Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides you with knowledge and skills to undertake nursing and midwifery research. The subject builds on the first year subject Research and Evidence in Health Sciences (HLT1RAE) and aligns with the Evidence Based Module in the Transition to Bachelor of Nursing (NSG2TBN) subject in Year 2. Through lectures, online activities, and workshops you will examine the history and philosophy of nursing and midwifery science, develop the skills to conduct a literature review for research purposes, explore the ethics of research and be able to apply the appropriate research design and methods to specific clinical and social issues. This will enable you to identify a nursing or midwifery issue of clinical or research importance, formulate a research question and justify the design and methods to be used. To achieve the learning outcomes of this subject you will be expected to complete a range of written and verbal assessments.
