Nursing scholars at the top of their professional game

With more than $24 million in grants garnered over the last decade alone, nursing scholarship at UVA is nursing research at its best. Varied, passionate and fortified by experience, partnerships and publications, professors work in distinct research clusters:

  • cancer treatment & prevention
  • cardiovascular disease & prevention
  • chronic disease
  • compassionate & palliative care
  • dementia & aging
  • health disparities
  • interprofessional education
  • intimate partner violence
  • mental health nursing
  • nursing history
  • pediatric & family health
  • quality & safety
  • resilience & mindfulness
  • women's health & reproductive outcomes

It’s no wonder that doctoral students find UVA Nursing’s scholarly atmosphere a great place to get started on a career in academia. Because research is a critical element of the PhD program, we admit students whose own research interests are congruent with those of our faculty.
