Introduction

This is the first of three linked dissertation units in the Bachelor of Nursing (Honours). In this unit, students embark on their research work under the guidance of a supervisor or supervisors. The type of work undertaken in this unit will reflect the specific research project, but there is an expectation that students will clarify their research question and chosen methods / methodology and obtain ethics approval if appropriate. The work undertaken in CNA418 contributes to the development of the research project that will be reported in the thesis submitted for examination in CNA474 Dissertation Part 3
