Nursing Research Design

Introduction: 

Research design refers to the overall strategy that you will use to integrate the different components of your study in a coherent and logical way to ensure that you have effectively addressed the research problem. Your research design becomes the "blueprint" for the collection, measurement, and analysis of your data. Note that the actual problem you are researching will determine the type of design you use, not the other way around.
