This section is designed for students who have not taken any courses in statistics. In the following three chapters, you will be introduced to the field of statistics and how it may be used in nursing. You will learn why a variety of statistical measures are used and how to define them. Developing a basic understanding of these measures early on in your nursing program will help you when reading literature and reports which include statistics.
