NUR2058 Section 01 Dimensions of Nursing Practice (11 Weeks) – Online Plus – 2023 Summer Quarter
Module 07 Written Assignment – Researching for Evidence
For this written assignment, select one recent (within the past two years) evidence-based article from a peer-reviewed nursing journal that describes a “best practice” in an area of nursing you are interested in. For example, if you want to be a pediatric nurse, select an article discussing a best practice in pediatric care.
Dimensions Of Nursing Practice
How do I find evidence-based practice articles? Or nursing best practices?
How can I search for articles in only nursing journals?
How do I find scholarly/peer-reviewed nursing articles?
Cite the article and briefly overview how the results or findings were obtained. Then describe the “best practice.” Conclude your discussion by explaining whether you thought the research findings supported the conclusions and the best practice.
This assignment must be no more than 3 pages long. It should include all of the required elements. Use APA Editorial format and attach a copy of the article.
Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
Save your assignment as a Microsoft Word document. (Mac users, please remember to append the ‘.docx’ extension to the filename.) The file’s name should be your first initial and last name, followed by an underscore, the assignment’s name, and an underscore and the date. An example is shown below.
