The purpose of this assignment is to investigate the research process while completing a critical examination of qualitative or quantitative research relative to a current nursing issue or practice. The goal is for student to further investigate the research process, improve knowledge of evidence based practice, refine information literacy skills, understand research and engage in activities to become a lifelong learner.
