this is the refernce:
Polit, D. F., & Beck, C. T. (2010). Essentials of nursing research: Appraising evidence for nursing practice (7th ed.). Philadelphia: Wolters Kluwer Health, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins


If I am using a direct qoute is this citation correct?   According to APA formate?

See example:

 "A paradigm is a world view, a general perspective on the complexities of the real world" (Polit, 2010, p. 10).

I cannot tell you if the citation is correct without knowing which format you are using.  


I encourage you to check the resources at Purdue's Online Writing Lab.  Here is the link to APA and citation formatting.  For MLA go back to the main page.
