Respond to the following:

Nursing science contributes to the unique body of knowledge for the nursing profession. Each profession defines what is meant by science that guides the development of knowledge. Though different words are used, there are basically 2 scientific paradigms: empirical/positivist and constructivist/naturalism. The paradigms align with either quantitative or qualitative research.

Is your worldview closer to the positivist or the constructivist paradigm? In a minimum of 175 words, explain why and how each paradigm is aligned with either quantitative or qualitative research.
