Office of Nursing Research


Consistent with its mission of preparing 21st-century nurses to improve health care throughout the world, the College of Nursing pursues research in a wide variety of areas. Faculty and students are challenged to analyze problems, discover new findings, and collaborate with colleagues throughout USF Health to pursue a host of research projects related to cardiovascular health, cancer prevention and management, chronic illness, caregiver support, biobehavioral mechanisms, and many other issues.

The College of Nursing houses a biobehavioral lab with 2,000 dedicated square feet of space. It contains state-of-the-art equipment for conducting assays, such as inflammatory markers, stress hormones, proteomics, microbiome, and genetics. 


Nurse scientists in our college are committed to enhancing health and wellness of individuals, families, and communities through transformative research organized under four pillars of expertise, always accounting for equity and inclusive excellence.
