Would your problem identified in the Unit 2 discussion question lend itself to a qualitative or
quantitative design? What level of evidence (research design) would best address the problem?
Explain your answer.
Our problem identified in the Unit 2 discussion question was the Advancement in
Technology: Impact on Nurse Stress Levels. This question I believe is a mixture of both
qualitative and quantitative design. The reason I feel both will best address our problem is
because in qualitative design data is collected through participant observation and interviews

articles that use a qualitative design to figure if nurses are becoming stressed from the
advancements in technology. We will also need to utilize quantitative design to get statistical
and numerical comparisons (Qualitative vs Quantitative Data | Simply Psychology). Is the
percentage of nurses who are stressed new nurses or older nurses? These are the types of
questions and results we will want to find out through our research. As our book states,
“Quantitative designs are appropriate when the results must reveal the true relationship
