About the Text
Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses: Appraisal and Application of Research, Third Edition is the definitive reference for transitioning research into nursing practice.

This unique organizational approach, combined with
updated case studies and ethical principles, allows the research process to be tangible and linked with strategies that promote advancement.

• Updated and expanded “Apply What You Have Learned” feature prompts students to find, read, and evaluate current research
