Exploring New Frontiers For the Working Nurse
2021 and beyond - it is an exciting time for Nursing. Efforts of nurse leaders over the last 50+ years have led the way in the nursing becoming a research-based discipline. Nursing research efforts have resulted in discovery, communication and innovation essential to evidence-guided nursing practice.
Nursing science continues to advance disciplinary knowledge to better understand human response to health and illness among varied populations. We continue to learn more about ourselves as nurses, working with others in varied settings in an ever-changing patient-focused healthcare environment. As efforts in nursing science continues to grow and be communicated, innovation can better occur through adoption of evidence-guided nursing care, - of benefit to the care of individuals world-wide.
The world of the working nurse is a challenging one, no matter what the role - clinician, nurse educator, researcher in varied specialties of practice and at varied levels of practice.
Opportunity is always present for discovery of new ways of practice, no matter in what area or specialty. Have you wanted to know more about the who, what, where, when or why regarding an aspect of your practice? Nursing research leads to knowing and discovery - finding answers to meaningful questions that can make a difference for clients and communities we serve.
Professional nursing has a bold and bright future as we continue to work together with other health professionals in maximizing our role to promote, maintain and restore health among varied populations.
