About Rush University

The mission of Rush University College of Nursing is to prepare future generations of nursing leaders, contribute to the science of nursing through the generation and application of knowledge and advance innovation in clinical education. Located in the heart of Chicago, where one third of the community is African-American and one third is Latino, research at the College of Nursing focuses on the health needs of a highly diverse population and the elimination of health disparities. Our faculty leads a range of funded multidisciplinary studies targeting the prevention and treatment of health problems at the bedside, and in the community. The Office of Nursing Research and Scholarship provides a wide range of support services to faculty and students.
