Nursing Research: Florence Nightingale era discussion

This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

  • CO 3: Identify ethical issues common to research involving human subjects. (PO 6)
  • CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (POs 7 & 8)

We begin our journey into discovering the new world of research and evidence-based practice (EBP) by exploring our past. After completing the required readings and lesson, answer the following:

  • Explain how research has evolved since the Florence Nightingale era.
  • Discuss how research and EBP are different; include how you believe research supports EBP for nursing.
  • Describe one past/historical unethical breach of research conduct; then, share how you would ensure care of a study participant using one ethical or legal research consideration (guideline/principle).
