Abstract

Clinical nursing research can benefit from an approach that blends discovery oriented qualitative methods with the objective, numerically based quantitative methods. This paper describes current approaches to clinical research in either the quantitative or qualitative paradigm. The strengths and weaknesses of each of these approaches are discussed. A rationale for methodological pluralism--the blending of the two methods--to understand clinical phenomena is presented.
