Although using research in nursing has become increasingly valued, some incorrectly believe that only the findings of quantitative research can be applied. While there are distinct differences between qualitative and quantitative research, both paradigms have an important role to play in nursing. This article explores the topic of research utilization and discusses qualitative research and its evaluation and use. The discussion, and examples from qualitative research, emphasize how useful qualitative research can be to advanced practice nurses.
