Responding to changes in healthcare through innovative research and practice

SCHOOL OF NURSING

By increasing access to our high-quality undergraduate and graduate nursing programs for diverse student populations, Stony Brook can develop nurse leaders at all entries of practice with the overall goal of meeting the demands of a shifting healthcare climate. We must develop a curriculum that addresses current needs and trends in healthcare redesign and prepare students to address critical issues in the field, including system transformation, clinical improvement and the needs of population health.

We will also strengthen our research initiatives in order to advance the scientific and theoretical foundations of nursing. With your support, we will transform ourselves into a top-tier public school of nursing, recognized for excellence in research, education and practice.

Launch of a New PhD Program

Our PhD program will prepare nurse leaders to collaborate across disciplines to solve complex problems, such as healthcare system redesign, as well as to address multiple issues facing individuals, families, communities and populations. Interdisciplinary research that is both translational and innovative will be foundational to the program. We will accomplish this through adding faculty professorships, additional funding for graduate fellowships, endowed scholarships and matching grant monies, and individual support of specific student research projects.

We will accomplish this through adding faculty professorships and additional funding for scholarships.
