Nurse clinicians have unique and complex knowledge needs that require knowledge developed from a nursing perspective. Research and Theory for Nursing Practice seeks manuscripts focused on research and theory issues relevant to improving nursing practice, education, and patient care. The articles strive to discuss knowledge development in its broadest sense, reflect research using a variety of methodological approaches, and may combine several methods and strategies in a single study. Because of the journal's international emphasis, we ask article contributors to address the implications of their studies for an international audience, if appropriate.
