Current Volume: Volume 4 (2017) Special Issue: Nursing Research Project Posters

In Nursing 363, Principles of Practice: Research as Foundation for Practice, students are introduced to scientific inquiry which forms the basis for nursing practice and theory. Their research posters address multiple community health issues such as illicit drug abuse in homeless adolescents, nutritional habits of school-aged children, and the perceived threat of nitrate-contaminated water in a rural community.
