TheMost Appropriate Researchable Population
Theaim of this study is to evaluate the nature and timing of the supportthat is required to enable new nurses when transitioning into nursingpractice. As such, the most appropriate researchable population isnurses, both new in the field and those who are experienced.Experienced nurses should be considered to enable the researchercollect accurate, adequate, and reliable information on the study.The selection criterion is that the participants must have practicednursing for over three years. Data collection should be done throughquestionnaires and interviews.
Theresearch team should then select a small group of nurses for thepurpose of implementing a case study. According to Hollowayand Galvin (2016), selection of population sample determines thesuccess of the study. However,implementation of the case study is subject to evaluation on itsappropriateness and intense assessment by the research team. Thefinal decision on the implementation is made by the stakeholderssince they are the managers of the team tasked with carrying out thestudy. As such, they would be expected to determine whether or notthe identified population is appropriate for the implementation ofthe longitudinal study.
Thereare various challenges that could be faced in obtaining a sample fromthis population, as Rees(2013) notes.The first is lack of diversity in the participants selected. Thepopulation would mainly consist of nurses. On the contrary, thefindings of the study would be more reliable if participants from themanagement sector are included as they have vast knowledge on thesetting. They would provide crucial information on how newlygraduated nurses are assisted during their transition into thepractical field and how it assists them to adjust and fit into theworking environment.
Anotherchallenge is that the data obtained is ideally self-reported,subjecting it to bias. Bias is common when the research team fails toevaluate the data collected using interviews and questionnaires toeliminate any bias before the data is presented to other people.According to Rees(2013), researchers in the nursing field face the challenge ofeliminating bias due to its impact on their findings.Any contradiction between the existing data and data that iscollected leads to a huge controversy. It is also caused by failureto measure all the data collected and eliminating any possible sourceof bias.
Additionally,it is difficult to use different approaches to collect data. Some ofthe methods could be too complicated while others are not suitable.For instance, using emails for data collection might not be effectiveas some of the participants could ignore them. Additionally, the datacollected could be limited and fail to present crucial facts on thestudy. This signals the need for these challenges to be addresses.
Howto Address These Challenges
Thesechallenges could be addressed through the implementation of EssentialI-IX. According to Essential I,the selected population should be equipped with adequate liberaleducation on the study (Zorek& Raehl, 2013).This would eliminate bias.
Essential II: aportion of the population should have skills in leadership andmanagement to enable researchers to collect data from managers whohave been in the field for long (Zorek& Raehl, 2013).This would improve flexibility.
Essential III:fresh graduate nurses should be assisted in their transition intoprofessional practicing.
Essential IV: technologyshould be incorporated in data collection. Digital voice recordersshould be used for the interviews to be transcribed and decodedlater.
Essential V: nursingpracticing requires adequate financing, and so does research in thefield (Zorek& Raehl, 2013).The research team should be accorded adequate finances to cover allthe sections of their study.
Essential VI: thereshould be cooperation in nursing. Cooperation would be promotedbetween new and experienced nurses to ensure transition of new nursesis successful and effective.
Essential VII: thedata collected would be used in promoting the health of the patientpopulation. The study would focus on how new nurses can be helped toacquire skills that ensure good health among the patients (Chadwick& Gallagher, 2013).
Essential VIII: the study should observe inherent and professional values such asautonomy, altruism, human dignity, social justice, and integrity. Therights of the new nurses should be protected.
Essential IX: thenew nurses should be ready to cooperate and practice with patients indifferent healthcare environments. This would improve theirexperience and skills.
