NSG RSRCH W6 Discussion Begin your discussion by sharing your problem statement & research question. Next, discuss your sampling plan. In addition, discuss your research design. Consider the following as you craft your response. Sampling How will the sample be selected? What type of sampling method is used? Is it appropriate to the design? Does the sample reflect the population as identified in the problem or purpose statement? Is the sample size appropriate? Why or why not? To what population may the findings be generalized? What are the limitations in generalizability? Research design What type of design will be used? Does the design seem to flow from the proposed research problem, theoretical framework, literature review, & hypothesis? Problem Statement Heart Failure (HF) is a frequent cause of unintended hospital admissions and a costly condition (Glogowska et al., 2015). Research continues to show a disconnection and fragmentation of care after HF patients are discharged from the hospital (Glogowska et al., 2015). A Heart Failure Program can have a great impact on decreasing the number of reoccurring admissions by empowering people with knowledge and support to help manage chronic illness and increase compliance with their treatment plan in outpatient clinics that can be coordinated and managed by the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) (Danna, Garbee, & Kessler, 2014).

Interpretability consideration is especially important when persons other than the designers of the test are to interpret the results,” (Bhaskar & Manjuladevi, 2016). Bhaskar, S.

NSG RSRCH W6 Discussion RESPONSE POSTED : Hannah, your post was inspiring and I enjoy following along with your research trajectory, as our topics are very similar. After reading Dr. Karen’s inquiry regarding the optimal number of research participants that we can use to generalize, I found an article with a simple explanation, but additional information that everyone would find useful. Since an experimental design has various sequential steps that must flow and make sense to the researcher, it only makes sense to exercise great caution in the generalization of outcomes.
