Graduate Research Exposition

Thanks to everyone who came out to the 3rd Annual Spring Doctor of Nursing Practice Research Exposition!
The Spring Doctor of Nursing Practice Research Exposition is an annual showcase featuring DNP nursing capstone projects to the University and community. We had 19 graduate students showcasing their research through poster and oral presentations.
If you are interested in the research programs, the research program is available via this link . 


Undergraduate Research

Faculty and graduate student applications are now open for FSU's 2015-2016 Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP). UROP is a nationally recognized, year-long program in which over 250 high-achieving underclassmen, transfer, and veterans students serve as research assistants to faculty and graduate students. Faculty and graduate student mentors interview and select admitted UROP students and direct their work during the year. All UROP students attend a year-long research colloquium and present at the annual FSU Undergraduate Research Symposium.

As UROP Research Sponsors, faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students from any department can have undergraduate research assistants at no cost to them. Faculty can also receive a materials grant of up to $1,000 and be eligible for a $2,000 Undergraduate Research Mentor award. 

We encourage you to upload a research or creative project for which you would like research assistants (and view previous UROP projects) through our site: Projects must be uploaded by August 23rd, 2015.

For more information on UROP, contact Dr. Joe O'Shea, Director of the Center for Undergraduate Research & Academic Engagement, at

Dr. Mai Kung

Nurses make up the largest segment of the nation’s health care workforce, yet their vital role on the front lines of patient care is not always fully realized or utilized.

Mai Kung, a faculty member at Florida State University’s College of Nursing since 2007, is seeking to change that through influencing and shaping health care policy to remove unnecessary government limitations on the nursing profession in order to improve patient care. (click for more)
