This book is a practical, user friendly text designed specifically for those undertaking dissertations or research projects in the final year of nursing programmes. Research forms a central part of nursing degrees, and final year dissertations are often based on literature searching and writing research project proposals. This book addresses the need for a clear and practical text to guide students from the initial stage of deciding on a research topic, completing a literature review and designing their research, through to choosing data collection and analysis methods, and finally writing up their project proposal or dissertation.
