Synthesize an understanding of the research process through development of a proposal to address a nursing problem or focus area identified in nursing practice

For this discussion, you are asked to review the student learning outcomes for this course and discuss how you met these outcomes. The intention here is to provide you an opportunity to “reflect” on the learning achieved during this term and how you successfully met these learning outcomes. If you do not feel you successfully met the objective, discuss your plans to successfully complete the objective in the future.

Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:

Critically analyze current practice to formulate researchable problems.
Evaluate research as the basis for decision-making to improve outcomes through translation into evidence-based practice.
Synthesize an understanding of the research process through development of a proposal to address a nursing problem or focus area identified in nursing practice.
Investigate ethical issues related to the conduct of scientific research, including informed consent, data management, data analysis, and protection of human subjects.
Explore national and international initiatives and research priorities.
____________This is a communication part that the professor posted for our information. i will put it here so it might help you for this paper.

This week you will finalize and submit the research proposal. We also will review the importance of an evidence-based practice for the nurse in an advanced role and examine your success in meeting course objectives. As you reflect on the course objectives and the roots and application of research to practice consider your future role and how these concepts will apply to your practice. Understanding the elements of research will develop your skills in critiquing the research and translating it to clinical practice to improve clinical, educational, policy, and organizational outcomes.

As the last and final step in the research process, sharing the results of your research with your colleagues and the nursing community expands the practice knowledge on the selected topic. The three Ps offer the most common approaches to dissemination: publications, presentations, and posters.

The reflection question provides the opportunity to evaluate and reflect on the course outcomes.

Critically analyze current practice to formulate researchable problems.
Evaluate research as the basis for decision-making to improve outcomes through translation into evidence-based practice.
Synthesize an understanding of the research process through development of a proposal to address a nursing problem or focus area identified in nursing practice.
Investigate ethical issues related to the conduct of scientific research, including informed consent, data management, data analysis, and protection of human subjects.
Explore national and international initiatives and research priorities.
This course has built on your research knowledge and you have learned advanced research concepts to assist in developing an evidence-based practice. In addition, you had the opportunity to develop a novel research proposal specific to your role specialization that includes an intervention appropriate to nursing practice. During this course you learned the systematic process of problem solving and the manner in which nursing research validates and establishes an evidence-based practice.

Describe plan for data analysis for demographic variables (descriptive statistical tests).

Overview/Description:
The final project for NSG6101 consists of the development of a novel research proposal specific to your role specialization. The project must include an intervention appropriate to nursing practice and consistent with your MSN role option. An alternative to the above includes the selection of a specialty organization to focus research proposals based on the priorities of that organization. Examples of these organizations could include (but are not limited to): Sigma Theta Tau International, American Nurses’ Foundation, Oncology Nursing Society, Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, American Psychiatric Nursing Association, American Association of Critical Care Nurses, National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners, National League For Nursing, etc.

Throughout this course you have been developing various sections of the research proposal. This week you will assemble the final proposal (addressing faculty feedback).
