Aim: To explore the development of nursing research and provide some examples of research relevant to clinical practice. Background: Nursing research developed in the last century as did nursing theories and models. However, nursing research does not have the same high profile as, for example, medical research and has tended to lag behind medical, and other forms of research, in terms of funding and in the apparent impact it has on clinical practice. Design: Discussion paper. Methods: Using a popular nursing model based on activities of daily living, nursing research that is relevant to these activities of daily living is explored and exemplified using a few key examples. Some of these examples are historical and some are current. Conclusion: Nursing research has developed greatly over the past century and continues to develop in the 21 st century. Nursing research is relevant to the needs of patients and has had an impact on clinical practice.
