MSN6038 nursing

I’m working on a nursing project and need a sample draft to help me study.



For this assignment, you will begin to investigate a topic of interest to you. You will want to locate five research articles that address the clinical problem in your practice setting through an evidence-based solution that uses current or emerging technology.

Then, search the Capella library databases for articles that report research related to the problem. Find the five research articles that address your topic and problem. The articles that are chosen must be from the last five years, peer reviewed, and from journals that contain original research.

Below are some questions to consider as you conduct your research:

  • What is the clinical problem?
  • How does the clinical problem impact nursing?
  • How does technology support or address the clinical problem?
  • Did the studies use the proper statistical tests?
  • Were the sample sizes appropriate?
  • If the data were obtained from medical records, did the researchers describe the methodology of data collection and analysis?
  • What are the potential risks to human subjects in the studies?
  • What methods did the researchers employ to protect human participants?
  • Do you feel that the study’s participants had adequate protections? Why?
  • What are the strengths or limitations of the research articles?
  • What are the trends or patterns that you noticed?
  • What are the implications for practice?


The items below correspond to the grading criteria in this assignment’s scoring guide. The sub-bullets are a guide for how you can work to ensure that you meet each scoring guide criterion.
