Nursing research is both basic and behavioral research that develops and/or contributes to new knowledge relevant to nursing practice. The National Institute of Nursing Research states that nursing research develops knowledge to:

  • Build the scientific foundation for clinical practice
  • Prevent disease and disability
  • Manage and eliminate symptoms caused by illness
  • Enhance end-of-life and palliative care
All St. Luke's nurses are supported through the Center for Nursing Excellence to develop research questions and pursue formal human subjects research, either through our Nursing Research and EBP Fellowship program or through individually mentored research initiatives.
