Nursing Education Research in the South.
Huggins, Kenneth, Ed.
This publication presents papers and abstracts of research from a project to stimulate nursing education research in the South. The five papers in section 1 discuss some major developments in nursing education research, including (1) past and future of research in the south, (2) conducting clinical instruction of health science students and evaluating student competencies and teacher effectiveness, (3) response to the second paper from a nursing viewpoint, (4) clinical laboratory in nursing education, and (5) factors affecting faculty development for women in higher education. The second section contains abstracts of 17 collaborative research studies conducted during the project. This research is related to four nursing education issues: clinical performance evaluation, curriculum, laboratory and clinical teaching strategies, and faculty development. Each study is summarized, and findings and/or conclusions are outlined. The three papers in section 3 offer three views of collaborative research. One presents results from surveys of researchers participating in the project regarding process and impact of participation. The other two papers are a dean's perspective of collaborative research by faculty and a faculty point of view. Section 4 contains three papers emphasizing the importance of publishing research results. The two papers in the final section focus on finding and obtaining research funding for nurses and nursing's impact on federal legislation. (YLB)
