Topic 2 DQ 2 The three types of qualitative research are phenomenological, grounded theory, and ethnographic research. Compare the differences and similarities between two of the three types of qualitative studies and give an example of each. In the nursing field there are different types of research that are used to find the answer to problems. When there is a need to find the answers to questions, qualitative research may be used. When a nurse uses qualitative research, they may use a phenomenological, grounded theory or ethnographic research to find their answer. Out of these three different types of research, there lies some similarities as well as differences (Grove, S., Gray, J., Burns, N., 2015). The gathering of information for grounded theory and ethnographic research hold some similarities. For instance, if a nurse is doing qualitative research on the grieving process of individuals, for grounded theory, a nurse needs to understand and assess people during their grieving time before formulating a theory. Interviews can be given with both types of research

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
