NUR 440 Research and Evidence Based Practice Method


The world of professional nursing practice and health policy is ever evolving to meet the new dynamics of care needs in every setting. As a registered nurse, you 
are accountable and responsible for making decisions that are consistent with safe, competent, and ethical practice on a daily basis. You also face a variety of 
complex issues that impact the delivery of your nursing care. 
A professional practice issue is any issue or situation that either compromises client care/service by placing a client at risk, or affects a nurse’s ability to provide 
care/service consistent with standards and guidelines, and agency or organization policies or procedures.
For this final project, you will develop an integrative review of literature about a professional practice issue of local, state, or national importance, subject to 
instructor approval. The purpose of an integrative review of literature assignment is to assist in preparing a scholarly paper that systematically collects, classifies, 
and analyzes a body of research evidence about a professional practice issue in order to make evidence-based practice recommendations for a practice change.
This literature review can be used to guide the development of your capstone project.
The project is divided into four milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final 
submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules One, Two, Four, and Five. The final product will be submitted in Module Seven.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes: 
Assess diverse ways of knowing in nursing for their appropriateness in conducting nursing research and evidence-based nursing practice
Critique relevant primary research sources for their potential to provide evidence-based solutions to clinical nursing problems
Employ principles of ethical conduct of research in seeking evidence-based resources that support professional nursing practice changes
Propose evidence-based recommendations for practice changes that address clinical nursing problems for improving quality of care
