Overview

The fifth edition of Nursing Research is a comprehensive critical appraisal tool. This text examines the roles of research in nursing, the processes of qualitative and quantitative research, application and analysis of nursing research, and evidence based practice. Several interactive features such as research articles, critical thinking challenges, and critiquing criteria are presented as learning aids.

Features:
