hi to everyone. im having difficulties doing our nursing research. this is my first time to do a thesis. my topic is about the proficiency in giving bedside care by the graduates of a diploma program and the basic degree program students. who performs better? i dont know where to search for related and foreign literature. i dont know what to look for and where. my head is already aching. if any of you have any bright ideas, opinions or knowledge about this topic, please feek free to reply or make a comment (without being bias of course). will appreciate your help. deadline is fast approaching..tnx:spin:
There was a widely distributed article that stated that BSN prepared nurses had better outcomes than ADN nurses.
Educational Levels of Hospital Nurses and Surgical Patient Mortality
Linda H. Aiken, PhD, RN; Sean P. Clarke, PhD, RN; Robyn B. Cheung, PhD, RN; Douglas M. Sloane, PhD; Jeffrey H. Silber, MD, PhD
Here is an excellent critique of the above research: http://allnurses.com/forums/1379680-post3.html
The above study and any study you find is seriously flawed. I would pick another topic and fast. There are no legit studies that prove one way or another.
A discussion. http://allnurses.com/forums/f8/does-...sn-132809.html
