Nursing Research | Overview
The guiding principle of research in the Department of Nursing is to translate exceptional and creative nursing practice into improved patient and family outcomes. Studies conducted in the Department are directed at identifying new means for integrating nursing practice and science to enhance the quality of patient care. They not only generate important patient care benefits, but also play a vital role in advancing nursing practice by defining the "value added" of research-based clinical care.
Featured researchers in the Department of Nursing hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School.
