While nurses are often most visible at hospital bedsides or in clinics, they also engage in robust research—informed by their wealth of clinical experience—that directly improves the lives of patients.
At Cizik School of Nursing, our nurse-scientists know that health care is only as good as the science behind it. As the complexities of care delivery grow almost as fast as the demand, the nursing field calls for enhanced techniques, more advanced technology, and new approaches.
With backgrounds in wide-ranging specialties like emergency care, pediatrics, labor and delivery, oncology, and biomedical informatics, researchers at Cizik School of Nursing draw on knowledge from firsthand lessons to make breakthroughs that translate from bench to bedside.
They perform this vital work at a nationally-acclaimed nursing school with access to the combined expertise of all six UTHealth Schools, located in the midst of the Texas Medical Center with vast research infrastructure and collaborative opportunities.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has seen nurses place themselves in harm’s way to provide vital daily care for patients at hospitals and clinics stretched to the breaking point. Their dedication illustrates the critical importance of supporting the researchers whose discoveries help frontline nurses carry out their lifesaving work.
