Faculty and Mentorship
william f. connell school of nursing
At Boston College, our faculty members have methodological expertise in qualitative, quantitative, and historical approaches to research. They continue to push the frontiers of knowledge in our discipline while helping our students develop their ability to conduct research that will improve the practice of nursing. Ethical decision-making and clinical judgment have always been at the heart of our curriculum. We have long-standing expertise in studying violence and abuse and have recently added expertise about the psychological effects of teasing and bullying among school-aged children. Spirituality and health, gerontology, women's health, and palliative care are just some of the areas in which we focus our research.
Through an ongoing relationship with faculty advisors, students are mentored in the development of research skills and the preparation of their dissertation research. A faculty cadre with both clinical and research expertise serve as invaluable resources to doctoral students in fostering their academic and professional development.
Connell School faculty are conducting research in various areas and participating in variety of professional organizations. Read more »
