IRB assignment

Imagine you are a nurse researcher who is interested in studying the effects of violence on prisoners who witness a violent act while incarcerated. You are preparing the paperwork for the institutional review board (IRB) to conduct the study. You will have a partner (imaginary, for paperwork purposes) to assist in your investigation. The paperwork needs to be thorough. IRB boards are generally very picky!

Complete the Nu 401 IRB Forms.docx and submit along with 5 questions you desire to ask the participants and a short abstract (1 page) describing the study you would like permission to perform to the IRB. This abstract is a short description of the study you are seeking to perform, there should not be any results as you have not obtained permission to perform the study. Correct completion of the form (use your imagination) is worth 5 points. The list of questions is worth 5 points and the abstract is worth 10 points. Think about open-ended vs. closed-ended questions and how these can impact your data. Professional writing is important and points will be deducted for grammar, spelling, etc
