Nursing Research: Building the Base for Practice

Nursing is the oldest of arts and the youngest of professions. Our work is rooted in the compassionate care given over the centuries to those who can not care for themselves. The modern profession of nursing is built on expertise, and knowledge. As we move into the 21st century, the importance of research in building knowledge and establishing the evidence base for nursing practice continues to grow.

UCLA nurse-scholars, nurse-scientists, and nurse-researchers are highly trained and committed clinicians and superb scholars. We are taking our places at the tables where administrative and public health policies are debated. We bring to those tables not only a nursing perspective - a voice for caring and compassion - but also clear and compelling data to support our proposals and positions.

The Office of Research team supports the UCLA SON faculty as they identify the critical questions for nursing practice and address those questions through research. We invite you to explore our site and learn about the exciting work that is underway and the support available to help you build your research portfolio.
