[Extract] It is fitting that a chapter of this book considers the place of research in rural nursing. Research in health disciplines potentiates quality in healthcare delivery and can introduce new and effective evidence-based practices, consider the success and usefulness of health policies, or describe and comment on clients' or patients' experiences of particular phenomena. Initiating research may at times seem an overwhelming venture, and we hope this chapter will provide insights on how to start. The authors have used a research study the undertook in 2007 with three other colleagues on overseas trained nurses' experiences in rural settings as an exemplar to illustrate the approaches adopted to ask and answer questions of practice (Francis, Chapman, Doolan, Sellick & Barnett, 2008).
