Article Review

In a study to determine experiences that night shift registered nurses undergo in acute contextual settings, Valerie Anderson used a phenomenological qualitative research method to answer the research questions. The question, “what are the experiences of registered nurses working in night shifts in acute areas?” aimed at developing a clear understanding of the negative impact of working during the night in extreme settings.

The p-value is the statistical sampling outcomes used in tackling a research question. It principally determines the probabilities in the study (Lang and Secic 46). For instance, in this study, a purposeful technique was used in sampling with 5 registered nurses used as the respondents to direct interviews. A six level data analysis method was adopted, dividing the process into individual and combined protocols, with each protocol addressing the interview questions as it is composed. For instance, the individual protocol addressed the interview questions using individual inferences while the combined protocol used group inferences to determine the interview questions.

The p value in this study was determined by testimonial narrations from the respondents with no specific intended purpose, thus making the respondents to freely share without any time limits. The base of the standard rigor did not follow a quantitative evaluation but rather a phenomenological approach. The study went further to reveal the typical essential results structure. This is where all relevant data in regard to the research question was synthesized. The demographic data results were identified using the typical essential structures of the participants sample results (Anderson 52). The p value enabled the researchers to identify the information that helped in providing insights concerning factors that increase retention of registered night shift nurses with regard to improving their satisfaction, productivity, and patient care.
