Research for Evidence Based Practice
This textbook is a result of the Georgia Affordable Learning Initiative to reduce textbook costs for students by using Open Educational Resources (OERs). This project replaced previous physical textbook resource materials with No-Cost-to-Students textbooks for the on-line section of NURS 4402: Nursing Research for Evidence Based Practice for Spring 2015 in the Kennesaw State University. This course prepares students to understand the role of research in evidence-based practice in nursing and healthcare. Students learn to locate, appraise, and integrate reliable sources of evidence based on models of evidence-based practice as a scholarly endeavor.
