Located on a Big 10 research campus, the College of Nursing has access to an enviable array of resources including collaboration with clinical partners at UI Hospitals and Clinics, the first Magnet-designated, and only tertiary hospital in Iowa, as well as strong research partnerships with the Institute for Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS); Iowa Department of Public Health; Veterans Health Administration; Hardin Library for the Health Sciences; numerous community-based nursing care facilities; and a variety of interdisciplinary colleagues across the health and social sciences.
External funding is robust at the College. College of Nursing faculty and postdoctoral fellows are PI’s on 28 externally funded grants totaling $20,297,057. Of these, 8 are NIH-funded R- or K-series grants ($12,313,618), 5 are devoted to training, including one NIH-funded T32 ($4,613,590), and 15 are funded by private organizations ($3,369,849). In addition, faculty are currently funded as Investigators on 8 grants submitted from other Colleges, totaling $27,470,097. Students from the College are PIs on 7 externally funded grants, totaling $311,009, including one K award through the Institute for Clinical and Translational Science.
This funding allows us to turn ideas into innovations that advance knowledge development and dissemination that ultimately advance the nursing discipline. We are committed to evidence-based practice and translational research and moving our research findings from theory and science into care delivery, resulting in improved health outcomes.
