Book Description

Empirical Nursing: The Art of Evidence-Based Care (PDF) aims to provide students and practicing nurses with the tools to better understand and engage in scientific arguments to back quality nursing and evidence-based practice.

The nature of nursing and its association with science remains an area of ongoing debate; controversy; and considerable confusion to both practitioners and students. For a science-based health discipline; it is something of absurdity that most nursing students have restricted exposure to scientific philosophy education; which is not dealt with in-depth in many modern university nursing programmes. This work pursues to remedy this: in providing material on modern scientific research methods; with particular emphasis on the context of practice; it offers an alternative theoretical iteration of holistic nursing as scientific inquiry.

The author is a zealous advocate for empirical and pragmatic approaches to nursing; and the ebook provides challenging ideas to support a new trend of critical-thinking in contemporary nursing; challenging postmodern dogma with up-to-date scientific critique. In doing so; this textbook involves readers with the art of progressive empirical client-centered care; suitable for the development of 21st-century holistic nursing practice.


“I highly endorse this textbook for anyone teaching the philosophy of nursing science at a graduate level. A considerate journey through the history of ideas about knowledge and truth claims in our discipline. And lots of food for lively dialogue!” — Dr. Sally Thorne; University of British Columbia; Canada

Broad in scope but thorough in detail; this book will benefit nursing students; researchers; and clinicians. The work is thorough; informed; provocative; and readable. I anticipate using it frequently when teaching; and I recommend it to under and post-graduate nurses of all stripes.” — Dr. Martin Lipscomb; University of Worcester

Recognizing the numerous and diverse pressures that nurses work under; Garrett has designed his ebook to serve as a textbook; a reference source; or a brief guide and primer to scientific thinking and applications in nursing. He explains the blend of science and art that makes up nursing to emphasize the value of creative scientific thinking for practical nursing issues and for understanding how to avoid the pitfalls of pseudoscience; non-science; and even bad science along the way. — Annotation © 2018 Ringgold Inc.
