Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: This is the third edition of a reference dictionary for terminology related to nursing theory and nursing research. This is an excellent companion to all nursing research and nursing theory books. The previous edition was in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reference source for terms commonly found in nursing research and nursing theory.
Audience: The target audience includes nurses involved in research and nursing students at all academic levels.
Features: The authors have clear and accurate definitions of terms related to nursing research and nursing theory. Entries are in boldface type, underlining is used for emphasis, and terms within entries are in italics. This edition contains, for example, entries related to evidence-based practice and Internet research. Examples and references have been also been updated.
Assessment: This book should provide a very useful reference for the target audience. It is intended as a reference to supplement nursing research and theory books; it is not a text of research and theory.
