Abstract

Science gives people feeling that impractical experiment is a by-product of science that is just written theories and wasting of money. In the following chapter, we would like to demonstrate how experiments can practically support our clinical practice and our daily lives, also the evidence-based outcomes can be the foundation of our professional nursing system. We will explain the purpose of quantitative research and the method of dominant usage of experimental quantitative research, discussing the pros and cons of the method, and finally demonstrate the implication to nursing in HK evidenced by historical revolution and phenomenon. In conclusion, positive and valuable attitudes towards experimental research can be enhanced, and nurses can be encouraged to be actively contributed in our future research activities.
