Penn Nursing Research Centers

New pathways to discovery

Penn Nursing scientists translate and advance new nursing knowledge across an impressive range of healthcare areas, including: geriatrics, pediatrics, quality-of-life choices, nurse staffing, public policy, and much more. Our world-renowned faculty collectively rank near the top of all schools of nursing receiving federal funding. Faculty and student research efforts are vigorously supported through the Office of Nursing Research, major research awards, and the University's significant research resources. Research produced here at the School of Nursing is nationally and internationally recognized, helps to inform public health policy and is published in a wide range of high-impact, interdisciplinary journals.

"The pivotal change in nursing education coincided with the cultivation of the nurse scientist. There are so many phenomena that nurses are involved with. If nurses don't work with these phenomena — who will? I knew the only way for Penn Nursing to survive was to be a top-tier research school." Dr. Claire M. Fagin
