Week 3 Discussion Prompt What are some research designs that justify themselves in the field of nursing research? Choose one and explain why you chose it. Give an example of how this research design is used in your nursing discipline. A research design is used to “encompass multiple aspects of the research process including the sampling plan, data collection procedures, implementation strategies, and data analysis” (Schmidt & Brown, 2015, p. 149). Gaps in knowledge need to be filled as future research is conducted, as well as validating current research.

Each design requires specific studies and will acquire specific information that the design was intended to acquire. For example, longitudinal designs gather data about subjects at more than one point in time (Schmidt & Brown, 2015, p. 163).

    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.
