CRS Nursing



Overview of Services

The CRS nursing units are highly specialized patient care inpatient wards and outpatient units where researchers can learn about and conduct patient and disease-oriented research.

In addition, the nursing staff is charged with administering patient care and patient care protocols that apply to the research participants. The nurses are trained to make complex research-related

observations, perform precise collections of specimens, as well as data collection and documentation while providing exemplary patient care.


The CRS nurses incorporate the philosophy of translational and clinical research by promoting evidence-based practice through interdisciplinary collaboration amongst researchers, clinicians and nurses.

They demonstrate the ability to synthesize and integrate nursing standards and clinical skills in order to achieve research goals.
