Nursing research is the mechanism by which the profession develops its theoretical knowledge, advances understanding, and tests ideas related to the practice of nursing. The conduct of nursing research always involves people, so all the nursing values, knowledge, and skills relevant to general nursing practice are also central to nursing research. There are large numbers of nurses who work with medical or other research teams, often recruiting people into biomedical studies or collecting samples. There are also academic nurses who focus their work on pushing the boundaries of nursing knowledge. General adult nurses may become involved in research when studies are being conducted in their clinical areas, or they may pursue their own research as part of their professional development. This chapter outlines the key values and principles of nursing research relevant to general adult nurses.
