NHWSN is committed to enabling its rich interdisciplinary research ecosystem for the creation and application of innovative methods to expand research efforts in the fight against cancer and position NHWSN as premier in cancer nursing research. Some of the priority areas of inquiry for nursing research to optimize cancer outcomes include the following, but not limited to: disease and symptom prevention, prediction, diagnosis, and prognosis; approaches to dampen the influences of social determinants of health and improve health equity and healthcare delivery; complex systems and biological modeling to optimize discovery; decision-making for policy and practice; use of technology to bridge the gaps between healthcare providers, patients, and communities.
The ideal candidate should have a doctoral degree and post doctoral training in a relevant discipline with a strong record of oncology academic research, a demonstrated capacity to publish and secure external funding as PI or MPI. Faculty will be an organizational champion in advancing NHWSN as the premier in cancer research and its nursing-related domains.
