The Montana State University College of Nursing’s research and creative activity demonstrates impact on the state’s and the world’s pressing challenges through application of our discoveries in communities, industry, and organizations, as well as through academic indicators of the expansion of knowledge. The MSU CON serves a predominantly rural state and carries unique possibilities for inference, translation, and impact. Our research and creative activity will address pressing health issues and capitalize on interdisciplinary scholarship to solve complex issues.
The College of Nursing is a national leader in rural nursing research and is responsive to the evolving health needs of the people of Montana and the nation. Faculty members in the college contribute through their research, to a variety of important health and health care topics. Information about a faculty member’s research can be found on their personal web page from the Directory.
Nursing undergraduates are encouraged to talk with their advisors, professors and other faculty members about research. Some arrangements, including paid student positions for conducting research, are made informally according to student interest.
The Undergraduate Scholars Program at MSU is the primary resource for undergraduates interested in participating in research. The Undergraduate Scholars Program offers research grant funding, offers travel grants for students, promotes opportunities for students to present their projects to the MSU and Bozeman communities by coordinating the annual Student Research Celebration and Student Research Month events, promotes opportunities for students to present their projects to a national audience by providing funding and travel coordination for the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), and provides training and support for students interested in getting started with undergraduate research.
