Question Description

NUR400 4.1

In this assignment, you will write a paper that analyzes a scenario and explains the purpose of hypotheses and research questions.

Step 1: Read the following scenario.

You are a nurse on 5 West who has concerns about visiting hours in the Critical Care Unit. The unit currently has a visiting-hours policy that allows patients to rest and the staff to provide care in an environment that protects patient privacy and modesty. However, many nurses now feel that family presence improves patient outcomes. You and other nurses on your unit have noted that vital signs are improved and patients are more responsive when family is present. You are considering whether to use a quantitative or qualitative study to research this topic.

Step 2: Consider the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of hypotheses and research questions?
  • Why is it important to develop workable hypotheses and research questions in conducting research?
  • What type of research—qualitative or quantitative—would be most conducive to the scenario in Step 1? Why?
  • Which would be more appropriate given the scenario in Step 1: the development of a hypothesis or a research question or both? Why?

Step 3: Write a two-four page paper.

Write a paper that describes the purpose of hypotheses and research questions. Articulate the importance of developing workable hypotheses and research questions in conducting research. Based on the provided scenario, describe whether a qualitative or quantitative research study would be most appropriate and why. Explain whether, and why, you would develop a hypothesis or a central research question for this scenario.

Construct your paper and cite any sources in APA format.


NUR400 7.1

In this assignment, you will create a presentation that reflects on your proposed problem of interest and evaluates sampling techniques that would create a meaningful study pertaining to this problem.

Step 1: Reflect on your proposed research question or problem of interest.

Step 2: Consider different sampling techniques.

Think about how you would compare and contrast the following sampling techniques:

  • Simple Random Sample
  • Stratified Random Sample
  • Cluster Random Sample
  • Systematic Random Sample

Consider which of these sampling techniques you might employ for your research study. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

Step 3: Consider who your audience might be if you were to deliver your presentation in person.

  • What would you want them to know about this topic?
  • What would you expect them to already know?

Step 4: Create a 10- to 12-slide presentation that that evaluates and briefly summarizes the various sampling techniques listed in Step 2. Describe the sampling technique(s) you will use in your research and explain how your choice of sampling technique(s) will help you to create a meaningful study cohort.

Address the following questions in your presentation:

  • Who/what will your proposed sample consist of?
  • How will subjects be recruited?
  • Are there any special considerations about your population of interest that might pose barriers to obtaining a sample?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the sampling method(s) you plan to use?
  • What potentials for error and bias related to sampling exist?

Step 5: Review your presentation to ensure that you are using best practices for formatting slides.

  • Include a title screen and summary screen.
  • Avoid making slides too text heavy or dense with text. As a guideline, limit text on each slide to five bullet points of six words each.
  • If using graphics, be sure that they are professional, reinforce your points, and are not used merely for decoration.
  • Be sure to add what you would say if delivering the presentation to a live audience in the notes section of each slide.

Make sure that the format of your presentation is professional and visually attractive. Cite any sources in APA format.
