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.
Step 4: Save and submit your assignment.
When you have completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy of the paper to your instructor.
