This book has been the leading text for nurse researchers for many years. The third edition, which has been extensively revised and updated, continues to equip nurses with the knowledge and skills to critique, carry-out and disseminate research. It remains an invaluable resource for nurses at all stages of their research journey.
This 3rd edition book is a handy companion to the nursing students who are uninitiated in research work. It is very comprehensive and for a beginner the detailed contents of each chapter and the cross reference chapter indicated with each explanation serves as a quick reference guide for those using the book. The common features of a summary at end of each chapter with additional websites provides value added information.
