Sampling theory was developed to determine the most effective way to acquire a sample that accurately reflects the population under study. Key concepts sampling theory include populations, target population, sampling or eligibility criteria, accessible population, elements, representativeness, sampling frames, and sampling plans or methods. (Gray, Groves, & Burns 2013). A sampling plan or method outlines strategies used to obtain a sample or a study. Like a design, a sampling plan is not specific to a study. he plans is designed to increase representativeness and decrease systematic variation or bias. he sampling plan may use probability (random) or non probability (nonrandom) sampling methods. When critically appraising a study, identifying the study sampling plan as either probability or non probability (Gray, Groves, & Burns 2013).

In Nursing research having a good sampling good sample selection and appropriate sample size usually strengthens a study, saves valuable time, money and resources. Like in healthcare research, having a poor design could lead you too use of harmful practices, delays in new treatment for patients and opportunities lacking for high quality care. However, not every study can achieve perfection and researchers often just try to balance between what is considered and ideal sample and one that is a convenient one. Sampling is far from simple but here are some of the techniques to think about as you juggle the probability with the nonprobability in research.
