The Center for Excellence in Nursing has set the following objectives to cultivate international-level research excellence and quality at FON:

  1. Increase proficiency and competency in research and teaching in nursing graduate programs commensurate with international nursing institutions.
  2. Serve as a hub for quality academic activities and provision of academic services, both nationally and internationally.
  3. Serve as a center for sharing and exchanging knowledge and experience, both nationally and internationally, and for developing an evidence base in all areas of nursing.

Through these objectives, the Center encourages research collaboration across centers and increases dissemination of nursing research and best practices. The Center aims to increase publication of research findings in international journals to increase the reach of research findings.
