Nursing Research

Why is nursing research important?

  • Results in new knowledge to improve health care
  • Supports clinical decisions made by nurses
  • Provides the foundation for best practices (evidence-based care)
  • Results in greater recognition of the importance of nursing care
  • Reinforces the identity of nursing as a distinct profession

York College nursing faculty and students are actively involved in research and evidence-based care projects.
