Neuroscience Nursing Research Center

The Neuroscience Nursing Research Center (NNRC) is dedicated to ensuring that nurses at all levels are able to provide vital research contributions to the science of caring for patients with neurological illness. The NNRC provides guidance to nurses who are interested in engaging in research by leveraging and coordinating existing research-related resources.

Learn about our recent success assisting nurses in their research.

NNRC faculty and staff work closely with nurses from the beginning to the completion of a study by providing guidance on idea formulation, protocol development, IRB assistance, funding opportunities, coordination of protocol, statistical support, and publication. 

The NNRC is a vital part of the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapuetics and works closely with nursing at UT Southwestern. Additionally, the NNRC has partnered with the Neuroscience Clinical Research Center (NCRC) to share resources.

The NNRC selected six UT Southwestern nurses for its inaugural group of fellows.
