Integrating Undergraduate Research Experiences for Nurses: an Expansion of the Wolf Project

Anoka-Ramsey Community College


Biology faculty at Anoka-Ramsey Community College noted that many students studying for the health professions were not receiving adequate training in laboratory techniques and research, a critical component of modern healthcare practice and immunology. To address this need, external partnerships were created to bake a full-fledged research program into the Anatomy & Physiology II courses focused on wolf blood sampling and analysis. Students studying for the healthcare professions now gain professional research experience, providing them a broader understanding of how laboratories work and the important role they play in healthcare.
