Innovation + Collaboration

Health Education Campus atrium view

Students at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing are surrounded by innovative teaching and research. 

Our researchers just received a $2.18 million grant from the National Cancer Institute, so they can find the best way to train and prepare family caregivers of patients with cancer. 

And, a $500,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health is funding a study to determine when it’s necessary—and when it’s unnecessarily expensive—to use medical helicopters to transport critically ill patients.

Read more about the study and how their efforts in data research could effect future patients.

Collaboration is the catalyst that inspires innovation—in teaching, learning and, ultimately, the best patient care.

Those values are seen in action every day inside our new Health Education Campus, a state-of-the-art space designed to encourage interaction among future health care professionals—nurses, dentists, physicians, physician assistants and more—in classrooms, simulation labs, and even in dining and study areas.
