Identify a Research Topic
Grove, Gray, and Polit (2015) define a research topic as “a concept or broad issue that is important to
nursing, such as acute pain, chronic pain management, coping with illness, or health promotion” (p. 131).
Define your broad research topic in one to two sentences.
Identify your Research Problem
Grove, Gray, and Polit (2015) explain that a research problem “is an area in which there is a gap in the
knowledge needed for nursing practice” (p.131).

Develop your Research Question
Research questions should be short, probing, and take variables into account (Grove, Gray & Polit,
2015). Although the PICOS format is not required, your question should address patient, intervention,
comparisons, outcomes for practice, and study design.
Develop a one-sentence research question.
