Welcome to the Companion Website

This site is intended to enhance your use of Practical Statistics for Nursing Using SPSS by Herschel Knapp. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material. 

A friendly and approachable guide to real-world statistics, Practical Statistics for Nursing Using SPSS covers the most common statistical functions in nursing science using plain language. Students learn by doing, and an emphasis on this practical approach is seen throughout the book with each chapter structured to answer key questions: What statistical test should I use for this situation? How do I set up the data? How do I run the test? How do I interpret and document the results? Practice exercises include a vignette, codebook, and data sets ready for processing, enabling students to achieve mastery by carrying out actual statistical analyses.


We gratefully acknowledge Herschel Knapp for writing an excellent text and creating the materials on this site.
