Abstract

Nursing research has a tremendous influence on current and future professional nursing practice, thus rendering it an essential component of the educational process.

The application process, the various learning opportunities and responsibilities performed by the students, and the benefits and outcomes of the experience are described. The authors hope that by sharing their learning experiences, more students will be given similar opportunities using the strategies presented in this article.
