Nursing research in Taiwan has evolved over the past 30 years. This review focused on refereed publications, research published in English, and specifically the 27 studies produced by doctorally prepared first authors. Most investigators used surveys and interviews. Designs were at the levels of description, association, and evaluation, not at the level of experiment. Problems are identified for this body of research. Further evolution of nursing science in Taiwan needs to incorporate the scientific and technologic resources of the world to develop nursing knowledge.
