Overview

Research is at the very core of our School's mission. In tangible ways, our research advances nursing knowledge, guides improvements in health services and patient care, and contributes actively in the development of new and exciting educational course content.

Located on one of the foremost health science campuses in the country, the UCSF School of Nursing enjoys resources available at only a handful of research-intensive universities. These resources specifically include the UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) for interdisciplinary research training, with its 9 clinical research units located throughout San Francisco in both in-patient and out-patient facilities.

The UCSF School of Nursing is a leading recipient of competitive research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), ranking No. 2 in the nursing field nationwide. Among public nursing schools, the UCSF School of Nursing has remained the No. 1 recipient of NIH funds for 16 consecutive years. NIH grants and other sources of funding make it possible for faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows to sustain significant research programs that positively impact nursing practice, patient health care and education.
