Abstract "Advanced Nursing Research: From Theory to Practice, Third Edition is the ideal graduate-level text for learning how to conduct nursing research, from development of an idea to the completion of the study. It focuses on the conduct of research with an emphasis on the connection to evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and the use of aggregate data. Despite its wide scope, this text is concise with little repetition. The outstanding feature is its reality-based approach to the actual conduct of research. Difficult, complex topics are addressed in a readable manner while the author uses her own experience and stories about conducting a wide range of research studies to engage students. Advanced Nursing Research: From Theory to Practice, Third Edition reflects modern practice and current thinking about research and integrates qualitative and quantitative methods, including emerging mixed methods"-- Provided by publisher
