Abstract: In 2011/2012, the UBC School of Nursing was awarded over $7.28 million in research funding, which represents a 306% increase from the previous year. Approximately three-quarters of this funding was awarded through Canadian Institutes of Health Research Operating Grants. Throughout the report, we include comparisons to con-textualize our most recent funding and publication re-sults. In the case of funding, we highlighted historical trends in two distinct ways, to contrast the irregular nature of research funding agency revenue with the stabilizing influence of overlapping, multi-year projects and programmatic funding. The number of peer-reviewed journal publications continues to grow. We have moni-tored impact using bibliometric approaches including citation rates and journal impact factors. However, it has been challenging to track and aggregate the numerous chap-ters and books authored by faculty members. For these and related public presenta-tions and media attention, we elected to highlight a few examples to give a flavor of the work being done in the School. Because we know that numbers are only part of the picture, we have included profiles of several of our School’s scholars. Of course, there are so many more stories to be told about the compelling research and teaching scholarship our faculty and graduate students are conducting, which we hope to continue to celebrate in future reports.
