Advance your nursing
As nursing advances from a vocation to a highly professionalised discipline, research is becoming an increasingly significant part of the work or Registered Nurses (RNs). At the very least, RNs are now expected to make use of research literature when making decisions. Critically appraising the significance of research literature can only be done effectively where nurses understand the principles of research design and research methodology in some depth. That is exactly what this unit is about!
