Why not Share Your Research?

There is at present no one resource of Irish Nursing Research and no way of you knowing what research your colleagues have undertaken or no way of your colleagues contacting you if you have undertaken research. We hope that nurse2nurse will become that resource of Irish Nursing Research and that nurses undertaking research will let us know. Nurse2Nurse welcomes the publication of original research from Irish Nurses and Midwives. This research can be of many types, primarily we are looking for research carried out during the course of your postgraduate education (as dissertation/thesis) or during your work as reports, reviews etc.
To publish an abstract of your research on nurse2nurse for further details please email: info@nurse2nurse.ie
