You are asked to review the student learning outcomes for this course and discuss how you met these outcomes in this discussion. The goal here is to give you a chance to “reflect” on the learning you’ve done this term and how you’ve met these learning outcomes. If you do not believe you met the objective successfully, talk about how you intend to meet the objective in the future.

After finishing this course, the student should be able to:

Analyze current practice critically in order to develop researchable problems.
Evaluate research as a decision-making basis in order to improve outcomes through translation into evidence-based practice.
Develop a proposal to address a nursing problem or focus area identified in nursing practice to synthesize an understanding of the research process.
Investigate ethical issues related to scientific research, such as informed consent, data management, data analysis, and human subject protection.
Investigate national and international initiatives as well as research priorities.
