This paper presents the ®ndings of a longitudinal cohort study using Grounded Theory to discover the effect(s) of mentorship on student nurses following the introduction of the 1992 programme of education leading to a Diploma of Higher Education in Nursing and registration with the United Kingdom Central Council (UKCC). The cohort consisted of 10 students from a large Scottish College of Nursing & Midwifery who were interviewed on ®ve occasions during the three years of their course. Students also kept a diary to record their thoughts and experiences regarding mentorship during their practice placements. In addition, a further seven students volunteered to participate by diary only. Data were analysed with the aid of NUD.IST and subjected to the constant comparative method of analysis.

On the evidence hierarchy, it is in the Level IIa category because it is presented as a single randomized clinical trial. For this type of study, researchers emphasize specific concepts, the existence of reality and conduct studies with a fixed design (Polit & Beck, 2010). Verification is also sought for research predictions. Experiments are implemented in a controlled environment and researchers remain distant from their subjects in order to preserve the integrity of the studies. In the second scenario, qualitative research is utilized.

When randomization is carried out properly in a double blind randomized controlled trial, the possibility of the experimenter or the participants influencing the choice of intervention either consciously or otherwise is reduced. For a successful randomization to be achieved in double blind, randomized controlled trials, both allocation concealment and double blind procedures are employed (Schulz, Chalmers, Hayes & Altman, 2002). Allocation concealment hinders the designated individuals who enter participants into a trial from learning about any impending allocation. Allocation is put to use prior to the start of a trial while the double blind procedure is executed while the trial is taking place. These two strategies are used to conceal the sequence of assignment from
Remember to use a piece of regular and carbon paper on the time-of-flight accessory to measure the point of impact. Run the trials five times before starting from a new release point. There two separate runs conducted in this lab. Use the recorded information and compare it to the theoretical. Using the mean values and standard deviation calculate any discrepancy.
The article “Substance use among Nurses: Differences between Specialties” focused on 13 different specialties. The research method used by the author was a random sampling of six thousand nurses. An eight page anonymous survey was mailed to all the selected nurses and four thousand four hundred thirty eight responded to the survey. Each nurse was contacted six times to be reminded to fill out the survey and mail the results back. On the final attempt a post card was mailed, giving the nurse the opportunity to be removed for the research mailing list.
According to Sipe and Eisendrath, the primary difference between MBCT and CBT is that MBCT is characterized by promoting an enhanced awareness of the individual’s relationship to thoughts and feelings [rather than changing specific thought content as is learned in CBT] (2012). In MBCT, patients are encouraged to “notice and allow thoughts and feelings without fixing, changing or avoiding,” while in CBT, patients are taught to “test and challenge dysfunctional beliefs and invent new interpretations” (Sipe & Eisendrath, 2012). It has therefore been postulated that the metacognitive awareness patients learn to attain in MBCT makes them better equipped to process distressing cognitions and therefore less vulnerable to relapse [than with CBT] (Sipe & Eisendrath,
