There are 4 main types of quantitative research that are used in the field of nursing. The differences between these types relate to the extent the variables are controlled by the researcher: 1. Descriptive design- describes a phenomenon in detail; data collection is observational in nature and variables are not controlled (Schmidt & Brown, 2019) 2. Correlational design- explores and observes relationships among variables using statistical analyses; variables are not controlled; doesn’t look for cause and effect relationship (Schmidt & Brown, 2019) 3. Quasi-Experimental design/Casual-Comparative- seeks to establish cause and effect relationship between 2 or more variables; independent variable is not manipulated; control groups are identified and exposed to the variable; results are compared with results from groups not exposed to the variable (Schmidt & Brown, 2019). 4. Experimental designs/True experimentation- scientific method is used to establish cause

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
