Research Priorities in Nursing Education
The NLN Research Priorities in Nursing Education 2024-2027 continue to support nurse researchers who undertake research that contributes to the science of nursing education. The 2024-2027 priorities create a roadmap that connects the science of nursing education with the science of learning to develop an evidentiary base to guide educators in the preparation of nurses whose practice promotes and maintains wellness and care throughout the lifespan.
The 2024-2027 research priorities include:
- Build the science of nursing education through the generation and translation of innovative teaching and learning strategies
- Build a diverse nurse faculty capacity and enhance teaching practice
- Create teaching and learning environments that enhance the diversity, equity, and inclusivity for student learning and progression across all academic programs
The ultimate goal of these research endeavors is to develop the science of nursing education that will be used to prepare practitioners who deliver excellent health care. To accomplish this goal, robust research methodologies are needed that focus on
the generation and translation of evidence in the areas of innovative teaching and learning strategies, faculty workforce capacity and teaching practice, and student academic progression and success.
