Technology Integration in Research - Online Course

The wave of technology use in nursing is ever flowing. New technologies emerge: Some are accepted, implemented and widely used, and others are not. Strategies for technology use in research have been slow to shift. Researchers continue to use technology for data analytics but do not possess the skills set to take a deep dive into designing better research using technology.


This course informs nurses how technology can benefit their research. It reviews methods and devices available to nurses, in order to assist in creating and implementing better, more efficient research, which can be translated into practice.

Course Learning Outcomes

  • Implement concepts of the SAMR model as a framework for technology integration
  • Critically evaluate one way in which technology can benefit research design
  • Conceptualize the use of technology within the learners’ research to improve data
  • Describe one tangible change that can be implemented in research practice for nurses
