Welcome to the Office of Research webpage at the OU College of Nursing! The Office of Research was originally developed in 1995 as the Center for Clinical Nursing Research Utilization and Development as a joint partnership with select health care agencies in mid-state Oklahoma. In June 2006 the Center changed focus by reformatting the utilization aspects to encompass evidence-based practice. This webpage is designed to provide visitors with a description of the support and services that the Office of Research provides with easily accessible links to helpful resources. We hope you will find this page to be useful to your research and practice. Read further to learn more about the OUCN's research emphasis areas and funding history.
The mission of the Office of Research is to facilitate the advancement of knowledge to promote health and improve nursing care. The Office of Research supports research programs and scholarly activities of faculty with particular emphasis on research integrity, compassion, and excellence and extramural research funding. Support is also offered when requested by nurses engaged in research at nearby OU Hospitals and Clinics. In addition, the Office of Research facilitates the research and external funding of graduate students.
The faculty and staff of the Office of Research are committed to providing the College of Nursing faculty and students with the highest standard of service excellence. Services include grant submission assistance through research consultation (research design and methods), statistical services (identification of appropriate sample size, statistical methods, and software), data analysis presentation and interpretation of results, consultation on data management, and editorial services (research grants and articles). The Office of Research is responsible for ensuring integrity in science, assuring that faculty and students adhere to the requirements of the Office of Research Administration (ORA) and Institutional Review Board (IRB).
