Course Description
The four-day institute offers a comprehensive overview of essential topics in nursing research in order to enhance the nurse’s ability to critically read and evaluate research studies. It is intended for nurses who have never had a research class but wish they did; for those who did, but at the time wished they didn’t; and for those who have an interest in nursing research and evidence-based practice, and would like to gain confidence in critically evaluating the evidence.
