Research at the UAB School of Nursing

There’s a reason the UAB School of Nursing is #1 in Alabama, and #5 among the nation's public schools, for nursing research. Innovative nursing and health care solutions happen here every day. As nurses we seek continuous care improvement, and to provide the best steps toward wellbeing, better quality of life and health equity for our patients, their families and our communities. We don’t just look at the disease and its processes and treatment. Our researchers collaborate with other health disciplines to look at patients, families and communities as a whole to generate the knowledge to create solutions that change the landscape of nursing and health care, and revolutionize education and practice to improve the lives of all people. And, as part of one of the nation’s leading academic health science centers, the UAB School of Nursing is well-positioned to lead these solutions for critical health care and health equity issues facing the world today.
