Abstract: Prelicensure nursing student exposure to undergraduate research education may have a significant effect on their research skills and use of evidence-based practice. There are potential benefits to introducing Q methodology to prelicensure nursing research students. Utilizing Q methodology principles and techniques, a class on Q methodology was integrated into a prelicensure nursing research and evidence-based practice course. The interactive classroom format and active student engagement in the step-by-step mock study were positive aspects of the class.
