Critical Appraisal of Quantitative and Qualitative Papers on Nursing

Provide a critical appraisal of two quantitative and qualitative papers on nursing experiences.

The two articles you must critically appraise are:

  • Quantitative: ‘Reducing nurses’ stress: A randomized controlled trial of a web-based stress management program for nurses’ by Hersch et al.
  • Qualitative: ‘Nurses’ experiences of caring for people with COVID-19 in Hong Kong: a qualitative inquiry’ by Chau et al.

Support your evaluation or discussion of each research study with reference to the appropriate theory (e.g., definitions and explanations using literature on research terms, research methods, and research methodology).
