Advanced Nursing Research


Just as a career providing healthcare is called a medical practice, in many ways being a researcher is also a practice. Both occupations actively pursue optimal health and wellness, through direct intervention and through investigation, respectively.

Evidence-based practice, which the is the conscientious use of current best evidence in making decisions about patient care, combines medical practice with effective research skills.

The resources listed in this guide will help you practice your research. Here you will find the appropriate portals to access high quality healthcare information and to help you better process the evidence from the medical literature.

Also note that online and low residency students have provisions so that access to the print books, journal articles and DVDs on the library shelves are available to you.
