Scholar Forum

The purpose of the Nursing Science Scholar Forum is to foster the creation and dissemination of scholarship focused on domains of health and healthcare that are relevant to nursing science.

The forum strives to regularly host presentations of completed and ongoing research. Most events are interdisciplinary and open to all students and faculty. We actively encourage participation from individuals on campus and beyond.
