The field of Nursing focuses on the care of individuals, families, and communities to allow them to reach, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life. The Nursing Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Nursing scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Nursing research intersects with other disciplines including medicine, biology, chemistry, and women’s & gender issues. The Nursing Research Network (NursingRN) is applicable for researchers as well as practitioners and comprises a diverse body of literature focusing on nursing education, specialties of care in both the hospital and non-hospital settings, interdepartmental care, administrative aspects of nursing, and medico-legal features. SSRN helps fosters research and collaboration with the aim of hosting research that can improve public health and nursing care around the world.
