message from the dean

After careful consideration by the College of Nursing, UF Health and the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center, it has been decided to postpone the April 17 Research Summit and Malasanos Lectureship, as the university and our clinical partners prepare to respond and take precautionary measures in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our students, faculty and clinical partners are foremost in our minds as we announce this decision. At this time, we do not have information on when the annual event will rescheduled, but we encourage all to please stay tuned for further details. Thank you to all who submitted abstracts and/or planned to attend the April 17 Research Summit. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with this public health concern.

The College of Nursing, UF Health, and the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center are partnering to present the 2020 Nursing Research Summit and Malasanos Lectureship. The Nursing Research Summit will showcase innovative research that can be used to solve complex health problems.
