NRS 490 Week 4 Assignment, Literature Evaluation Table
In nursing practice, accurate identification and usage of research is essential to achieving successful outcomes. Being able to articulate the information and successfully summarize relevant peer-reviewed articles in a scholarly fashion helps to support the student’s ability and confidence to further develop and synthesize the progressively more complex assignments that constitute the components of the course change proposal Capstone Project.
For this assignment, the student will provide a synopsis of 15 peer-reviewed articles from nursing journals using an evaluation table that determines the level and strength of evidence for each of the 15 articles. The articles should be current within the last 5 years and closely relate to the PICOT statement you developed earlier in this topic. Appropriate resources to include involve quantitative research, descriptive analyses, longitudinal studies, or meta-analysis articles. A systematic review may be used to provide background information for the purpose or problem identified in the proposed Capstone Project.
