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. The Center sponsors two Research Round Tables each semester at which faculty present their research and receive feedback from colleagues.

The Center also facilitates student research. 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.

Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing is a partner in a major research consortium with Weill Cornell Medical College, which was selected by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) to establish and lead a new Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC). The Center's goal is to facilitate new collaborative research studies that quickly and effectively result in new patient treatments and preventive interventions. The CTSC is a multidisciplinary collaboration between a diverse set of institutions, including distinguished nearby hospitals, the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing and the Center for Study of Gene Structure and Function at Hunter College. This affiliation affords nursing faculty an opportunity to become primary investigators on federally-funded grants, in collaboration with a partner from another CTSC institution. The Director of the CNR helps facilitate proposals submitted to the CTSC.

The Center is led by Carol Roye, EdD, RN, CPNP, Assistant Dean for Research at the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing and Co-Director of the Office of Research and Grant Support (ORGS). ORGS offers research support, career mentoring, and opportunities for interdisciplinary research collaboration for Nursing and Health Sciences faculty throughout the Brookdale Campus.

The CNR is located in the West Building, Room 509W. The Director, Dr. Carol Roye can be reached by email at:, or by phone: 212-481-4332.
