Yes, Hoag nurses do research!
In order for Hoag nurses to have evidence-based practice, we need evidence. There’s no greater way to establish this evidence than by having hands-on experience. Doing nursing research at the bedside allows Hoag nurses to hypothesize and collect data that can lead to better patient care.
Hoag encourages and supports our nurses to get involved in research to build a solid base of evidence, which in turn builds stronger practice that benefit not only nursing but also our patients, their families and the inter-professional team.
To take a look at some of the projects Hoag Nurses do, please see the Nursing Research Council Spring 2018 Newsletter.
