History of Nursing Research

Despite a tradition dating back to Florence Nightingale, nursing research emerged as a systematic study and assessment of nursing issues only in the last 50 years. Nursing education's shift from hospital training schools to academic settings made possible, even mandated, the development of nursing as a scientific discipline. Through research, nursing challenged its image as a tradition-bound, hands-on vocation and built a distinctive base of nursing knowledge.
