Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


Based on the author's extensive experience in working with nursing faculty and students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and in teaching seminars and workshops throughout the United States, this informal guide can help nurses communicate their research to colleagues in education, research, and practice. The three main parts of the book discuss the three types of writing related to the proposal; the thesis, dissertation, or research report; and the article reporting research. This handbook is for students, doctoral candidates, educators, researchers, and practitioners who want help in writing about their nursing research.
