The major thesis of the two volumes in Advancing Nursing Science Through Research is that the processes of theorizing and research must be linked and formally explicated in order to advance scientific knowledge. They address advanced research methods and modes of inquiry to test or generate theories.
As a graduate-level theory text in nursing science or as a quick, accurate brush-up for practitioners, this first volume is the ideal resource. Tightly-edited and highly accessible, it offers an excellent overview of major advances in theory and research.
