Week 2: Refinement of a Nursing Concern into an Evidence-based Practice Proposal Using the Research Process

Purpose

This assignment provides the opportunity for the student to continue work on a previously identified area or phenomenon of interest related to their MSN specialty track. Week Two’s assignment builds upon the identified area of interest by developing an overview of the evidence-based practice (EBP) project and the PCIOT/PICo question. This assignment initiates the evidence-based practice proposal that is continued throughout the entire course with each assignment adding components of the research process.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

CO#1 Integrate evidence-based practice and research to support advancement of holistic nursing care in diverse healthcare settings. PO 1

CO#2 Integrate knowledge related to evidence-based practice and person-centered care to improve healthcare outcomes.  PO 2, 5

CO#4 Develop knowledge related to research and evidence-based practice as a basis for designing and critiquing research studies. PO 1, 2, 3, 5

Requirements

Description of the Assignment

This assignment builds on the identification of a nursing concern from NR 500 and the application of a nursing theory to the selected concern from NR 501. For this course, the selected concern and nursing theory then serve as a foundation to the identification of PICOT/PICo. Identification of the literature search strategy is also required. The purpose of the MSN project proposal is to translate evidence currently found in the literature into practice within the chosen specialty track.  Due to the research complexity, time involvement, and implications regarding human subjects, drug studies are not acceptable areas of interest for a MSN project.

· Identify the question in correct format with all required elements

· PICOT for quantitative research approach

· PICo for qualitative research approach

· Identify how the expected outcome will be useful to your future practice setting

· Discuss the purpose of conducting a literature review and the contribution it will provide to this EBP proposal

· Identify the steps used to conduct a literature review for this EBP proposal by including:

· The specific library databases used

· The key search terms and phrases used

· The minor (additional) search terms and phrases used

· Identify any specialty organization that is relevant to this EBP proposal

4. Theoretical Framework: This section presents the theoretical framework that will used in this EBP project. It should contain the following section:

· Explain the theoretical framework to be used in this EBP proposal

· Describe how the identified theoretical framework is applied to this EBP proposal
