CON Advances To 21 in NIH Research Funding Ranking
The MUSC College of Nursing has placed 21st among over 700 U.S. nursing schools on the National Institutes of Health’s research funding list. This is the third time the college has achieved a national ranking, coming in at 30th in 2011 and 48th in 2010.
With a number of large NIH grants awarded in 2012, the College of Nursing faculty researchers brought in about $3.5 million in research funding. With this funding, the college continues to make a difference in improving the quality of health care and in the advancement of nursing research.
“This national ranking attests to the outstanding outcomes of our nursing program here at MUSC” said Dean Gail Stuart. “Our innovative and dynamic faculty, staff and students are clear leaders, not only in the region but nationally."
