Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As the nursing profession expands its unique scientific body of knowledge, it is essential that all professional nurses become capable of evaluating the scientific and clinical merits of this information generated by nursing research. Three developmental levels of research critique skills are delineated by the nurse reader's competencies: novice, intermediate, and advanced. Each developmental level is described in relation to five cognitive skills which underlie the proposed competencies: knowledge, comprehension, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis.
