Undertaking a research project: guidance for nursing students

Dinah Gould Professor in applied health, City Community and Health Sciences, City University, London

This article provides practical help to nursing students undertaking a research project as part of their course requirements. Most undergraduate courses no longer require empirical data collection. Increasingly, students are required to undertake a literature review. Readers are taken through the processes leading to successful project completion from initial framing of a workable research question to compiling the final document.
