evaluating a nursing practice environment to identify a nursing problem in the clinical area.

The first step of the evidence-based practice process is to evaluate a
nursing practice environment to identify a nursing problem in the
clinical area. When a nursing problem is discovered, the nurse
researcher develops a clinical guiding question to address that nursing
practice problem.

For this assignment, you will create a clinical guiding question know
as a PICOT question. The PICOT question must be relevant to a nursing
practice problem. To support your PICOT question, identify six
supporting peer-revised research articles, as indicated below. The PICOT
question and six peer-reviewed research articles you choose will be
utilized for subsequent assignments.

Use the “Literature Evaluation Table” to complete this assignment.

  1. Select a nursing practice problem of interest to use as the focus
    of your research. Start with the patient population and identify a
    clinical problem or issue that arises from the patient population. In
    200–250 words, provide a summary of the clinical issue.
  2. Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT question in your
    selected nursing practice problem area of interest. The PICOT question
    should be applicable to your proposed capstone project (the project
    students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program
    of study).
  3. The PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project. 
  4. Conduct a literature search to locate six research articles
    focused on your selected nursing practice problem of interest. This
    literature search should include three quantitative and three
    qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your nursing
    practice problem.

Note: To assist in your search, remove the words qualitative and
quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic.
For example: Search for diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To
determine what research design was used in the articles the search
produced, review the abstract and the methods section of the article.
The author will provide a description of data collection using
qualitative or quantitative methods. Systematic Reviews, Literature
Reviews, and Metanalysis articles are good resources and provide a
strong level of evidence but are not considered primary research
articles.  Therefore, they should not be included in this assignment.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment,
solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should
be presented using APA formatting 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.
