Nursing is a unique discipline with a body of knowledge that is continually challenged to look at what it does in new and innovative ways. The excitement of nursing science lies in the generation of new knowledge that broadens society's understanding of human health and illness and nursing's role in promoting health and quality of life.
Research interests include the care and promotion of health in infants, children, adolescents, adults, older adults, and families, symptom management, exercise, and quality-of-life in vulnerable populations. Specific research foci include investigations of patients with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses.
Since its founding over a half-century ago, the School has had an unwavering commitment to engaging in research that enhances nursing's scientific foundation. At Rutgers, research is integral to classroom teaching and our service to the community.
