Abstract

Knowledge of statistics is essential for nurses at all degree levels and is needed to read and understand published research, make evidence-based decisions, and critically evaluate research and evaluation findings. Data are needed to properly quantify statistical preparedness for nurse graduates and workplace demands for specific types of statistics knowledge. This work describes results of a pilot study of surveyed master's degree-prepared nurses. Findings revealed several gaps between statistics education and workplace demands.
