Inquiry is the foundation of nursing practice. Inquiry projects impact safety, quality measures, and patient/staff outcomes. As the profession with closest proximity to the patient, nurses must not only participate in but also spearhead inquiry work. This article addresses the knowledge gap that continues to exist among clinical nurses regarding the three forms of nursing inquiry and provides recommendations for nursing professional development practitioners to support clinical nurses' understanding and participation in these endeavors.
