Developing nursing knowledge and answering research question is challenging because it requires the researcher to construct logical techniques. The more rigorousness there is in a research design, the more trust one can place in the information obtained. The purpose of the advanced quantitative research methodology is to prepare nursing professionals to design and carry out research with direct implications for practice to build nursing knowledge. The course will address the following topics: introduction; systematic literature review; overview of quantitative research design; sampling; informed consent; ethical consideration; causal modeling; time-series and longitudinal design; secondary data analysis; longitudinal data analysis; triangulation; national research funding priorities; case control study; clinical trial; article critique; interpretation of findings; and the presentation of results.
