I need support with this Nursing question so I can learn better.

During Foundations last semester we discussed nursing research very broadly while looking at evidence-based practice. This semester we are going to delve deeply into the subject of nursing research. Before we dig in I want to find out what you feel research, in general, has done to impact your life and our world. Give us an example (does not have to be nursing related) and explain why you think it is research and why it is impactful. Find some literature related to this research (Article, book, internet link, etc)? List it.
