Connect with Nursing Researchers

The best way to connect with a Nursing faculty member to ask about paid or volunteer research opportunities is to contact them directly. We recommend exploring each faculty member’s research interests here and then contacting those who have similar interests to you. 


Once you have found a professor you would like to work with, please email them directly. Consider answering the following questions to help them learn more about you and your research interests.

Who are you?

Tell them a little about yourself

What are your interests?
