Welcome to the Center for Nursing Research (CNR)

The Center for Nursing Research (CNR) at Hunter College is evidence of the high value the School and the College place on the development of nurse researchers. The CNR offers support to faculty in all stages of the research process, from conceptualization of research design through obtaining funding, implementation of the research project, data analysis and publication of findings. Opportunities are provided for students to participate in research with faculty as research assistants. The Center assists students in the preparation of research posters for presentation at nursing conferences and the CNR annual Evidence-Based Practice Poster Day.


Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing is a partner in a major research consortium of the Weill Cornell Medical College Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC). The mission of the CTSC is to provide an environment that allows optimal use of our considerable multi-institutional assets and the diversity of our patient population to move translational research seamlessly from bench to bedside and to the community. The CTSC acts as a conduit through which essential resources, technological tools and education programs for all partners can be efficiently shared and managed.  The multi-institutional consortium includes The Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Hunter College School of Nursing, the Hunter College Center for Translational and Basic Research and the Cornell University Cooperative Extension in New York City.

HBSON, as a consortium member, receives funding for faculty pilot funding, statistical consultation, external review of grant proposals and manuscripts. Several HBSON faculty collaborate with Weill-Cornell faculty to conduct interdisciplinary research projects.

The Center is led by Liz Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN, Assistant Dean for Research and the William Randolph Hearst Foundation Chair in Gerontology. Dr. Capezuti can be reached by email at:
