"Written for nurses and nursing students, Nursing Research: A Qualitative Perspective, Fourth Edition defines qualitative research and presents information on the current state of this important field. Divided into three sections, Part One provides foundational content for understanding the qualitative research process; Part Two presents the more dominant methods, following each with an exemplar method; and Part Three, with the contributions of six new authors, discusses considerations essential to conducting qualitative research. The Fourth Edition emphasizes how critical qualitative research is to the nursing profession and outlines the numerous recent changes in the qualitative research field. Nursing Research: A Qualitative Perspective contains recent qualitative methods and examples, including phenomenology, ethnography, and case study methods. All the method and exemplar chapters have new authors and new material; in combination with the preceding editions the Fourth Edition offers students a wide variety of perspectives and examples of the particular methods through actual research studies."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE.
