This user-friendly and relevant text on nursing research demystifies the research process by relating the importance and significance of research to the real world of nursing by using a step-by-step approach that engages students in the research process. Easy-to-follow guidelines for reading and critically appraising quantitative and qualitative research projects are included. Authors compare qualitative and quantitative approaches and present a balanced view of the advantages, strengths and limitations of each approach. Case studies and sample projects are presented in "nursing researchers at work" boxes to illustrate key approaches, methods and findings. A statistics primer covers basic statistical material required to complete a quantitative study - the notation is simple and accessible to the numerically challenged student.
