Faculty and Research Support

Philanthropic partnerships are critically needed to advance research to improve health and quality of life for the chronically ill and vulnerable populations. Your investment at Duke University School of Nursing is leveraged by substantial funding from the NIH and other federal and private organizations. At this time in history — as the U.S. and other countries face aging populations and escalating chronic disease and federal support for research continues to decline — philanthropy can play a more important role than ever before. Now is the time to invest in nursing research.
