1 Qualitative Research Critique Name University, NRS-433V Date Qualitative Research Critique xx The first paragraph is always the introduction. No heading is needed for the introduction because the first paragraph is presumed to be just that. The introduction should identify the topic and briefly describe why it is important. The introduction concludes with a thesis statement. A thesis statement essentially sets for the reader what to expect in the discussion. The thesis statement is always a required gradable content area so be sure to include it at the end of your introduction. (Ex: This discussion critiques two qualitative studies that support the proposed evidence-based practice initiative.)
