7.How do seasoned nurse researchers, years away from clinical practice, select meaningful research questions? (Select allthat apply.)a.They continue to conduct research in the same general areas in which they have previously conducted research, with one project leading into the next.b.They cannot do so, because they are not working bedside nurses.c.They establish working relationships with clinical nurses, sharing authorship of research publications.d.They collaborate with novice researchers who are closer to the clinical world.e.They use research methods that allow data collection through only observation.ANS:A, C, DInteractions with researchers and peers offer valuable opportunities for generating research problems. Experienced researchers serve as mentors and help novice researchers to identify research topics and formulate problems. This type of relationship could also be developed between an expert researcher and a nurse clinician. Since nursing research is critical to be designated as a Magnet facility, hospitals and healthcare systems employ nurse researchers for the purpose of guiding studies conducted by staff nurses. Building an evidence-based practice for nursing requires collaboration between nurse researchers and clinicians, as well as collaboration with researchers from other health-related disciplines. During data collection, study variables are measured through a variety of techniques, such as observation, interview, questionnaires, scales, and physiological measurement methods.DIF:Cognitive Level: SynthesisREF:Page 768.A master’s student does not know how to choose a research problem.
