Research is at the core of both the School of Nursing and The University of Texas at Austin mission statements, and as such is fundamental to our purpose. The research performed by School of Nursing students prepares our graduates to be the future of nursing research. The School of Nursing is proud to highlight a selection of student research in this section.
The School of Nursing Undergraduate Nursing Honors Program offers honors students the opportunity to gain valuable research experience under the direct supervision of a faculty mentor. Once their research is complete, honors students summarize their work in a professional style written report and publically present their findings.

A combination of conceptual approaches, challenging interactions in seminar discussions, and work with active researchers produces a stimulating environment for scholarly development. The program is designed to help students identify a dissertation topic, apply for research funding, and begin a lifelong research career.
