What is the problem statement and hypotheses for research about "Konlewdge, attitude, and barriers of nursing research among Bsc nursing students in SQU"???
A research problem is a question that a researcher wants to answer or a problem that a researcher want to solve.
Identification & formulation of research problem is the first step of research process.
Formulation of research problem
1. Selection of research topic 2. Reviewing the literature & theories 3. Delimiting the research topic 4. Evaluating the research problem 5. Formulating final statement of research problem
Example of a well formulated research problem
Research study type Descriptive / exploratory etc Variables Knowledge, attitude, barriers Population BSc Nursing students Research settings SQU
From the given clues we can formulate research problem in two ways
1. Declarative format
Here the declarative statement is used.
" A descriptive study on knowledge, attitude & barriers of nursing research among BSc Nursing students in SQU"
( please see Table 2 for more understanding )
2. Interrogative format
Here the problem is stated in question form.
"What is the influence of knowledge, attitude & barriers of Nursing research among BSc Nursing students in SQU?"
It is an assumption statement about the relationship between two or more variables that suggest an answer to the research question.
Characteristics of good hypothesis
So the most suitable hypothesis here is Non directional, since the study has multiple variables.
" There is a relationship between knowledge, attitude and barriers of nursing research."
It helps us to understand about what to expect from the results of the research study.
