Our prof told us to really think about feasible topics that would mean something to nurses, not a medical research topic. Some of her suggestions were:
- Mandatory Flu shots for nurses = better patient outcomes
- Computer Charting & Documentation vs. old system
- Technology integration into nursing practice
- Breast Feeding education rates on maternity units & success rates
- Medication self administration
- Abuse of nurses by co-workers, doctors, patients & families
- Nursing mentorship & pre-ceptorship...."nurses eat their young"
- Value of basic nursing education in the real world
If you're in your third year, you must have already completed some clinical rotations somewhere. Think back to things you noticed on the floors.....ever wonder why, what about ____, have they ever tried _____, that equipment was a waste of money, etc.
So many topics to choose from. And you don't necessarily need to find research supporting your choice topic. You can find research that says everything but your topic of choice, and defend your research as filling in a "knowledge gap". Thats what we did for my project. We presented similar studies, but none actually researching our topic specifically.

I am also trying to decide on a research project for my MSN. I am interested in ethical and legal issues. Also nursing errors, nursing malpractice. Any ideas? Thanks for any input.

- Maternal alcohol use and effect of infant birth weight
- Alcohol use and effect on cardiac health. Difference between red and white wine?
- Alcohol use and breast cancer risk.
