The Greater Cleveland Nursing Research Consortium

The Greater Cleveland Nursing Research Consortium (GCNRC), established in 1996 at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, is an initiative to combine the expertise of a research-intensive school of nursing with the expertise of clinical health institutions within the Greater Cleveland area. The three goals of the Research Consortium are:

  1. To develop a collaborative relationship between administrators, clinicians and researchers in nursing
  2. To conduct clinically-relevant and high quality research across multiple and diverse clinical sites
  3. To develop a model for solving nursing practice and delivery challenges through collaborative research

The GCNRC is comprised of topic-centered groups or project teams consisting of clinicians and/or administrators from various health care institutions in the greater Cleveland area and faculty from the FPB School of Nursing. Project teams of the Research Consortium include the following:
