Research Proposal draft
The final project for NSG6101 consists of the development of a novel research proposal specific to your role specialization. The project must include an intervention
appropriate to nursing practice and consistent with your MSN role option. An alternative to the above includes the selection of a specialty organization to focus
research proposals based on the priorities of that organization. Examples of these organizations could include (but are not limited to): Sigma Theta Tau International
American Nurses Foundation Oncology Nursing Society Association of Nurses in AIDS Care American Psychiatric Nursing Association American Association of Critical
Care Nurses National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners National League For Nursing etc.
References no more of 5 years.
This is the research I selected and was approved by my teacher:
Like other diseases Diabetes type 2 requires appropriate management lest the patient succumbs to the health problem. Other than prescribed medication physical
exercises can go a long way in regulating blood glucose levels of older diabetic adults.
The research aims at investigating the effectiveness of physical exercises in managing Diabetes type 2 among older patients.
What types of physical exercises can older diabetic adults engage in to manage their blood glucose (BG) levels?
What is the impact of regular exercises on the blood glucose level of diabetes type 2 patients?
