Background & Aims: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, nursing researchers have conducted various studies on different dimensions of this disease. Therefore, recognizing and evaluating research and scientific activities is very necessary for research planning and policy making. The present study was conducted to investigate the topics of approved nursing research projects on the subject of coronavirus in Iran.
Materials & Methods: This study is a scoping review based on the five steps proposed by Arksey and O'Malley (2005), including identifying and determining research questions, identifying relevant studies, selecting studies, tabulating data, summarizing, and reporting. The results were conducted between 2019 and 2021.
Results: The results showed that the largest number of approved research projects were related to the patients with Corona and their families, as well as nurses and health care providers. In this field, the studies were mostly focused on psychological issues such as anxiety, death, stress, and depression. In the field of patient and family, it is necessary to investigate the development of nursing care models and theories as well as the relevance of nursing theories and their effect on nursing care of patients with covid-19 so that, we could be able to improve the quality of care by applying nursing theories in the nursing process of caring for patients with Covid-19. In the field of nurses and care providers, it is necessary to conduct more studies on nurses' willingness to provide care for patients with infectious diseases, and examine nurses’ competence in caring for patients with infectious diseases, including Covid-19. Fewer studies have been conducted in the field of nursing students and faculty members, as well as healthcare service provider systems. In this area, most research was related to the quality of virtual education, the strengths and weaknesses of this educational method, and the faculty members’ ability to use them. E-learning may affect students' health and academic outcomes; hence further research is needed. In the field of healthcare service provider systems, it is necessary to conduct more research on human resource management. It is also necessary to design innovative strategic models to provide human resources.
Conclusion: The results of the present research can help nursing researchers, professors and faculty members, managers and policy makers of the nursing profession in identifying more and faster research topics needed and in line with research priorities, and therefore lead to the increase of the growing body of knowledge about the Corona issue.
