Abstract

This manuscript features exemplars of nursing science that contribute to the development of health care transition practice models and evidence-based care. These research exemplars demonstrate the need for diverse investigative approaches coupled with clinical acumen and expertise in health care transition. The focus of describing nurse-led and nurse-contributory research and quality improvement efforts in this emerging field is offered to foster nursing involvement.Also, research efforts are not limited to the pediatric populations; research is needed for the provision of evidence-based careand monitoring of health and psychosocial outcomes of adults with childhood acquired chronic conditions.
