Nursing Research


This topic is best suited for ethnographic inquiry because it focuses on a specific culture and community. Through an ethnography, the researcher will be able to gain a deeper understanding of Hattian refugees as they experience the passage through observation, examination, interviewing, and other forms of data collection associated with this research design (Driessnack et al., 2007).


This topic is best suited for grounded theory research as it focuses on the social processes underlying human experiences (Driessnack et al., 2007). A grounded theory study would allow researchers to develop a conceptualization of what it means to live with AIDS that is grounded in actual observations of AIDS patients (Polit & Beck, 2017).


This topic would be best suited for phenomenological research because it centers on a phenomenon that is being lived and experienced by individuals (Driessnack et al., 2007). Phenomenological research seeks to understand an experience within the context of real-life and to explore various concepts, themes, and theories related to a particular phenomenon, in this case having a child with leukemia (Polit & Beck, 2017).


This topic is best suited for ethnographic research because rituals are an aspect of culture, and ethnography focuses on cultural examination. The topic would also require the researcher to be present in the nursing homes, and they can achieve this through immersion and fieldwork which are important parts of ethnography. Through an ethnography, the researchers can gain meaningful information that they would not be able to gain through simple interviews (Driessnack et al., 2007).


This topic would be best suited for grounded theory research because it seeks to understand the experiences of nurses when making decisions regarding do-not-resuscitate orders. A grounded theory study would enable researchers to analyze a full range of possible decision-making processes and gain a full understanding that can be used to guide future research and knowledge (Driessnack et al., 2007).
