QUEEN'S NURSING RESEARCH CLUB (QNRC)
Who are we?
The Queen’s Nursing Research Club (QNRC) was sparked by an idea to promote awareness and interest in research to undergraduate nursing students. Research is especially important in the nursing field; it is the foundation for evidence-informed practice and shapes our practice. However, undergraduate students often view research as a daunting, uninteresting field. QNRC hope to change this sentiment through engaging experiences and education.
Current QNRC plans include:
Guest speakers from Queen’s and elsewhere at our monthly club meetings
Research and mentorship opportunities to undergraduate students by connecting them with graduate students and professors currently conducting research
Our own research and literature reviews for first-hand experience
Nursing research podcasts
Whatever else you like - QNRC is a new club and open to your suggestions!
Involvement level in the club is up to you. With a low level of commitment, you can attend monthly meetings with distinguished guest speakers. Keen students seeking higher involvement can pursue mentorship opportunities and participate in facilitating the club’s own research.
The QNRC is one of the only clubs of its kind in Ontario and a great opportunity to become involved at Queen's and learn about nursing research. Come out and see what QNRC is all about!
