Nursing research, nursing theory, and evidence-based nursing practice

COURSE DESCRIPTION
Nursing research provides the scientific foundation for professional practice. Nursing research introduces the student to the basic research methodologies and statistical concepts and qualitative, quantitative, and epidemiologic research designs. Research methods and findings are appraised and applied within the framework of evidence-based professional practice. Research proposal development as a foundation for nursing inquiry is emphasized.

COURSE DESIGN
This course is designed to assist the RN-BSN learner to acquire the knowledge needed to engage in an evidence-based practice (EBP) that includes knowledge about research methods and how to incorporate research evidence into practice. The assignments in this course build on one another and are designed to guide the learner to develop a nursing research proposal and to critically evaluate research evidence with an overall goal to improve quality of care in clinical practice. An evidence-based approach aims to improve the effectiveness and safety of clinical care by incorporating the best and most recent scientific evidence into the patient care process. In Week One, the learner will begin with an examination of the ethical issues related to the protection of human participants in clinical research and complete a tutorial developed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) entitled “Protecting Human Research Participants.” In Week Two, the learner will visit the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) website and review current nursing research priorities. This information will be helpful in identification of a research problem and development of a problem statement and research question significant to nursing practice. A review of literature in Ashford’s online library and other resources will be completed, and in Week Three, learners will develop an annotated bibliography of three select articles relevant to their chosen research topics. Completion of the research proposal is the focus of Week Four. In Week Five, learners will complete an EBP tutorial sponsored by the University of Minnesota and perform a critical appraisal of selected evidence. Reflection on the completion of course outcomes concludes course activities. Nursing research, nursing theory, and evidence-based nursing practice.
