Nurses' skills in observing and adjusting treatments, medications, and even habits for patients gives nursing research a new and important role in the evolution of healthcare in America. For those on "a quest for making things better," says National Institute of Nursing Research Director Patricia Grady, "a curious mind is the thing you most need."
Nurse researchers excel in investigating techniques to assess, care for, and empower their patients. Whether developing tools for use at the bedside, conducting research with patients in local or global communities, or mentoring the next generation of nurse scientists, Hopkins nurse researchers are committed to discovering a better way to care.
It is the translation of research into action that brings new knowledge to bear on patient care. And who better to ensure that research rapidly be applied to the clinical setting than nurses? "There's a a long history of public trust of nursing," says Professor Miyong Kim. "We can make research relevant for people."
