St. Charles Professorship

The primary goal of the St. Charles General Hospital Auxiliary Professorship is to enhance nursing research capacity and external potential funding for nursing research at LSU Health School of Nursing. While the Institute of Medicine argues that nursing research plays an important role in improving patient and population health, only a few nursing research programs are being carried out by nurse researchers in the state. Indeed, despite its 2018 budget of $157.6 million, $0 from the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) flowed into Louisiana in that year and in recent years. Thus much work needs to be done to increase training, resources, and mentoring for nursing researchers at LSU Health School of Nursing to prepare them to succeed at receiving NINR or other NIH funding.
