Patricia L Munhall

Written for nurses and nursing students, Nursing Research: A Qualitative Perspective, Fifth 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
    Part Three discusses considerations essential to conducting qualitative research

The Fifth Edition has been thoroughly updated with 10 brand new chapters. Within the text, new exemplar research chapters include the various qualitative methods, phenomenology, ethnography, grounded theory, case study, historical, narrative inquiry, and action research. This text continues to retain the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods in the same study while relying on the best qualitative researchers in the field to form an inclusive representation of qualitative research, including philosophical underpinnings, methods, exemplars, ethics, evaluation, and combining mixed methods.
