(Solution) NR 505 Week 3: Elements of Quantitative Research: Design and Sampling


NR 505 Advanced Research Methods: Evidence-Based Practice


The focus of the Week 3 discussion is on two important elements of quantitative research studies- design and sampling. The approach or design, quantitative or qualitative, also applies to EBP projects. Both quantitative and qualitative have different designs or traditions that fall under these two broad categories.

Select a single-study quantitative research study article related to your specialty track and provide the permalink to the article. Then discuss each of the following items.

  • Identify whether the research study design is experimental, quasiexperimental, or nonexperimental. Provide the rationale for your answer.
  • Identify the appropriate representation for the research study article you selected using the nomenclature of X for intervention, O for observation and data collection, and R for random a assignment to a research study group.
  • Identify the type of sampling (probability nonprobability) that was used in the research study article you selected.
  • Identify one advantage and one disadvantage to the sampling type used (probability nonprobability).
  • Identify whether there was random assignment to research study groups in the research study article you have selected.
  • If random assignment to groups was used, how does this strengthen the research study design?


The research I chose is a study looking into health care access for undocumented migrants with communicable disease in Germany (Mylius, & Frewer, 2015). In Germany, undocumented immigrants do not have access to health care except people with sexually transmittable diseases or tuberculosis (Mylius & Frewer, 2015). Some of the treatments allowed by legislators to be given to migrants with communicable disease are free testing, screening, and treatment if determined to be needed …..please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $10
