It has everything that is needed for my module
Very straightforward textbook for midwifery and nursing students. I recommend this to all my students
The nursing students I teach have a problem with research methods. They find it daunting and it prevents them from moving forward with their research. I use this book to create my lessons and also to set work for the students to do. It is a core text because it is easy to understand and provides lots of examples. I would not be without this book
