ANA Research Toolkit

The American Nurses Association has developed a Research Toolkit that can be used in a multitude of ways.  It can help nurses provide evidence-based care that promotes quality health outcomes for individuals, families, communities and health care systems. It can also assist in using research to shape health policy at the bedside, within an organization, and at the local, state and national level.  The toolkit provides access to numerous resources to support nurses in practice, nurses interested in or engaged in research, nurse educators and students.  ANA members can access a research repository with reviews of research articles.
