Center for Nursing Research


Interdisciplinary collaboration is the hallmark of our research. Faculty partner with scientists within and beyond Penn State on studies that encompass the life span. Grants from federal and private foundations (including NIH, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute [PCORI], American Lung Association, The Donaghue Foundation, Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation) support the work of our researchers.

The College of Nursing’s Research Office provides an organized infrastructure designed to support graduate research faculty and their interdisciplinary teams throughout the various stages of their projects, from preparing proposals and obtaining funding to disseminating results in peer-reviewed journals and at national and international conferences.
