This week’s reading introduced the idea of identifying nursing research, reviewing the literature, and integrating theory into research.

This could be something at work, something you are interested in, or something you feel is lacking in well-executed research.

Rationale: Integrating nursing theories into well-executed research adds to the body of nursing knowledge and allows nursing to continue to grow as an evidence-based discipline. Additionally, this should help you work through some ideas and begin to narrow focus on a problem you may wish to research.
