Hi students, my name is Dr. Susan Thomas, course leader for NR439 and I would like to welcome you to a short tutorial reviewing your week five assignment.

Your week 5 assignment is located in your week 5 module. If you click on it here.  The purpose for completing this assignment is to help you demonstrate your understanding of the different ways that we can conduct research to study our nursing problems, the many types of designs, and some various ways we can choose our samples, as well as how research helps us to create a credible evidence based practice.

During our week 4 and 5, we have learned there are two types of research which we know we can choose either a quantitative approach to study a problem or a qualitative approach.  These are two ways we can study our nursing problems. Once we have chosen our approach, then we can select differing designs based from either one of those approaches.  We also learned during week 5 about samples which we use to specifically select who will participate in our study.  We learned there are differing sampling strategies which we can use with our quantitative or qualitative research.  I want you to know I designed this learning activity using our AACN standards of professional practice which requires a BSN to value evidenced-base practice and have knowledge of the fundamental elements of research, process, and design.

The assignment directions and rubric are located under your week five assignment. It is essential that you read over the directions as these have key instructions and helpful hints to complete the scholarly paper. I encourage you to read all the directions first, and then read over your grading rubric which is located beneath the assignment directions. Be sure that you are using your grading rubric to complete the required assignment. Your instructor will use the grading rubric to evaluate each of the criteria you will be completing.  Try to use and complete the assignment using the first column which will help you capture all available points for that criteria.

For this assignment, you can use your APA template which is located in your resources tab. If you click on the resources tab, you will notice there are APA sources and program resources to help you with APA.  The template that is located in this area.  It has guidelines to use when completing the APA formatting required for this assignment.

This is a turn it in assignment.  Be sure you are using your own words to write about the grading criteria. The directions has a guideline that has the grading criteria elements that you can use as you explore and discuss with you own words. Be sure you are using two or more scholarly resources as this is required.  Textbooks are not allowed.  Textbooks of any kind cannot be used.  Use your Chamberlain Library to locate current evidence to support your writing.  No more than two direct quotes can be used; this is a scholarly paper which should consist of your words that demonstrates your knowledge of what you have learned about our content.  If you use a resource, you must cite it in your paper indicating the sentence that you used; listing the resource at the end without citing does not demonstrate integration of the resource.  Also, be sure you are fully citing the resource; otherwise it will not be considered a scholarly source if your instructor can not determine the source.

The week 5 assignment is worth 225 points. I want to point out that you need to use scholarly writing, spelling, grammar, and complete sentences.  Be sure you are using your own words to write about the criteria to demonstrate your understanding and use in-text APA citations for any sentences that you use from resources.  You can find APA resources as well as writing assistance in your resources tab and your Chamberlain library.

I hope you enjoy this extremely valuable learning activity!  It was created to help support your knowledge of how to utilize and support an evidence-based practice as a BSN.  As always, please contact your NR439 instructor if you have any questions.
