Nursing Research & Sponsored Programs

The School of Nursing Nursing Research & Sponsored Programs (NRSP) Office is dedicated to supporting research through an array of services. Under the leadership of the associate dean for research, statisticians and other qualified staff members of the research management team provide expert assistance to graduate students, faculty, and staff in identifying funding opportunities, developing grant proposals, submitting grant proposals and contracts, and managing post-award processes.

Staff members provide expertise in federal, state, and private funding mechanisms, offer assistance in research subject recruitment, and serve as liaisons between the university's central research offices and School of Nursing researchers.

The NRSP Office also provides online grant preparation resources for School of Nursing researchers.

Research Design & Statistics Unit

The Research Design and Statistics Unit (RDSU) within the NRSP Office provides consultation and support around issues of research design, data analysis, and manuscript preparation. Statisticians are available to provide support for both faculty and graduate students as they prepare and implement their research proposals. The RDSU offers online training in statistical software packages commonly used by School of Nursing researchers. It also offers access to a variety of specialized data, data analysis methods, and methodological papers.
