Research Literature, Design and Sampling
This assignment provides the opportunity for the student to continue
development of a MSN EBP scholarly project that started with the identification
of a nursing issue and PICOT/PICo question.
The focus of this assignment is to discuss the research literature
support, identify an appropriate research design approach and sampling method.
Students are to attach this completed assignment to their previous assignment
from Week 2 by removing the conclusion from the first assignment and add the
new information to the same document; using the headings indicated below. Students are to have revised the previous
assignment from Week 2 based on faculty feedback for this presentation.
enables the student to meet the following course outcome:
CO #4 Develop
knowledge related to research and evidence-based practice as a basis for designing
and critiquing research studies (PO 1, 2, 6, 9)
Due Date Sunday 11:59 PM MT at the end of Week Four
Possible: 145 points
Description of the Assignment: This continues the
development of a MSN EBP scholarly project by requiring the student to identify
the additional elements of the process. The
required elements are noted to be:
Assignment Revision: Refinement of
Nursing Issue Into Research (Week Two Assignment)Research Literature SupportResearch Approach/designSampling
Criteria for Content
1. Assignment Revision: The student is to include at the beginning of
this assignment the revisions made within the assignment for Week Two. Remove the conclusion from Week Two’s
assignment but save it for future use.
2. Research Literature Support: Using the references cited in the Research
Critique Table from Week Three Assignment, students discuss the applicable
elements of each research study article that directly supports the PICOT/PICo
question. An additional ten (10) references must be included
for this section in order to provide a useful review of the literature related
to the identified PICOT/PICo question or proposed solution. This section of the proposal is to be
presented as Research Literature Support.
3. Research Approach/Design: In this
section, the student will identify the research approach and design to be used in
order to obtain the data for answering the PICOT/PICo question. For this assignment, the research approach
is identified to be either quantitative or qualitative. The research design is the sub-categories of
each research approach. For example, the
quantitative approach has the design categories of experimental,
quasi-experimental, and nonexperimental.
The qualitative approach has the design categories of phenomenology, grounded
theory, epidemiological, and historical.
Required content includes:
Identification of the research approach as quantitative or qualitative
or mixed methodsIdentification of research design (i.e. quasi-experimental,
phenomenology, etc.) Description of the selected design (i.e. quasi-experimental,
phenomenology, etc.) Rationale for the selected design (i.e. quasi-experimental,
phenomenology, etc.)Identifies one advantage of the selected design (i.e. quasi-experimental,
phenomenology, etc.)Identifies one disadvantage of the selected design (i.e.
quasi-experimental, phenomenology, etc.)
Sampling method: In this section, the student will
identify the sampling method to be used in order to obtain the necessary
participants. Discussion of
participants’ rights is also included.
Required content includes:
Describe the target populationIdentify if the project is to use probability or nonprobability
samplingProvide a description of the
sampling procedure including sample sizeIdentify two advantages to the
selected sampling procedureIdentify one disadvantage to
the selected sampling procedureExplain how participant’s
rights will be protected (i.e. confidentiality, anonymity, protection from
