This course is designed, consistent with the role of the Master's prepared nurse, to advance the practitioners knowledge beyond the baccalaureate level- to no longer simply accept what is, rather, to question why. Research is a major force in nursing. Through Nursing Research, many innovations and changes have occurred in practice, education and health policy. The Master's prepared nurse is expected to not only understand the research findings, but should be capable of generating new research.
