Overview

This book is part of the Transforming Nursing Practice series, written specifically to support students on pre-registration nursing programmes.

Right from the start of their training it is crucial for nursing students to be able to evaluate and use current research to support their learning and reading for assignments. However, many books focus on how to do research, rather than how to understand and evaluate it.

Understanding Research for Nursing Students helps students to appreciate the nature of research by providing an entry level guide to the main research methodologies used in nursing. It puts research into context for student nurses, explaining how they need to use the skills of critiquing and evaluating research throughout their course and how this is linked to evidence-based practice. The book will help student nurses feel more confident in evaluating the research they come across in their reading.

Key Features:

Linked to the latest NMC Standards, Essential Skills Clusters and QAA descriptors

Scenarios and case studies demonstrate the importance of a good understanding of research in both nursing training and practice

Activities help to build confidence in understanding research methodologies

Editorial Reviews

Caroline E Gibson

This text is a useful companion for the students as they develop through the programme. The chapters are supported by useful references and web links for them to further develop their reading. It is very readable and students will be able to dip in and out in relation to their assignment, practice placement or issue of interest.

Paul Watson
A well written and well presented book that I believe will be of help to any student using it to assist in their understanding of research. This book is something completely different. It provides an excellent insight into research. It covers a broad range of research methodologies and methods and is a good introductory text regarding the key concepts involved in nursing research... I believe that this would be of great help to all nursing students looking at research. It wouldn’t be out of place in the lecturer’s bookcase and I would suggest that more seasoned professionals completing research could benefit from having a copy.
