The NRC assists the researcher in the submission of a proposal and guides the researcher and proposal through the research approval process. The TRINTECH System assists the researcher in successfully completing the online research application and can be found at here.

Once submitted, the Chair of the NRC reviews the proposal content to assure that it is aligned with Hartford Hospital’s nursing research priorities.

Next, members of the Practice and Research Nursing council read the proposal. Contact will be made with the researcher to address questions or discuss issues that may arise.

Nursing Research Committee (NRC)Once approved by the NRC, the proposal is forwarded through the TRINTECH system to the hospital’s Research Committee.

At this point, depending on the type of research being conducted, the proposal can be granted one of three reviews; exempt, expedited, or full committee review. Once the researcher has received approval from the Research Office, he/she may implement their project.
