The ability to communicate in writing is an essential skill, particularly for nurses at the graduate level. This is a bestselling, comprehensive, and widely used resource on writing for nurse clinicians, faculty, researchers, and graduate students. It covers all kinds of writing that beginning and experienced nurse-authors may be required or choose to undertake: journal articles, book chapters, and preparing manuscripts from coursework. Brimming with helpful examples, the book takes the reader step-by-step through the entire process of writing, from the generation of an idea through searching the nursing literature, preparing an outline, writing and revising a draft, and submitting the finished product for publication.
In addition to being extensively updated, the Third Edition features a completely new chapter on writing articles regarding quality improvement studies and new information about writing for open access publications. It is replete with practical examples of the type of writing required for successful DNP capstone projects. Additionally, new writing samples have been added that illustrate how to present multiple types of research and writing for varying types of journals and other venues. The book describes how to select an appropriate journal and gear the writing for the intended audience, submit a manuscript, and respond to reviewers. It provides strategies for searching bibliographic databases, analyzing and synthesizing the literature, and writing a literature review. Information is also included on developing manuscripts from theses and dissertations, writing a paper with multiple authors, and when and how to include tables or figures. Ethical considerations are addressed as well.
