Nursing Research

The UCSF Health Department of Nursing is committed to advancing clinical inquiry that answers a question, solves a problem, or investigates an issue and that leads to improved patient and family care.

The UCSF Clinical Inquiry Model graphic represents the many dimensions of clinical inquiry.

UCSF Clinical Inquiry Model

Research studies, quality improvement projects, and evidence-based projects, have been conducted and disseminated across patient care settings at UCSF Medical Center, from the ambulatory clinics to the critical care areas, and in neonatal patients to geriatric patients. This includes forums that are regional, national, and international. Some of the initiatives and projects have been externally funded, while others have used internal funding.  UCSF Nursing is proud of its strong culture of clinical inquiry and innovation.
