Abstract

ALVES, Leila Maria Marchi; NOGUEIRA, Maria Suely; GODOY, Simone de  and  CARNIO, Evelin Capellari. Basic research in nursing. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2004, vol.12, n.1, pp. 122-127. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692004000100017.

The integration between basic science and research in the field of nursing is an emerging subject and expanding in many countries. However, in Brazil, researchers have shown little interest in exploring this line of research, in spite of the numerous benefits it may bring to nursing care practice. In this article, by means of a bibliographic review, we will focus on the importance of basic research and take into consideration our own experiences and expectations as nursing researchers, emphasizing the possibility of integrating fundamental and experimental science with nursing research and practice.

Keywords : nursing; research.
