Reflect on your learning about Quantitative and Qualitative research; share two ways that helped you understand how they are different.

Purpose

This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

  • CO 2: Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (PO 4 & 8)
  • CO 4: Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and significance related to evidence-based practice. (PO 4 & 8)

Discussion

This week we learned how research designs are different and help us to objectively study nursing problems; the key is to decide which type of research and design will serve the purpose or intent to find a solution. After completing Week 4 readings and lesson, answer the following:

  • Reflect on your learning about Quantitative and Qualitative research; share two ways that helped you understand how they are different.
  • Choose one category of study design that you found interesting and describe; include what you learned about the design and how you believe it can help study nursing problems.
  • Refer back to your clinical nursing priority problem (Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) – Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)) and evidence you located for your week 3 assignment:
  • The nursing-evidenced practice (NEBP) committee has requested for you to make a recommendation to the team: Describe the type of research and the design that you believe would be the best way to study your problem. Discuss your rationale.
