The Scholarship of a Practice Discipline.

Riley, Joan M. EdD, RN; Omery, Anna DNSc, RN

Collapse Box


The article proposes that all nurses, as members of a discipline that is embedded in practice, share in the obligation to take part, in different capacities, in the generation of nursing scholarship. A model of scholarly inquiry that connects knowledge development and professional values to gather wisdom that benefits the health and well-being of society is advanced. Opportunity for all nurses to engage in a dialogue to create ownership of their scholarship is pivotal to its revisioning.
