provide a synopsis of eight   peer-reviewed articles from nursing journals using an evaluation table   that determines the level and strength of evidence for each of the   eight articles.

In nursing practice, accurate identification and application 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 eight   peer-reviewed articles from nursing journals using an evaluation table   that determines the level and strength of evidence for each of the   eight articles. The articles should be current within the last 5 years   and closely relate to the PICOT statement developed earlier in this   course. The articles may include 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.   Use the “Literature Evaluation Table” resource to complete   this assignment.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment,   solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and   references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines,   which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student   Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to   beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for   successful completion.
