Discovery of knowledge is a primary goal of any university and in fact, of humankind. Regardless of your field, you should seek out opportunities to participate in an original research project while you are still a student to gain important skills and to learn more about the actual process of discovery. Research experiences often lead directly to job offers after graduation and to acceptance and financial support for competitive graduate programs. To find a possible research opportunity, consult the following resources:
- Talk with your professors and other students to ask for their suggestions.
- Speak with a representative of URI College of Nursing about a placement that may meet your needs.
- Look for opportunities that may be posted on the bulletin boards of your department's office and on the College of Nursing Student Lounge.
- College of Nursing faculty are actively engaged in research, and on occasion utilize students as members of their research teams. Consult the Associate Dean of Nursing's office re: such opportunities.
