This paper provides a critical evaluation of two nursing articles, one experimental and one non-experimental, with respect to the soundness of the stated research question and the research methodology employed to deliver the appropriate answer or answers to the stated question. The articles reviewed are: "Improving the Retention Rate of Newly Graduated Nurses", Pam Almanda, et al. (2004, non-experimental) and "Nurse Internship Pathway to Clinical Comfort, Confidence and Competency", Cheryl Blanzola, et. al. (2004, experimental).

From the Paper:

"Unfortunately the hypothesis stated by Blanzola and her two co-authors set forth a hypothesis that was not only in null form but one that predicted an increase in core competency attainment visa via internship participation. The reason a direction is not suitable for experimental research lies in the area of attempting to explain that which did not happened. Attempting to give reason as to why a treatment (nursing internship) did not happen is fraught with subjective explanations and akin to discussing how many angles can be placed on a head of a pin. In other words, there is no reasonable answer."
