The world’s most widely used nursing research textbook, Essentials of Nursing Research, Tenth Edition equips students with everything they need to confidently apply research to nursing practice. AJN award-winning  authors Denise Polit and Cheryl Beck clarify the language of nursing  research and instill a practical understanding of nursing research  fundamentals and the research process for both quantitative and  qualitative studies — including design principles; sampling and data  collection; criteria for assessing data quality; appraising the quality,  rigor, and trustworthiness of studies; and approaches to understand the  statistical results.

This updated edition incorporates the  latest clinical insights and approaches to research to familiarize  students with increasingly important considerations in today’s nursing  practice, including the involvement of patients and stakeholders in  translating research evidence to local settings; the appraisal of not  only the rigor of research designs and methods but also the relevance  and applicability of practice-based evidence; and the effective use of  research in local quality improvement (QI) projects.
