Need Help in My Research Proposal

  1. Can anyone help me in concretizing my research proposal which is entitled" Problems Encountered By Filipino Nurses Abroad After the June 2006 NLE Leakage Scandal" ? Basically, I want to determine if there is an after effect of the June 2006 nursing licensure examination for Filipino nurses working abroad. And if yes, what is it (are those)? Recently I have read an article written by a Filipino nurse that the leakage issue is not sensationalized much in the foreign countries as it is here in the Philippines. Now, I think I have to decide right here if such study significant in itself. I need guide in framing the following:
    • Problem Statements - below are the statement of the problem indicative from my basic assumptions:
    1. Is there any difference in the attitude of foreign nurses towards Filipino nurses before and after the June 2006 Philippine nursing licensure examination?
    2. Is there any difference in the attitude and perception of foreign patients towards the filipino nurses and their service quality?
    - based from above statements, do you think it is feasible and worth pursuing study?

    • Significance of the Study - who will be benifitted and how?
    • Scope and Limitation - how can i delimit my study so that it can be finished in less than a year's time and who shall be my reposndents and should I target a certain place or population?
    • Methodology - what method of data gathering is appropriate? Is it advisable to make a fill-in questionnaire form online for ease and convenience? What about it's issue of security and reliability? I might be questioned about that? How will i know that the one sending me the data is really the right respondent? Pls help.
    • Research Design - what should be the appropriate statistical tool?
    • Review of Related Literature - how can i proceed with my RRL? What should I include in here and where can I possibly find such materials on the web?
    I would really really appreciate your positive and prompt response. thank you.

    I will have everything capitalized!

    * Problem Statements - below are the statement of the problem indicative from my basic assumptions:

    1. Is there any difference in the attitude of foreign nurses towards Filipino nurses before and after the June 2006 Philippine nursing licensure examination?
    2. Is there any difference in the attitude and perception of foreign patients towards the filipino nurses and their service quality? (BOTH ARE GOOD QUESTIONS BUT EITHER ONE OR THE OTHER I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF TWO PROBLEM STATEMENTS IN ONE PIECE OF RESEARCH. PERSONALLY I WOULD ONLY GO WITH ONE OF THOSE PROBLEM STATEMENT BOTH ARE GOOD PROBLEM STATEMENTS BOTH ARE GOOD BECAUSE THEY AFFECT PATIENT CARE (NUMBER 1 HAVE TO THINK MORE ABSTRACT)

    - based from above statements, do you think it is feasible and worth pursuing study? DEFINENTLY WORTH PERSUING PERSONALLY AS A PROFESSIONAL (STUDENT OF COURSE) I LIKE TO KNOW HOW THE LICENSURE AFFECTS NURSES AND PATIENTS ATTITUDES

    * Significance of the Study - #1 BENEFITS PHILIPINO NURSES AND REGULAR NURSES (THEIR PERCEPTION) #2 PATIENTS HOW THEY ARE AFFECTED BY NURSES
    * Scope and Limitation - how can i delimit my study so that it can be finished in less than a year's time and who shall be my reposndents and should I target a certain place or population? LESS THAN A YEAR WELL I WOULD GET A GOOD PROPOSAL AND PRESENT IT TO THE HOSPITAL I THINK #2 WOULD BE A BETTER IDEA AND GET SOME DATA (WILL EXPLAIN MORE IN THE NEXT BULLET) LESS THAN A YEAR USE A SMALL SAMPLE IN MAYBE IN A LITTLE AREA LIKE A COUNTY! ALSO LESS THAN A YEAR JUST DO ONE OF THE RESEARCH TOPICS JUST #1 OR #2
    * Methodology - what method of data gathering is appropriate? Is it advisable to make a fill-in questionnaire form online for ease and convenience? What about it's issue of security and reliability? I might be questioned about that? How will i know that the one sending me the data is really the right respondent? Pls help. METHOD GATHERING DATA APPROPRIATE- MY QUESTION IS QUANTITATIVE OR QUALITATIVE BOTH METHODS WOULD BE APPROPRITE. IF THERE IS NOT MUCH RESEARCH ON THE TOPIC WELL RIGHT RESPONDANT YOU CAN ALWAYS WRITE THAT IN YOUR DISCUSSION BUT WHO WOULD FILL OUT A SURVEY AND SPEND THEIR TIME TO DO A SURVEY THAT DOES NOT PERTAIN TO THEM.
    * Research Design - what should be the appropriate statistical tool? DEPENDS QUAL OR QUAN. DECIDE PRETTY QUICKLY
    * Review of Related Literature - how can i proceed with my RRL? What should I include in here and where can I possibly find such materials on the web? WELL IF YOU WANT TO DO QUAL DO LITTLE RESEARCH REVIEW ASK QUESTIONS AND TRY TO MAKE PATTERNS IF YOU WANT TO DO QUANT DO LOTS OF LITERATURE REVIEW (I WOULD RECCOMEND CINHAL SEARCH ENGINE) TO SEE IF THERE IS DATA OUT THERE AND HOW YOU CAN MEASURE THEM.

    WELL HERE YOU GO. GOOD LUCK!

    I would really really appreciate your positive and prompt response. thank you.

    hi labman,

    thanks for your input. Basically, I plan that it shall be a descriptive type of research in the sense that I will just create an online survey for Filipino nurses to fill-in honestly. I am not sure how I can defend the reliabilty of such research instrument. Please advise me on this. By the way, since my research is all about the effects of nursing licensure scandal, I am not yet clear as to what statistical treatment, if ever I need one, I am going to use. I'll get back soon to let you know any update on my research study. Please continue posting on this thread and those who reads this thread, please lend me a hand. Thank you.
