Fulfilling its research mission daily, the School of Nursing has one of the most robust scientific research operations at the university.

UWM is one of the nation’s top 131 research universities as recognized by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

Research is vital to the school’s mission as a premier, academic, collegial nursing community. We’re engaged in transforming health care delivery and health care policy, and promoting wellness from rural to metropolitan communities for patients in need of prenatal care to elder care.

Nursing Research Focus

The school’s research potential is nurtured through the efforts of our faculty researchers, scientists, undergraduate and graduate-level research assistants and the Harriet H. Werley Center for Nursing Research.

Graduate and undergraduate students work alongside nursing faculty in creating bold and effective solutions for advancing local, national and global health. Our national and global perspectives and research expand the reach and relevancy of our work in key areas of nursing research and health care.

Research collaboration is key to advancing nursing science. Research groups at the school work alongside students to achieve success locally and globally.
