Abstract

Aim: It was conducted to examine postgraduate theses regarding animal experiments research in the field of nursing in Turkey. Materials-Methods: The data in this research was searched between 10 March and 20 March 2024 in the advanced search section of the “Higher Education Institution National Thesis Database” using the keywords “nursing”, “animal”, and “research”. Results: It was determined that 72% of the postgraduate theses included in the study were doctoral theses, 36% were done in the Department of Internal Medicine Nursing, 85.72% used rats, and 72% were about wound healing. Conclusion: In our country, it has been observed that the number of doctoral theses regarding animal experiments research in the field of nursing is approximately 3 times more than master’s level theses. With the developing age, the need for experimental research increases to meet the expectations of the nursing profession and obtain evidence-based results. In the literature review, it was seen that more animal experiments were conducted in the Department of Internal Medicine. In this context, research on animal experiments from other nursing departments and the results obtained can guide evidence-based nursing practices.
