Nursing scholars appropriating new methods: the use of discourse analysis in scholarly nursing journals 1996–2003

Nursing scholars appropriate the analysis of discourse. ‘Discourse analysis’ covers a wide spectrum of approaches to analysing meaning and language and there is no widely accepted definition of either a concept or an analysis of discourse. A sample of the discourse analyses indexed in the CINAHL database was analysed in order to identify what notions of discourse and discourse analysis are preferred by nursing scholars. The results showed that nursing scholars prefer approaches to discourse that resemble mainstream qualitative research avoiding social life and interaction. Explanations for these findings are briefly outlined.
