NU403 Evidence for Nursing Practice

Week 1 Discussion

DQ1 Ethical Principles

Group A: Beneficence and Respect for Human Dignity

Group B: Justice and Informed Consent

 

Use the designated group discussion board to work with your group and brainstorm your response (minimum 1–2 paragraphs) to the questions below. Once you have decided on your final answers, elect one member of your team to be the “responder,” and post the group’s answers to the discussion board on behalf of the entire team.

 

Define the ethical principle assigned to your group, what it includes, and how you might have seen it applied in the clinical setting. The discussion should be based on the information from the readings and other assignments.

 

Provide an example, drawn from your practice experience, of the ethical principle assigned to your group.

 

Read the other group’s definitions and examples, and engage them in the discussion thread titled “All Participants.”

 

Please refer to the Discussion Board Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.

 

The described expectations meet the passing level of 80%. Students are directed to review the Discussion Grading Rubric for criteria which exceed expectations.

 

DQ2 Research Paradigms

 

Group A: Positivist (Quantitative) Research Paradigm

 

Group B: Constructivist (Qualitative) Research Paradigm

 

In this assignment, each group will argue the merits of one of the two main types of research. Group A will take the Positivist (Quantitative) side and Group B will take the Constructivist (Qualitative) side.

 

Work with your group and use the designated discussion board to develop a bulleted list of points that support why your group’s paradigm is superior to the other paradigm. The points made should be based on information from the readings and other assignments. Elect one member of your team to be the “responder,” and post the group’s final list of bullet points to the discussion board on behalf of the entire team.

 

After your group posts, each individual member of the group is responsible for reading and responding to the points made by the other group. Select a few key points to refute. Participate actively in the debate as it unfolds.

After reading your assigned research article and thinking about areas of nursing research that you’d like to explore further, create a discussion thread that lists your potential topic and whether or not you’d like to approach the topic from a qualitative or quantitative perspective. The purpose of this discussion board is to not lock you into a specific area of research, but rather to allow your classmates to serve as brainstorming partners in developing your topic further. At the conclusion of the week, you will need to submit your proposed research topic to your instructor for final approval.
