Statistics for Nursing: A Practical Approach, Second Edition 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 text accomplishes this through the inclusion of relevant clinical examples followed by end of chapter application exercises.The Second 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 ten statistical techniques used throughout nursing are covered very clearly in the text and without any irrelevant complicating concepts.This text 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.
