Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials
"The authors state that they created this book to fill a specific need. DNP students may struggle with data management, since their projects are not research, but quality improvement, and this book covers the subject well. I recommend it for DNP students for use during their capstone projects."
-- Michalene King, PhD, RN, CNE (Duquesne University School of Nursing) Doody's Review
The authors wrote the book for DNP students after they were unsuccessful in finding a suitable one on the subject. Both authors teach in a DNP program; one specializes in data management and the other is the director of a DNP program.
