Now in its Third Edition, this packed, user-friendly text systemically provides a sound foundation for understanding a wide range of qualitative research methodologies, including triangulation. It approaches nursing education, administration, and practice and gives step-by-step details to instruct students on how to implement each approach. Features include emphasis of ethical considerations and methodological triangulation, instrument development and software usage; critiquing guidelines and questions to ask when evaluating aspects of published research; and tables of public research that offer resources for further reading. New to this edition are two chapters on writing a qualitative research proposal, and designing management strategies; expanded discussion on applications; and additional content on triangulation and ethical issues and standards.
