The purpose of this article is to describe research of nursing science in Finland, particulary in the 1990' ies. Research have been done based on different scientific philosophies: positivism, fenomenology and citical theory. By using different approaches research has produced different knowledge and theories. Positivistic research has been commonly utilized in Finland. Since the middle of 1980's a fenomenology-hermeneutical approach has also been widely used. Research based on critical theory is seldom used. The purpose of nursing science is to produce knowledge which develop the science itself and which support nursing practice in developing the quality of care. The integration of theory and practice demands active input from researchers and nurses.
