Nursing scholars at the top of their professional game

With more than $24 million in 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:

  • compassionate & palliative care
  • intimate partner violence
  • nursing history
  • pediatric & family health
  • chronic disease
  • health disparities
  • interprofessional education
  • dementia and aging
  • oncology
  • resilience and mindfulness

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.
