Qualitative research is a way of describing an event in its context and is useful for investigating complex, new or relatively unexplored areas. A central tenet of the qualitative approach is that researchers cannot be truly neutral or detached from data generation and analysis. Qualitative research values the experience of the research participant and can offer valuable insight into the settings and situations in which nurses work.
