The American Indian Program has moved. In May 2015 the program began looking for a

fully renovated by the Good Shepherd Mission, with the help of an Otten’s
Grant, for the American Indian Program. This
2 story building provides classroom, nursing lab and computer space for
students. Classes began in January 2016 in
the new location.

Research at NAU School of Nursing
The programs of research of our faculty are diverse. We are
united by an emphasis on improving health disparities in rural and underserved
communities regionally, nationally and internationally. Faculty conduct interdisciplinary
research in teams in four specialty areas:
Symptom Management: Research emphasizes cancer-related
fatigue, and acute, long-term and late effects of cancer.
violence: Faculty concentrate on issues
related to child abuse and intimate partner violence.
and End of Life: The research focuses on managing
early dementia, palliative care and end of life issues across the lifespan.
Wellness and Physical Activity: Research programs focus on cancer
and physical activity, nutrition and obesity and weight management.
Research is key to improving education, practice and patient
outcomes. Our work impacts practice, health outcomes, quality of care and
health policy to improve the health of our communities. We provide support, mentorship
and leadership to students and faculty through opportunities to collaborate on
projects and through interprofessional work. Laboratory and statistical support is
available through the College of Health and Human Services.
We actively seek students and faculty whose research
interests align with those of our faculty.
