Faculty research at the UMass Amherst College of Nursing is leading the way into the future. 

Our faculty research covers a wide variety of specializations and contributes to a global improvement in patient care, increase in nursing knowledge, and incorporation of advances in technology into practice. Some of our most prominent areas of research include: 


  •     Social justice in nursing
  •     Gerontology and caring for the elderly 
  •     Mental health care 
  •     Managing chronic illness
  •     Symptom self-management 


We believe excellent research informs good teaching.
