NURP 411 - Scholarly Inquiry

The focus of NURP411, Scholarly Inquiry, is the development of a scholarly project, which provides students with the opportunity to evaluate and review evidence and apply this evidence to clinical practice. In collaboration with the faculty, students will work in small groups to identify a scholarly question, develop a context for the question with a problem statement, implement an in-depth, comprehensive literature review on the topic, implement the project, analyze the data, and disseminate the findings. The development of this project requires an understanding of the historical perspective of nursing theory and research as well as theoretical perspectives in nursing and related disciplines. Students will explore these perspectives to frame the development of nursing as a science and to increase awareness about the relationship among theory, nursing science, and nursing practice. Content on quality and practice improvement, as well as quality and safety will be discussed.
