Our Research Themes
The diagram (below) of research and scholarship in the College of Nursing is intended to graphically represent, within broad themes, the nature of our faculty's research and scholarly work. At the heart of our diagram is health, because human health is central to all research and scholarship in the College of Nursing. Research and scholarship is intended, through effective knowledge translation, to impact practice, health services, policy, ethics, and education, which are represented by the five ellipses surrounding four central themes. Knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) occurs at the intersection of all stages of research and scholarly activity, and is represented in the diagram wherever areas of impact (ellipses) and research and scholarly themes (inner circle) intersect. Research and scholarly activities are undertaken in collaboration with other disciplines, decision makers, and stakeholders. Research and scholarship in the College of Nursing can be divided into four general and interrelated themes, represented in the circle at the center of the diagram. This brochure highlights research in these four themes: Environments, Global, Diversity, and Across the Lifespan.
