[Extract] This chapter introduces you to basic concepts and processes of research in nursing. Research has assumed a position of significance in Australian nursing, and there continues to be advances in knowledge development and the sophistication of research approaches (McKenna et al 2012).

The concept of research in nursing is not new in the Western world (D'Antonio 1997, Mulhall 1995). In Britain, Florence Nightingale was active in research in nursing in the nineteenth century, though it was not until 1940 that further progress occurred and it was 1963 before the first government-funded post to facilitate research in nursing was established in the Ministry of Health (Mulhall 1995).
