Why would this design be the most appropriate for answering the research questions? Conversely, why would quantitative method design not be appropriate?

High turnover rates among nurses in nursing homes and what can be done to lower these high rates. Qualitative Research Plan.I have attached paper that is Quantitative Research Plan. This one is just like that one but must be the Qualitative approach. (The same topic as paper attached.)
Outline:
qualitative research plan you should include:

An introduction.
A purpose statement.
Viable research question(s).
A written research plan that addresses the following questions:

What are your research questions? To what extent can you test them? How would you justify the viability of your questions?
Why would this design be the most appropriate for answering the research questions? Conversely, why would quantitative method design not be appropriate?
What approach would you select for this study (ethnography, grounded theory, case study, phenomenology, narrative)? Why is that approach the most appropriate one for answering the research questions?
What would be your role as the researcher?
What is your target population? How would you identify and recruit participants? What factors would contribute to determining appropriate sample size? (You do not need to calculate sample size for the assignment).
What instruments might you use, if appropriate for your plan?
What data collection procedures might you use? Why would those be the most appropriate methods to use? How would that data help answer your research question(s)?
How would you ensure quality and reliability of data?
What are threats to validity? How might you mitigate them?
What are the ethical considerations related to your plan?

Do you think the outcome of the data would be different if the researchers used the population that is available on your unit?

The purpose of this paper is to encourage the use of recent nursing research in the obstetric field and identify how it can be utilized in the clinical area. Any subject matter in maternity nursing: antepartum, labor and delivery, nursery, postpartum home care, fetal monitoring, birthing centers, nurse-midwifery, etc. are available for research.

Choose a research study that has been done in your area of interest. They can be found in Nursing Research, JOGNN, MCN, AJN or any other nursing journal. But must be a nursing journal no exceptions! Analyze the results and see if they have been applied in the clinical area you have been assigned to in this course.

In this paper, you will be graded by these standards:

? What was the purpose of the study and the population that was used?

? What was the outcome of the data collected?

? How is the data utilized on your clinical unit?

? How could it be better applied or, if not at all, how could you implement it?

? Do you think the outcome of the data would be different if the researchers used the population that is available on your unit?

Each of the answers is worth 2 points for a total score of 10. This paper is worth 10% of your grade. It is due on December 10, 2012 at the start of class. Please attach a copy of the article to the paper.

2: Conducting Health research

The graded Activity should be at least one page and include a reference. Answer the following questions:

· What are some examples of activities that lead to improved health?

· Why do people engage in unhealthy behaviors even when they have knowledge of how to stay healthy?

· Do you see unhealthy behaviors affecting your life, or the lives of those around you, in any way?

· How do you plan on changing these behaviors to live a healthier lifestyle?

2: Conducting Health research

are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

What are the similarities/differences and how have the options for assistance changed over time?

For this assignment, write 3 to 5 pages (APA Format) comparing and contrasting stress reactions of (a) WWI and WWII combat with (b) modern combat research.

Please describe each and then answer: What are the similarities/differences and how have the options for assistance changed over time?

Please provide at least THREE cited examples from THREE different readings. You can use readings on the Internet only if they come from peer-reviewed or government sources.

In the early days, becoming a nurse was seen as a voluntary service rather than professional kind of job.

Career in Nursing (E.R. Nurse)
In the early days, becoming a nurse was seen as a voluntary service rather than professional kind of job. Their main job was to make beds, take care of the patients and even sometimes check on their temperatures. However, their roles have changed greatly today. Registered nurses are the more common today being the largest number of health care professionals and their work is highly appreciated in the whole of this nation. Nurses are always in the frontline in fighting for the well being of the patients (Educational Portal). They cannot be compared to other health professions. As an Emergency Room (ER) nurse, one becomes a part of a team that responds to emergency cases in a health centre. Nurses in an emergency room need to provide fast and accurate care to patients in an emergency situation (Educational Portal). This research paper will focus on the qualities and the qualifications that an ER nurse has to have in order to make it the nursing career which can be quite fulfilling if done for the right reasons.

Paper is to be 7 pages which includes a works cited page, no title page, Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double-spaced, 1″ margins, include header with last name and page number in header. Section headings are not necessary. Should have 5 sources with 4 coming from different types of media.
