"There are a variety of nursing research texts available. Replacing the second edition, this book addresses new and emerging concepts in nursing research. It also offers support to faculty who select the book for their courses."

-- Timothy Legg, PhD, PsyD, MSN, PMHNP-BC (Legg Counseling and Consulting Services) Doody's Review


Various audiences would find this book particularly useful. Most notably, graduate-level nursing students who must complete a master's thesis or capstone project, doctoral dissertation, or doctoral project which requires familiarity with nursing research. Health systems with a nursing research committee may find the text a useful resource, as may existing nursing researchers who may be looking for an up-to-date reference text. The book will also be useful for others in allied health disciplines as it provides tools to help planning and conducting research in general.
