I am in a class with an assignment to write about 5 key events of nursing research and there are about 30 listed in the text. I just want some ideas from someone else. Of course it all started with Florence Nightingale and after there seems to be so many that is hard to limit it to just 5.
Thanks to you all for your help. :)

I'm in a grad level research class - I would start with Florence, continue on with some of the research and development of nursing theories and finish with what's planned for the future. One of the most important things I would certainly mention is that fact that safety of participants in research projects is more assured nowadays after the bad publicity from the Tuskegee Study as well as issues with thalidomide use for pregnant women in the 40's and 50's. BTW - just curious - are you at University of Phoenix? I had to do this same assignment for them...judi
Yes I am at UOP. Thanks for the advice..............very helpful. It is just hard to limit to just 5. THANKS again. Do you plan to go into research post graduation? I have changed my mind at least 20 times. There is sooooo much out there to choose from.
No, I'm now in the MSN program at UofP in the Management and Leadership track (in fact that's what I'm suposed to be doing now - studying- lol). I'm thinking about unit-based educator or something like that...how about you?
Can you please tell me what is a good book or software questions I can use to study for the LPN test? I have taken the LPN test 3 time---I did not pass--Can you help pass this test please.
I am thinking about teaching or legal nursing. Guess I could do both. Well back to work and thanks for your help.
Saintanor - I'm very sorry you haven't passed the NCLEX-PN. However, I think if you post over in the student forum you will get more advice...good luck...judi

I also work in child health for many years and completed an MSc in 1997. At that time if someone had suggested 'Childrens accidents' as my research topic I would have laughted till I dropped. I dealth with the issue ad nausium, including frequent updates, training and campaignes etc. I thought I knew all there was to know about the subject and wanted to look at something new and exciting which I had no knowledge about.
At the time I was aware that the UK home accident statistics for children under 15 years were 2,554,546 injuries, 75% of the 4,546 fatalities were children under 5 years. HOWEVER.
While visiting Washington prior to, and no nearer a decision, I accidently came across the US 'home accident' statistics which mirrowed the UK rates.
What grabbed my attention was a fact cited in both the UK & USA.
"With the near eradication of most infectious diseases, epidemiology maps childhood accidents as probably the most under-recognised public health threat in most developed countries (Gordon, 1949: Wheatly 1949)
HALF A CENTURY WITH NO CHANGE!!!
So! researching the answer provided the most challenging and rewarding piece of work I have ever done.
Hope this example helps.
