  • 1. NURSING RESEARCHPrepared by:Adrian R. Adriano, R.N., R.M., M.A.N.
  • 2. RESEARCH From an etymological context, re-search simply mean means “to search again”  cerchier - meaning to seek or to search  re – repetition A systematic, empirical, controlled and critical investigation of a hypothetical proposition related to natural phenomenon (Kerlinger)
  • 3. RESEARCH An honest, scientific investigation undertaken for the purpose of discovering new facts which will contribute to the present body of knowledge and can lead to effective solution of existing problems (Philippine Nurses Association Research Committee)
  • 4. PURPOSES OF RESEARCH Description  Research aims at describing a phenomenon that relates to the nursing profession.  It also observes, defines and documents nursing situation inquiry
  • 5. PURPOSES OF RESEARCH Explanatory  Research seeks clarification of a prevailing situation to answer questions that ask “why” a phenomenon occurred. “Why does this happen?”
  • 6. PURPOSES OF RESEARCH Exploration  Research explores the phenomenon by observing and recording events and situations occurring in that phenomenon.  It answers “what” questions on the phenomenon searching for illustrative examples in order to become familiar with the phenomenon and understand it more precisely and accurately
  • 7. PURPOSES OF RESEARCH Experimentation  Research anticipates possible psychological and physiological reactions to nursing interventions.  Research provides a basis for decisions by eliminating barriers and sourcing ways and strategies that would bring about effective client care outcomes
