The purpose of this thesis is to personally recount my experience and adventure constructing a Departmental Honors Thesis in the field of nursing research. This thesis is a case study approach in which I explore the question as to why there is an increase in African American infant mortality as opposed to other races. Nursing implications and theories as well as limitations to the research are included in this study as well. Construction of this thesis was met with great difficulty including an intense literature review, multiple changes in research methodologies, limited clinician participation, etc. Overall, the conclusion of this thesis was to explore my experience as a nursing student who was limited in field research and data analysis.
