Summary

Many challenges face the nursing community in expanding the empirical knowledge base that informs rural nursing practice. This collection develops creative and effective strategies in identifying relevant research and presents them within the context of the rural delivery system. The contributors, all noted nurse scientists, include discussions of the key problems they deal with within the context of recent reports on the state of rural health. This approach enables the reader to situate available nursing knowledge within the broader context of knowledge about each problem as a whole. While the primary examples are drawn from American contexts, a special chapter on global perspectives highlights analogous problems and issues that rural nursing research raises across countries, particularly the availability of resources.
