Please, also, review the "sticky" thread of nursing research resources in this forum - good examples of proposals and quantitative and qualitative research. Different schools, courses, and instructors have different expectations for such an assignment. If you are not as to what your assignment actually entails, then you will have to talk with your instructor to get that clarified for yourself.
If you don't understand the content of the class that you are taking, you should also probably discuss that with your instructor and ask her to guide you towards some resources that can help you better the material she is trying to teach.
But you always have to keep in mind that we are just a bunch of strangers on the Internet who might have opinions about research that are NOT the same as those of your instructor. It will be up to you to take any of our comments and adapt them to the expectations of the particular class you are taking. Let us know how that meeting with your instructor goes.

The research proposal should be organised and submitted under the following headings:. This is the introduction to the proposal.
It should give the context of the research problem and highlight why the topic you are going to research is important. You might like to identify why the gap exists that your research will fill.
You should detail the specific research question s you seek to answer and set out a short list of clear aims and objectives. You must make sure you justify your research with a rationale grounded in existing academic literature; in other words, you will need to conduct a preliminary review of texts, journal articles and research studies which cover the same or similar areas that form the subject area of your research.
You should describe in detail the methods you propose to use e. You should also suggest how you will analyse all the data you collect. You will need to refer to your research methods textbook and any other relevant literature to support your choice of methods and analysis. You should be able to anticipate problems in conducting your research and also be able to offer solutions as to ways of overcoming them e. In this section you also need to address the ethical issues associated with your research.
You should aim to achieve a balance between all of the sections of your proposal and do not allow the discussion of one area to dominate over all the others; for example, if you are conducting a library-based study you may think that you have relatively little to say about research methods or ethics but do bear in mind that critical and extended literature reviews are as valid a form of research as any other and you should explain, evaluate and justify this choice of method.
Do remember that you are not required or permitted to actually gather any data.
