RESEARCH DESIGNS 2 Research Designs: A Critical Element for a Credible Nursing Practice There is a great need for nursing in the current and future society. With regard to this, it is essential to adhere to research in the field in order to make new discoveries while improving the current procedures and systems. Nursing research aids nurses in determining the most effective best practices hence improving patient care.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
