Welcome to the Office of Research and Innovation (ORI). Our research mission is to advance nursing science, educate future nurse scientists, and provide the evidence to advance the health and wellness of our communities. The goal of the ORI is to support our faculty investigators and contribute to the development of our emerging scholars. The UCLA School of Nursing supports innovative programs of research that align strategically with UCLA initiatives in research and education. Cutting-edge faculty scholarship has helped transform nursing care through discovery, mentorship of doctoral and post-doctoral scholars, teaching, and community partnerships.
