Topic 1: Nursing Research
Nursing research differs from research in other fields in that nursing draws data and develops interventions from a broad knowledge base (e.g. social science, biology, chemistry, etc.). The advantage of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaboration is increasingly apparent. Review Bringing Science to Life: The Interdisciplinary Advantage (NINR, 2011).
After reviewing, please address the following:
- Compare and contrast nursing research to that of other fields of study.
- Appraise the role of the NP in the process of collaboration with researchers in other fields.
- Distinguish the role of the NP in clinical trials.
