However, many healthcare organizations are facing varied challenges of promoting health and managing diseases in an ever-changing health care system. Thesis: Despite the challenges that healthcare and nurse are facing in the ever-changing healthcare system, creating a qualitative research plan will enable them to meet the demanding needs of their clients effectively. The researcher will offer a review of common approaches employed in the research plan, but most significant, references would be included for those nurses or healthcare workers interested in studying more about qualitative research design methods. Although quantitative methodology is employed in the nursing field, qualitative research method has become more common than quantitative in the field of medicine. This is because qualitative research helps the nurses or caregivers to understand the special phenomena in the hospital settings (Munhall, 2012). The difference between the two research methods is their flexibility; thus, qualitative methodology is often employed in nursing field. This is because of the relationship created between the participants and the researcher, which is less formal than in the quantitative research design. Therefore, the research will employ qualitative methods because this method seeks to explore the phenomena and aims to solve the problem in the naturalistic paradigm (Holloway, Wheeler and Holloway, 2010). Therefore, the qualitative method will include the use of semi-structured methods, focused
group discussion, in-depth interviews and participant observations.
