Welcome to the Center for Nursing Research (CNR)


Mission & Aims

The mission of the Center for Nursing Research (CNR) at SON is to support and facilitate the development of nurse scientists and their research.

The Goals of the CNR:

  • Foster a sustainable culture of scholarship
  • Develop an infrastructure to support and disseminate nursing research
  • Facilitate interprofessional research collaboration
  • Engage students in the research process

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 School's annual Evidence-Based Practice Poster Day.

The School of Nursing is a partner in a major research consortium of the Weill Cornell Medicine 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, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, the Hunter College Center for Translational and Basic Research (CTBR) and the Cornell Cooperative Extension in New York City.
