  • Nurses Health Sudies

    A historic study, a nursing tradition

    The Nurses’ Health Studies are the largest, longest running investigations of women’s health.

    Started in 1976 and expanded in 1989, the information provided by its 238,000 dedicated nurse-participants has allowed NHS to produce key advances in literally hundreds of important topics–altering medical practice and changing national dietary guidelines. The study is conducted by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
