Dean's Research Day

About the Event

Nursing research is at the core of advancing health care. As a champion of nursing research that has impact, Dean Kathleen Potempa organized an initiative in 2009 to bring together the nursing community for a day dedicated to research. Students reviewing posters during Dean's Research Day 2013Dean Potempa's goal was not only to provide an additional forum for faculty; she also wanted to give students at all levels an opportunity to present their research, igniting and fueling their own research ambitions. Now an annual event at the school, Dean's Research Day remains a way for faculty, students, and university health care professionals to share the impact of their research, while hearing new perspectives and forging collaborative partnerships.
