The final submission is basically the combination of the other four phases into one paper. This paper will need to be corrected with all of the feedback provided from previous papers. Include on this paper a conclusion and learning experiences from the essentials and from the class.
Phase 1-Planning (Due by WEEK 4):
Phase 1 is the planning stage of a research project; students are to prepare a 4-5 page paper identifying a specific topic that you would like to investigates and relates to transitional nursing. You will provide a brief introduction to the situation by utilizing published nursing research articles to support your statement. This paper will also include
1- Introduction to the Problem
2- Clearly Identify the Problem
3- Significance of the problem to Nursing
4- Purpose of the research
5- Research questions
6- Master’s Essentials that aligned with your topic
Phase 2-Design (Due by WEEK 6)
Students will continue their research topic, in this paper students will perform a brief literature review on the topic (Will need at least 5 support articles) and provide the desired methodology for the project. Paper will be approximately 5-6 pages.
1- Brief literature review
2- Methodology and design of the study (Be as detailed as possible)
3- Sampling methodology
4- Necessary tools
5- Any algorithms or flow maps created
Phase 3-Implementation (Due by WEEK 9)
Phase 3 of the research project is the implementation phase. The implementation phase will be written in the future state as we will not be implementing the actual project. This phase focuses on providing steps by steps instructions on how the program will be implemented, a table describing the time frame of the project, if there is any budget that needs to be taking into account, and any resources or statistically tools required. The length of this paper should be around 5-6 pages.
Phase 4-Results (Due by WEEK 11)
Phase 4 is all about results, this part of the paper will be based on the hypothetical analysis. Meaning since we will not be actually implementing the process, the results described will be based on whatever the students would like the research results to be. You will need to provide results for all of the statistical tools mentioned and provide descriptive data (demographics of the population, different descriptive data points, etc.). Make sure to also include research limitations to improve for future studies. Approximately 6 pages.
