The University of Wisconsin–Madison is a research-intensive university. Research conducted by faculty in the School of Nursing is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Nursing Research, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, and other internal and external funding sources.
Faculty at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing focus on four areas of research: health and aging, chronic illness management, health promotion in individuals and populations, and informatics and health systems. We engage in interprofessional research partnerships with colleagues from industrial engineering, medicine, social work, psychology, educational psychology, and nutritional sciences. We are also active in the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), in partnership with the School of Medicine and Public Health, the School of Pharmacy, the School of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Engineering, and the Marshfield Clinic.
