Final Project Directions
The final project will be an analysis of a single Quantitative Experimental or Quasi Experimental designed research paper. Chapter 7 of your textbook explains what a Quantitative study is, its uses, and quantitative designs. The critique for the final project is due Monday of Week 6 at 11:55 pm central standard time. Review page 578 of your textbook to help you understand how to critique a research study.
The purpose of doing an in-depth analysis of a Quantitative experimental or quasi-experimental designed research article is to help you put into practice the content of the course and to illustrate why the hierarchy of evidence is focused on systematic reviews. Further, your having done such a review gives you insight into the sort of thinking and questioning that arises when you are reading research articles. It may also stimulate the critical thinking that is required of the nursing scholar.
This will be your analysis and you are required to use critical thinking in analyzing your selected article. If you agree or disagree with the author, support your reasoning. If you find any component of the study lacking or in need of improvement, support your position. Support your position with scholarly resources.
Your paper is to be 5 – 10 pages not counting the title page and the reference page. Must use at least four references (journal articles within the last five years)
See attached CLABSI Research Journal to critique.
