NRS 433 Assignments and All Weeks Discussion

NRS 433 Topic 1 DQ 1 Identify two areas of nursing practice, which evidence-based practice has improved patient outcomes. State the study and its impact on patient care. How have these findings changed your nursing practice? Please support your response with a minimum of two supporting peer reviewed articles. NRS 433 Topic 1 DQ 2 What similarities and differences can you identify between the nursing process and the research process? Explain your answer. Please support your response with a peer reviewed article. 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 3 DQ 1 The three types of qualitative research are phenomenological, grounded theory, and ethnographic research. What are the differences and similarities between two of the three types of studies? NRS 433 Topic 3 DQ 2 Qualitative data has been described as voluminous and sometimes overwhelming to the researcher. In what ways could a researcher manage and organize the data? NRS 433 Topic 4 DQ 1


Extraneous variables may have an influence on the dependent variable. In what ways do researchers attempt to control extraneous variables? Support your answer with current literature. 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 evidencebased) 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.

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.

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. Prepare this assignment according to the 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 required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success

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 “EvidenceBased 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. 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 required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success

Week 4 Assignment CLC – Evidence-Based Practice Presentation This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment. Choose a nursing problem from your current practice setting and identify a possible solution to that problem.


Conduct a search of the literature related to this problem. Analyze and critically appraise evidence-based literature to support the solution to the identified problem. Incorporate a minimum of six peerreviewed articles. These can be the articles from the literature review you have already completed or a mixture of new and previously identified articles. You may also include guidelines from the National Guideline Clearinghouse, Joanna Briggs Institute, or a review from the Cochrane Database of Systematic Review. Include the following components in the presentation: Present the nursing practice problem with the PICOT question. Discuss your appraisal of the literature that addresses the problem. Present the proposed practice changes from an integration of the findings. While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and intext citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
