Nursing at the NIH Clinical Center

Nursing Research & Translational Science

The nursing research portfolio at the Clinical Center is a combination of studies responding to agreed upon program priorities and studies that are investigator-initiated, often arising from a clinical problem confronted by the clinical staff or from questions that emerge when a nurse is a collaborator on a biomedical study. Investigators have created areas of focus in their work, and staff members with clinical research questions are linked with the investigator with the most closely matching interests. Nursing research at the CC emphasizes health behaviors, quality of life, and disparities.

Program priorities for nursing at the Clinical Center include the following:

  • Health Related Quality of Life
  • Symptom Management and Functional Status
  • Health Behaviors
  • Health Disparities
  • Health Effects of Caregiving
  • Evidence-Based Practice/Translational Nursing Science
