Statistics for Nursing: A Practical Approach, 3rd Edition, (PDF) is designed in accordance with the Conversation Theory of Gordon Pask and presents the complicated topic of statistics in an understandable manner for entry-level nurses. The underlying principle of this design is to give students the opportunity to practice statistics while they learn statistics. The textbook accomplishes this through the inclusion of relevant clinical examples followed by end of chapter application exercises.
The 3rd Edition focuses on topics around Nursing Practice and was selected based on a review of the current statistical techniques used most frequently in nursing literature. The top 10 statistical techniques used throughout nursing are covered very clearly in the textbook and without any irrelevant complicating concepts.
The latest third edition has been updated with practice activities which enable students to apply the content they have learned. In addition, the authors have included new research articles to develop and reinforce literature critiquing skills. These new features provide more opportunities for nursing students to apply the concepts learned while the explanations are beneficial to clinical experts interested in further developing evidence-based skills.
This textbook meets the needs of both undergraduate nursing research students who need to learn how to critically analyze literature as well as graduate DNP students who must also be familiar with statistics for nursing in accordance with the rigor of the DNP program.
