Mayo Clinic supports the conduct of nursing research. Mayo Clinic has Ph.D.-prepared nurses that lead and partner in original research studies that address unmet patient needs to advance patient care. Nurses at Mayo Clinic, regardless of educational level or position, are encouraged to engage in research through unit-based clinical trials and interactions with investigators.

Areas of particular research interest include:

  • Testing the efficacy of self-management of sedative therapy for anxiety among critically ill patients receiving mechanical ventilatory support
  • Assessing symptoms among ICU patients receiving noninvasive mask ventilation
  • Developing interventions to improve the well-being of people with life-limiting illnesses
  • Developing interventions for family caregivers to manage stress
  • Developing interventions to manage chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy
  • Assessing symptoms in young, working-age adults who have survived a stroke
  • Understanding and managing workplace violence
