Nursing Research and Scholarship

The Conway School of Nursing faculty and students conduct innovative and interdisciplinary research
and advance evidence-based practice quality improvement scholarship that is grounded in respect for
the human person and aims to improve health across the lifespan. Faculty and doctoral students make
national and international contributions to the literature in three main areas:

  • Innovations in Nursing Education: Curriculum redesign, nursing education reform through study of teaching and learning experiences, synchronous and asynchronous and microlearning modalities, including innovative immersive technologies such as extended reality (augmented and virtual reality), telehealth, and other technology-enabled simulation-based learning modalities.
  • Interventions to Address Health Disparities and Promote Health: Patient and family-centered care such as the impact of military life on families, feeding practices in infants and children and health promotion in women and children.
  • Self-Management of Chronic Disease Cardiac disease management, symptom management, resource utilization, tailored approaches to patient education in underserved populations, interventions to promote quality palliative care and support for caregivers of persons with cancer.
Conway School of Nursing faculty members collaborate with scientists in the other schools of The
Catholic University of America and with scientists, clinicians and policymakers in other universities,
health care institutions, government and industry nationally and globally.
