Stay Informed. Get Involved. Do Great Things.

The Center for Nursing Inquiry oversees the scholarly work of nurses in the Johns Hopkins Health System. Our goal is to build capacity for nurses to participate in the three forms of clinical inquiry: evidence-based practice,  quality improvement, and research. At the Center for Nursing Inquiry, we offer a variety of educational resources and expert guidance to help nurses engage in meaningful, high-quality scholarly work. We are dedicated to advancing the science of nursing.

Advancing the Nursing Profession Through Clinical Inquiry

Have you ever been at the bedside and had that “AHA” moment? You know, the one where you thought “there’s got to be a better way!” That’s nursing inquiry. Nurses involved in scientific inquiry raise questions about their clinical practice, challenge out of date or poorly functioning policies, and work with an interdisciplinary team to solve pressing nursing problems. Curiosity is the foundation of nursing inquiry.
