Discussion Questions
Data analysis is key for discovering credible findings from implementing nursing studies. Discussion and
conclusions can be made about the meaning of the findings from the data analysis.
Share what you learned about descriptive analysis (statistics), inferential analysis (statistics), and qualitative
analysis of data; include something that you learned that was interesting to you and your thoughts on why data
analysis is necessary for discovering credible findings for nursing.
Compare clinical significance and statistical significance; include which one is more meaningful to you when
considering application of findings to nursing practice
