Peckover, Sue and Winterburn, Susan (2003) Teaching research to undergraduate community nursing students: reflections upon curriculum design. Nurse Education in Practice, 3 (2). pp. 104-111. ISSN 1471-5953

Despite the widespread inclusion of research education within nursing courses, there remain a number of tensions about the purpose, content, and philosophy underpinning such programmes. Of particular concern is the importance of establishing appropriate teaching and learning strategies in order to ensure that research education is enjoyable and effective. These issues are explored within this paper, and provide the background context for this discussion on the redesigning of a research module within an undergraduate programme for post-registration community nursing students. The paper highlights the rationale for undertaking this change, and discusses the educational frameworks, which were used in order to develop the programme. An initial evaluation suggests the redesigned curriculum is a positive development that has enhanced both the teaching and learning of research.
