Validity and feasibility are measures of importance of data collected based on the tools used for this purpose. Validity refers to the extent to which a tool of data collection measures what it should measure. A valid tool should ensure that the differences found within the tools of measurements reflect true differences among what is measured. Feasibility is the measure of whether a study can be done by the use available resources. Feasibility considers a variety of factors including availability of time, study participants, cooperation by other, presence of equipment and facilities, availability of money and the experience of the researcher (Polit & Beck, 2017). In mixed method research, it is possible to achieve both validity and feasibility of research.

The mixed method is an approach to research that integrates qualitative and quantitative data in one study of through a coordination of a number of cluster studies. Mixed method research is important for eliminating contradictions between qualitative findings and quantitative results (Parvaiz, Mufti & Wahab, 2016). By reflecting the viewpoints of participants, the mixed method approach ensures that study findings are grounded in the experiences of participants.

To ensure validity and feasibility, the mixed method research uses two or more methods to collect data. As such, if any of these two methods has a problem with validity, they can be counterbalanced through triangulation (Gibson, 2017). Secondly, through complementarity, the mixed method approach, the researcher can avoid limitations with one method and ensure feasibility of their research. Thirdly, by incrementality, the researcher can use qualitative research through qualitative research and test using the quantitative approach (Polit & Beck, 2017). As such, there is an enhanced validity as the model or hypothesis is supported by multiple and complementary data types.

When conducting research validity is an important aspect that needs to be guaranteed in order to justify results. This concept stresses the importance and relevance of the measurements used during the research. Reliability and validity are two concepts that are intertwined and both combine to bring consistency to the research (Polit & Beck, 2016). Validity focuses on how the method used measures what needs to be measured therefore, it is a fundamental part of the research (Middleton, 2019).

Validity can be guaranteed by assessing the different methods used. It may present difficulties but it can be estimated through a series of tests. Test-retest is a way to verify if the results obtained in an interview in a group of people remains the same a few months later (Long, 2017).

Validity can also be guaranteed by assessing construct, content and criterion (Middleton, 2019). These three types of validity assessment strive to proof that the measures used for these concepts as well as others that may be related to them yield the same results thus, making it valid and feasible. Conducting an evaluation of the measures employed can ultimately confirm the validity of the methods used.

Nursing theories are a great help for nurses through strategies and methodologies that ensure effective and optimum care delivery to the patients in the healthcare field. The current nursing schools have the responsibility to provide accurate knowledge to future nurses with fundamental inclusion of on nursing theories. However, as explained by McDonough and Quinn in their 2019 article “Nursing Theory in Hospital Models of Care, “as much as current research focuses on nursing concepts in professional practice, a significant component in nursing theory escapes in the models mentioned above. Ideally, nurses have to acquire, understand and synthesize a great variety of information, research, and use critical thinking, which requires guidance. The nursing theory should not omit nursing concepts since they hold a foundational role in practice models and nursing as a profession.

Nurses who wish to integrate theory into practice should contemplate the personal doctrines and mission of training. These theories are essential in nursing since they offer foundational knowledge to supplement care concepts that sustain the profession (Quinn & McDonough, 2019). The aspect is significant because it allows the professionals to articulate evidence that governs their practice (Younas, 2017). These theories are mostly well structured and knowledge-driven concepts that outline the compass of nursing practice. The conclusion that nursing theory misses in teaching concepts has been debated in several studies, including Shireen et al. (2020), who explained that the same methods are depictions of evidence-based practice. Still, they miss within the area of profession.

If someone else looked at this from the same perspective and based on the points discussed, the outcome would be the same. Nursing theories should not be ignored in conceptual frameworks since they are centrally significant in healthcare delivery and nursing. Anyone regardless of nursing background can understand this as this applies to any field, where foundations are the building block upon which a structure is created. However, these can only assist in patient care if the professional has the necessary qualifications and knowledge to adhere to the guidelines. Nursing has made phenomenal achievements in the past but embracing a more theory-based approach is likely to make modern medicine expressive and more oriented to professionalism other than a vocation.
