Northeastern is a top tier one (R-1) research university, pursuing interdisciplinary R&D in all areas including innovations in nursing and healthcare. This critical inquiry impacts real lives in profound ways. At Northeastern School of Nursing, we apply Boyer’s model of scholarship as a conceptual anchor to define and describe the scholarly contributions of our faculty and students. We recognize the following areas of scholarship as complementary.
The scholarship of discovery and knowledge creation includes original research that advances knowledge and is pursued through:
– Primary empirical research
– Historical research
– Theory development
– Methodological studies
Encompassing the systematic study of teaching and learning processes, this requires work be made public and available for peer review and be reproducible and extensible by other scholars.
– Development of innovative
– Program development
This involves the synthesis of information across disciplines, topics within a discipline, or time.
– Translational research
– Dissemination and Implementation science
Practice or application (also called the scholarship of engagement) extends to those within or outside the University and involves the rigor and application of disciplinary expertise with results that can be shared with and/or evaluated by peers.
– Development of clinical knowledge
– Evaluating systems of care
– Development of innovative healthcare
The School of Nursing at the Bouvé College of Health Sciences has received a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a new center designed to advance nursing scientists’ research and effective technology interventions for improving self-care and self-management for America’s older adults.
The grant, from the NIH’s National Institute of Nursing Research, provides the support to launch the Northeastern Center for Technology in Support of Self Management and Health, also known as NUCare, at the School of Nursing. The center is also closely aligned with the College of Computer and Information Science.
