Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    There are different roles for nurses involved in research based on their level of education. Which best describes the role of the BSN-prepared nurse in research? 

    • A.

      Collaborates with other nurses to design research studies.

    • B.

      Critiques research studies and apply research to clinical practice.

    • C.

      Develops policy based on nursing research findings.

    • D.

      Assumes the role of primary investigator in an independent research study.

    Correct Answer
    B. Critiques research studies and apply research to clinical practice.
    Explanation
    The role of the BSN-prepared nurse in research is to critique research studies and apply the findings to clinical practice. This means that they analyze and evaluate research studies to determine their validity and relevance to nursing practice. They then take the research findings and apply them to their own clinical practice, using evidence-based practice to improve patient care. This role does not involve designing research studies, developing policy based on research findings, or assuming the role of primary investigator in an independent research study.

  • 2. 

    Part I- Multiple choices: (2.5 marks).      For each of the following multiple-choice questions choose the most appropriate answer: 
    1. There are many reasons that research is important to the nursing profession. What is the ultimate goal of nursing research

    • A.

      Promotes evidence-based practice in nursing.

    • B.

      Documents the cost-effectiveness of nursing care.

    • C.

      Ensures credibility of the nursing profession.

    • D.

      Provides accountability for the nursing profession.

    Correct Answer
    A. Promotes evidence-based practice in nursing.
    Explanation
    The ultimate goal of nursing research is to promote evidence-based practice in nursing. This means that research helps to identify and implement the most effective and efficient nursing interventions and practices, based on scientific evidence. By conducting research, nurses can gather data and evaluate the outcomes of different interventions, leading to improved patient care and better health outcomes. Evidence-based practice is crucial in ensuring that nursing care is based on the best available evidence, rather than relying solely on tradition or personal experience.

    When reading a journal research article, you first start reading the brief summary of the article placed at the beginning of the article. This is referred to as the: ​

    • A.

      Introduction

    • B.

      Conclusion.

    • C.

      Review of literature

    • D.

      Abstract.

    Correct Answer
    D. Abstract.
    Explanation
    When reading a journal research article, the brief summary of the article placed at the beginning is called the abstract. The abstract provides a concise overview of the study, including the research question, methodology, key findings, and conclusions. It serves as a quick reference for readers to determine if the article is relevant to their interests and worth reading in detail.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is generally considered the most valid means of developing the knowledge base of nursing?

    • A.

      Scientific research.

    • B.

      Evidence-based practice.

    • C.

      Qualitative research.

    • D.

      Outcomes research.

    Correct Answer
    A. Scientific research.
    Explanation
    Scientific research is generally considered the most valid means of developing the knowledge base of nursing. This is because scientific research follows a systematic and rigorous approach, using empirical evidence and experimentation to gather reliable and valid data. It involves conducting controlled studies, collecting and analyzing data, and drawing conclusions based on evidence. Scientific research helps to establish a strong foundation of knowledge in nursing by providing evidence-based findings that can guide clinical practice and improve patient outcomes. Evidence-based practice, qualitative research, and outcomes research are all important in nursing, but they are different approaches that may not always provide the same level of validity as scientific research.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    For which role in a research study is special research preparation necessary?

    • A.

      Identifier of researchable problems.

    • B.

      Elevator of research findings.

    • C.

      Patient advocates during studies.

    • D.

      Principal investigator for study

    Correct Answer
    D. Principal investigator for study
    Explanation
    The role of the principal investigator in a research study requires special research preparation because they are responsible for the overall design, conduct, and management of the study. They need to have a deep understanding of the research topic, methodology, and ethical considerations. They are also responsible for obtaining funding, recruiting participants, collecting and analyzing data, and ensuring compliance with regulations. Therefore, special research preparation is necessary for the principal investigator to effectively carry out their responsibilities in a research study.

    Part II: True and false: (2.5 marks).     Read the following statements carefully and write (T) if the statement true, and (F) if the statement false in the space providedDependent Variable is a measurable concept cause or influence a specific variable.           

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given answer is False. The dependent variable is not a measurable concept that causes or influences a specific variable. Instead, it is the variable that is being measured or observed in an experiment or study. It is the outcome or response variable that is expected to change as a result of manipulating the independent variable.

    Attending research presentations at professional conferences is one of the  intermediate role of nurses in Nursing research                   

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Attending research presentations at professional conferences is an intermediate role of nurses in nursing research. This suggests that nurses are actively involved in staying updated with the latest research findings and advancements in their field. By attending these presentations, nurses can gain valuable knowledge and insights that can enhance their practice and contribute to the improvement of patient care. It also indicates that nurses are recognized as important contributors to the field of nursing research and are encouraged to actively engage in the dissemination and application of research findings.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that the independent variable is a variable that confounds the relationship between two or more variables is incorrect. In fact, the independent variable is a variable that is manipulated or controlled by the researcher in order to observe its effect on the dependent variable. It is not meant to confound the relationship between variables, but rather to determine if there is a causal relationship between the independent and dependent variables.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Inductive reasoning is the process of developing general principles from specific observations or examples, rather than developing specific predictions from general principles. Therefore, the statement "is the process of developing specific predictions from general principles" is incorrect.

    Pilot study is conducted prior to data collection to verify the feasibility of the research study.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A pilot study is conducted prior to data collection to verify the feasibility of the research study. This means that before conducting the actual study, researchers conduct a smaller version of the study to test the research methods, procedures, and instruments. The pilot study helps identify any potential issues or challenges that may arise during the main study, allowing researchers to make necessary adjustments and improvements. Therefore, the statement is true.
