NR439 Week 1 Discussion

Week 1: Role of Research and the Importance of the Searchable Clinical Question

8484 unread replies.119119 replies.

This week's graded discussion topic relates to the following Course Outcome (CO).

  • CO5 Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (POs 7 and 8)

The practice of nursing is deeply rooted in nursing knowledge, and nursing knowledge is generated and disseminated through reading, using, and creating nursing research. Professional nurses rely on research findings to inform their practice decisions; they use critical thinking to apply research directly to specific patient care situations. The research process allows nurses to ask and answer questions systematically that will ensure that decisions are based on sound science and rigorous inquiry. Nursing research helps nurses in a variety of settings answer questions about patient care, education, and administration.

As you contemplate your role in the research process, read the following article.

Indian Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism, 19,S76–S77. doi:10.4103/2230-8210.155409. https://chamberlainuniversity.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=102354944&site=eds-live (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

  1. Choose one case study, and formulate one searchable, clinical question in the PICO(T) format. There are several potential questions that could be asked.
  2. Identify whether the focus of your question is assessment, etiology, treatment, or prognosis.

NR439 Week 2 Discussion 

Week 2: Search for Literature and Levels of Evidence

101101 unread replies.118118 replies.

This week's graded discussion topic relates to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

  • CO2 Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (POs 4 and 8)
  1. Reflect on your practice, and identify a significant nursing clinical issue or change project that you would like to search for evidence in online sources. Formulate searchable, clinical questions in the PICO(T) format for your nursing clinical issue.
  2. Next, review the guidelines for the PICOT Assignment due Week 3. Use your PICOT elements to search for one report of a single, original study that has been published within the last 5 years from the CCN Library that is relevant to your nursing clinical issue.
  3. Briefly describe how it is relevant to your nursing clinical issue. Remember to give a complete reference to the study.











NR439 Week 3 Discussion 

Week 3: Research Problems, Designs, and Sample

104104 unread replies.111111 replies.

This week's graded discussion topic relates to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

  • CO2 Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (POs 4 and 8)
  • CO4 Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and lab significance related to evidence-based practice. (POs 4 and 8)

This week, we will discuss the research design and sample for your nursing clinical issue. The research design flows from the research question and outlines the plan for the study that will answer the research question. The design identifies the major components of the study. It is important to remember that there is no one best design for a research study.

  1. After you review the designs, describe which research design you would expect to find when searching for evidence relevant to your own research question from Week 2. Why? Explain your answer.
  2. The most common sampling method is the convenience sample; therefore, many of the studies that you find for evidence use this sampling method. What are the implications for using a convenience sample on the way you interpret and use the findings?
