Understanding Research for Nursing Students

THIS BOOK builds on the first edition by incorporating new developments, reviews and readers’ feedback and describes recently published nursing research to illustrate how nursing research is continually developing and the need for nurses to keep updated.

Each chapter is linked to the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards and the essential skills clusters for pre-registration nurse education. In addition, the activities are downloadable and can be accessed and added to at any time thus facilitating continuous professional development and promoting lifelong learning.

The text is accompanied by access to a companion website with access to downloadable PowerPoint slides for the lecturer. These slides accompany each chapter and can serve as a handout for students.

This is an action-orientated text, which seeks to raise awareness of uncertainty and encourages students to adopt a questioning approach to nursing practice thus normalising research as a core aspect of, and not an addition to, everyday practice.

On the whole this is a highly readable basic text with international appeal.
