Research counting as a science class?

  1. This summer, I will be conducting research, titled "Teaching Cardiovascular Content to Baccalaureate Nursing Students using a METI Human Patient Simulator". I will be analyzing both quantitative and qualitative statistics, and hopefully getting published in a journal. Since I will be applying the scientific method, i.e. creating hypotheses, etc, would this 3-credit research opportunity count as a science class? I would really appreciate responses from Nurse Anesthesia admission board members, and/or CRNA professors.

    Here is the link to the METI human patient simulator I will be studying:

    The anesthesia residents love this simulator!!!
