3. Level III evidence, controlled trials are not randomized. The scheduled and non-scheduled interventions were not randomized either.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.   Descriptive correlational, predictive correlational, and cohort studies 4. Goh, M. L., Ang, E. N. K., Hong-Gu H., Chan, Y., & Vehviläinen-Julkunen, K. (2018). Patient satisfaction is linked to nursing workload in a Singapore hospital

Now that you have completed the Research Hierarchy activity, you can see how each type of research fits in a particular hierarchy. This is important because it provides information about each type of research study: its validity, rigor, soundness, reliability, and so on. With this context in mind, you will now examine the articles provided here to give you practice in determining which article goes with each level of research hierarchy.

Overview

Here is a list of nursing journal articles that are available to you through the Regis Library. These articles are from a wide range of study types; from randomized controlled trials (RCT) to expert opinions.

Assignment Instructions

  • Review all of the articles in preparation for this assignment. Using this Research Hierarchy Template (Word), you will list one journal article for each of the seven levels of the research hierarchy pyramid (you will not need to use all articles to complete the hierarchy; you will use a total of seven of the articles). Articles will not be used in more than a single hierarchy level.
  • After you have determined one journal article that corresponds with each of the levels of the hierarchy, provide a one to two sentence statement for each article to explain your rationale for selecting it and assigning it to that hierarchical level. You will write one to two sentences, justifying your selection, using the Research Hierarchy document that you submit.

Please refer to the Hierarchy Assignment Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.
