This innovative text is designed to teach undergraduate students to critically read and apply research findings in evidence-based clinical practice. Rather than belaboring the research process itself, MAKING A DIFFERENCE WITH NURSING RESEARCH focuses on guiding students step-by-step through finding, analyzing, and applying relevant research to solve the specific problems they may encounter in providing patient care. It presents a clear basic discussion of quantitative and qualitative research processes, offers practical examples applying key concepts, provides detailed strategies for searching the literature, introduces the structured PICOT process for reading and dissecting articles; and offers a chapter-length PICOT case study. Throughout, end-of-chapter exercises and web-based activities provide many opportunities for hands-on practice.

First, I am a sold out believer in Christ Jesus. My son is twenty-five now and I feel blessed to be his mom. I live in beautiful Northern California, but I was born in the warm sunny state of Florida in 1963. My youth was spent in the South... Florida, Texas, and Oklahoma. I miss the loud rumble of thunder storms, lightning bolting across the sky, and family. I wish I could, but I can't say that I was ever prepared in any way to have become a writer. I just fell in love with reading and writing at a late stage in my life. But the good thing about indie culture is that it let's, and even encourages people like me to just go for it! I found out that wanting to make my story better, gave me vision and desire to study so that I can learn my chosen craft. I am as excited about learning as I am about the actual writing. So right now I am happy being a mom, reading good books in quiet cozy places and writing my second novel. I love to hear the sound of waves crashing on the shore, raindrops on a tin roof and a happy babies laughter. My days start with gratitude, hot coffee with lots of milk, and prayer. For every girl and guy who reads (The Sleeper) I just want to say, "Thank you!" With all my love and prayers for each and every one of you. It took me more than a few times to get this story closer to where I wanted it to be. If you read it before it got some "a million" rewrites sorry. I know it was an ugly hot mess in process! There were also many cover changes while I was learning as well. Yikes! Too may cover changes! My deepest desire for this story is that it open some windows and shed some spiritual light in for many of us Christians that have experienced and even been intrigued by the vampire phenomenon. Sincerely, Anne Young.
