NRS 433 Topic 2 DQ 1

 

The theoretical foundations of qualitative and quantitative methods are very different, but many researchers believe both methods should be used in the research study to increase validity and reliability. What advantages or disadvantages do you see in using both types of methods in a nursing study? Support your answer with current evidence-based literature.
NRS 433 Topic 2 DQ 2

 

 

Nursing research is used to study a dilemma or a problem in nursing. Examine a problem you have seen in nursing. Why should it be studied? Justify your rationale.

NRS 433 Topic 4 DQ 2

 

Using established guidelines, critique the data collection, analysis, and implications of a published quantitative study.
NRS 433 Topic 5 DQ 1
According to the textbook, nurses in various settings are adopting a research-based (or evidence-based) practice that incorporates research findings into their decisions and interaction with clients. How do you see this being applied in your workplace?
NRS 433 Topic 5 DQ 2
The research problem can be developed from many sources. What is a source of nursing research? Identify a potential research study example from that source.

 

NRS 433 Week 1 Assignment

 

Literature Search
Conduct a literature search to locate
research articles focused on a practice
problem of interest. This literature
search should include both quantitative
and qualitative peer research articles
to support your practice problem or
issue of interest in 350-750 words.
Identify six peer research articles
which will be utilized through the
next 5 weeks as reference sources.
Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath
each reference include the article’s
abstract. The completed assignment
should have a title page and a
reference list with abstracts.
Suggestions for locating qualitative
and quantitative research articles from
credible sources:
Use a library database such as CINAHL
Complete for your search.
Using the advanced search page check
the box beside “Research Article” in
the “Limit Your Results” section.
When setting up the search you can
type your topic in the top box, then
add quantitative or qualitative as a
search term in one of the lower boxes.
Research articles often are described
as qualitative or quantitative.
To narrow/broaden your search, remove
the words qualitative and quantitative
and include words that narrow or
broaden your main topic. For example:
Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis.
To determine what research design
was used, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The
author will provide a description of
data collection using qualitative or
quantitative methods.
Prepare this assignment according to
the APA guidelines found in the APA
Style Guide, located in the Student
Success Center. An abstract is not
required.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please
review the rubric prior to beginning
the assignment to become familiar
with the expectations for successful
completion.
You are not required to submit this
assignment to Turnitin.

 

NRS 433 Week 2 Assignment
Research Summary and Ethical
Considerations
Select either the qualitative or
quantitative study method for this
assignment. The study method should
connect to the practice problem of
interest identified in Topic 1. This
could be one of the previously selected
articles from your literature review or
a new peer-reviewed article.
In an essay of 1000-1,250 words,
summarize the study, explain the ways
in which the findings might be used
in nursing practice, and address any
ethical considerations associated with
the conduct of the study.
Refer to the resource “Research Summary
and Ethical Considerations Guidelines”
for suggested headings for your paper.

Week 3 Assignment
Benchmark – Research Critique and
PICOT Statement Rough Draft
This is a two-part rough draft
assignment consisting of a Research
Critique and PICOT Statement. The
assignment should be 1,500-1,750 words.
The final draft will be submitted in
Topic 5.
Research Critique
Prepare a critical analysis of a
qualitative and a quantitative study
focusing on the problem statement,
study purpose, research question,
literature review, and theoretical
framework. This can be one of the
selected articles from your previous
literature review or a new peerreviewed
article.
The completed analysis should connect
to your identified practice problem of
interest.
Refer to “Research Critique
Guidelines.” Questions under each
heading should be addressed as a
narrative in the structure of a formal
paper.
PICOT Statement
The PICOT statement will provide a
framework for your capstone project
(the project students must complete
during their final course in the RN-BSN
program of study).
Read the PICOT article “Evidence-
Based Practice, Step by Step: Asking
the Clinical Question: A Key Step
in Evidence-Based Practice” along
with the “Chapter 18: Using Research
in Evidence-Based Nursing Practice”
PowerPoint resource.
The first step of the EBP process
is to develop a question from the
practice problem you drafted in Topic
1. Start with the patient and identify
the clinical problems or issues that
arise from clinical care. Consider the
research critique as you draft your
PICOT statement.
Following the PICOT format, write a
PICOT statement in an area of interest
to you, which is applicable to your
proposed capstone project. Prepare this assignment according to
the guidelines found in the APA Style
Guide, located in the Student Success
Center. An abstract is not required.
