Problem: Nursing Shortages (Workforce Management)

 

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s media presentation and consider Dr. Pothoff’s comments on sampling.
  • Recall the research problem, question, and hypothesis you developed in Week 2’s Discussion. With this in mind, ask yourself: What population is most relevant, and accessible, for exploring my research problem?
  • Consider how you could reach this target population to gather data. What are some challenges you might encounter?
  • Determine a data collection approach for your target population. Develop an informed rationale for selecting that approach.

By Day 3

Post a cohesive response that addresses the following questions:

  • What are the researchable populations in your area of practice? Which would be most appropriate for use in your research study?
  • What are the challenges of obtaining a sample from this population? How could you address those challenges?
  • What approach would you use to collect data from the sample? Provide a rationale for the approach you choose based on this week’s Learning Resources.
