Research and Infrastructure Support

The Center for Research and Scholarship (CFRS) provides infrastructure support for FPB faculty and students for research and dissemination of scholarly work. Some of our services include:

  • announcing funding opportunities
  • assisting with development of research proposals (budgeting, editing, administrative forms, and compilation) and research results
  • providing guidance with post-award compliance, budgeting, and human subject approval issues
  • facilitating faculty scholarship by developing a faculty research mentorship program
  • assisting in faculty and joint faculty-student publications
  • providing leadership participation and recognition at national nursing research conferences and meetings

At FPB, we strive to look beyond the usual research support structures of mentorship, availability of research pilot funds, and training in grantsmanship. We seek to delve into deeper structural foundations, to reveal what truly makes a community of productive scholars. The CFRS supports and nurtures this community.
