A. Areas where the disease is most prevalent these days.
B. Changes in the places involved as dengue is already widespread unlike before.
C. The health practices of the community especially in cleanliness.
D. What is being done by the government to reduce incidences?
E. Nursing or medical care of victims in the hospital or at home and during discharge.
This could be done through survey method. Other options under this topic would be to go beyond the recommendations of one research study to be the topic to research.

A. Pattern of the disease. What age is being affected these days and compare it with the previous victims. Who are most affected
B. Lifestyle of the victims. Lifestyle depends though on the type of cancer you are going to study.
C. Areas where cancer is most prevalent
There many other topics under this. It all depends on what angle you are interested in. Research also depends on the kind of cancer you want to study. Data on this topic could also be gathered through survey method, questionnaire, or history taking.
3. Job placement of nursing graduates in the Philippines.

You may include job opportunities of nursing graduates these days after the implementation of a 2 year experience in the country before going abroad. Are they resting nurses? Are they in the call centers as an agent, in the hospital, teaching, research or somewhere else? This research topic may divulge the plight of Filipino nurses.
