The first edition of Nursing Research in Action was published in 1990. Since its publication, nurse education has changed dramatically, with Project 2000 commencing, and most nurse education linked with colleges, further, and higher education. The second edition of this successful book is taking this into consideration. It now addresses both the needs of Project 2000 students and undergraduate degree students. It offers more details on how to do qualitative research. The revised edition offers more information on each of the topics in each of the chapters. The activities and exercises remain while some new ones are added. A wider range of research sources are referred to. This new edition is more comprehensive and appropriate to an even wider market.
