Nursing 7203 is designed to review the scientific underpinnings of the research process including both qualitative and quantitate approaches and to provide activities which will enhance deeper and more critical quality review and analysis of various research studies. The course will provide students an opportunity to identify the role(s) of the advance practice nurses in the development and dissemination of research knowledge and clinical scholarship in organizational systems and to act as leaders to identify and develop clinical problems that warrant nursing research with positive individual and population based outcomes. The emphasis in the course is to facilitate the student in understanding the research process, using critical thinking in the critique of research studies, and the development of an advance practice role in the identification, development and dissemination of nursing research findings. The course builds foundation for the integration of knowledge from diverse sources and across disciplines and the application of new knowledge to address clinical problems. Pre-requisite: BIOS 6100
