OverviewThe purpose of this module is to introduce the beginning student to key ideas related to nursing research and to begin the exploration of assessing the evidence in order to discover the best approach/interventions for both care processes and outcomes. Students will begin examining their own clinical practice for potential improvements based on analysis of the ‘evidence’, such as research studies. Students begin addressing clinical issues by developing a topic for a PICO question.Course objectives with special relevance to module ONE:Course ObjectivesProgram Outcome1.
