At the Forefront of Discovery

The Frances Payne School of Nursing is part of an overall evolution in nursing science. Besides looking at the components of illness—what’s wrong, the pathology, the mechanism underlying therapies—we also view research in terms of factors such as social influences, psychological functioning and behaviors that affect health. The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing is well-positioned, more than ever, to lead in responding to critical health care issues that are facing the world.
