View Comments (0)Print ArticleEmail Article
The University of Maryland School of Nursing, Baltimore, recently advanced to 19th place among nursing schools receiving research funding from the National Institutes of Health. The ranking is the school's highest yet.

NIH rankings are based on the amount of research dollars awarded by NIH to each school. These competitive grants are reviewed by NIH experts for their scientific merit and program relevance. In 2011, University of Maryland School of Nursing faculty members attracted more than $2.5 million in NIH grants for research in areas such as chronic pain, impulsivity and drug abuse, neuromuscular disorders and bone health.

"This achievement is a tribute to our school's leadership and to our esteemed nurse scientists," said Susan G. Dorsey, PhD, RN, FAAN, associate professor and interim associate dean for research. "Grants from NIH are among the most competitive, so this is quite an accomplishment for our faculty and our school."
