I got my first letter yesterday regarding the upcoming semester, which starts the first week of Sept (and there was much rejoicing!!!). The letter was from the professor who will be teaching my first Research module, and included a somewhat lengthy list of all the books I need to buy, which is much less exciting, given the current state of my bank account at the moment:
Nursing Research: Principles and Methods
An Introduction to Research for Midwives
Linking Research and Practice in Midwifery
Statistical Methods for Health Care Research
The letter also included my first assignment: I need to start to think about a research question which piques my interest and is something I’d like to potentially work on during the course. So, any suggestions for scintillating, controversial, saucy research topics for the coming semester? I’m going to have to mull this one over for awhile.
However, expensive books aside, midwifery school is on the horizon again. I can’t wait!
