Institutional Review Board

About the IRB

The Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a federally registered board responsible for the protection of human subject research at NMC. The IRB performs critical oversight in the review, approval and monitoring of all research protocols, quality improvement projects and evidenced-based practice projects by students and faculty at NMC.

External requests to recruit faculty, staff or students to participate in online surveys or other research protocols must submit application materials to the NMC IRB for review and must obtain NMC IRB approval prior to conducting research. All external research/projects must be in alignment with the mission, vision, core values and strategic priorities of Nebraska Methodist College.

To ensure protection of human subjects, all investigators shall be familiar with:

  1. The Belmont Report
  2. 45 CFR 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations
  3. Nebraska Methodist College IRB Policy Manual (PDF, 2MB)

Inquiries can be submitted to the IRB Chair at IRB@methodistcollege.edu.
