NATIONAL NURSING RESEARCH STRATEGY FOR SOUTH AFRICA
Keywords: Research strategy, NNRAC, NRF, HEI
AbstractFUNDISA has been actively promoting nursing research since its inception, but more rigorously over the last five years as the nursing profession moves into Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) where research is a priority. A National Nursing Research Advisory Committee (NNRAC) was elected to draft the National Research Strategy for South Africa for the relevant stakeholders involved: Universities, Nursing Schools, Public and Private Nursing Colleges, Health Services and Professional Societies. The aim of this research strategy is to enhance collaborative rigorous scientific enquiry that builds a significant body of knowledge in order to improve the health of the people of South Africa. The objective of this strategy will be achieved by building a research culture in nursing, building nursing research capacity and building research programmes across the country. It is envisaged that the research strategy will contribute significantly to directing future nursing research development in South Africa.
