What “tests” were run to analyze data? What software was used in the data analysis process?

Posted: February 22nd, 2022

In providing patient care, nurses look in the literature for research studies that include strong evidence for current best practice. However, nurses should not assume that all research published provides sufficient quality information to apply to professional practice. Therefore, it is important that nurses know how to critique articles using specific criteria that examines strengths and weaknesses of the research.
Quantitative research examines relationships between variables. Quantitative data is measurable and usually recorded using statistics or numbers. Because quantitative data is number oriented, results and conclusions are usually clear and concise. To determine the quality, strengths, and weaknesses of quantitative research the nurse must examine specific criteria.
