Week 2: Refinement of a Nursing Concern

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 Twos 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.
