Nurse Researchers

Research and innovation are key strategic components to Cleveland Clinic’s business model. Our team of highly experienced nurse researchers is dedicated to mentoring, coaching and educating nurses in nursing research. They provide guidance and support to facilitate evidence-based nursing practices per their clinical backgrounds or research interests. Additionally, each researcher has his or her own focused program of research.
