Research in Nursing

Nursing is an art and a science that involves the prevention of illness and the promotion of health. Student nurses have a combination of clinical and classroom experiences which prepare them to provide direct and indirect health care services to individuals, families, and communities. Because health care has many interdisciplinary aspects, the nursing student may need to look for research materials on ethics, law, medicine, psychology, or examine various issues relating to families, society, diversity, and public institutions.

This guide is a starting point; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
