Welcome to the Postgraduate Nursing Research Skills Guide, created by your Librarian in consultation with your Lecturer. It is designed to assist with your research needs as you progress through your postgraduate nursing studies and upskill to Advanced Nursing Practice. You might also like to refer to our Nursing, Midwifery and Evidence Based Practice library guides.
Make sure you do use the library and your librarians! My contact information and the general Library contact information are below on the right, and have a look at the video where I give you an introduction to the library resources you'll find most useful.
Wishing you the very best for your study ahead!
Lorraine Rose - Senior Client Services Librarian, Faculty of Science & Health
Advanced Practice: "Nurses practising at an advanced practice level incorporate professional leadership, education, research and support of systems into their practice. Their practice includes relevant expertise, critical thinking, complex decision-making, autonomous practice and is effective and safe. They work within a generalist or specialist context and they are responsible and accountable in managing people who have complex healthcare requirements." Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia (2019).
