Hello professor and class,

The qualitative study that I selected is by Blume et al. (2021). From the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Appendix E Evidence Appraisal Tool, this article was rated high/good quality. The article stipulated the purpose of the article which was to retrieve comprehensive nursing-sensitive patient outcomes (NSPOs) from nurse staffing published journals and from healthcare professionals. The article did not have research questions. The research design that was used was umbrella reviews. According to Gray et al. (2017), umbrella reviews are the highest levels of evidence. They are overviews of systematic and meta-analysis reviews.

The article had a sample of 21 nurses and other healthcare professionals. These professionals were purposefully sampled. They knew the research area. They were not a representation of a population. They were characterized as experts with several years of practice, from different parts of Germany,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
