Expanding Practice Through Research
To be viable and vital to quality patient care, nurses must continue to question their practice and support the development of new knowledge. MNA salutes and supports individuals who examine nursing practice through scientific research. Data supplied by exciting new research helps confirm the efficacy of nursing interventions for utilization in practice settings.
Nursing practice in Minnesota is enhanced by investigations conducted nationally and by our own colleagues here in the state. Your association has funded and continues to issue grants for projects that make a significant impact on our lives. Because of MNA and the American Nurses Association, we have evidence of the importance of nursing-based quality indicators and their relationship to patient outcomes.
