Library Assignment Instructions for Nursing Students
The purpose of this library assignment is to help nursing students to develop their research skills and to become familiar with different credible data sources available through the Library page at the FNU.edu website. In addition, this assignment will help students to apply the PICOT (Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, and Time) question format to develop a research question and to locate and evaluate scholarly sources.
Topic Selection: Select a topic that interests you and that is relevant to nursing Psychiatric practice. Your topic should be broad enough to allow for an in-depth exploration but narrow enough to be manageable within the scope of an 850-1000-word research paper. You may select a topic related to patient care, nursing education, health promotion, or any other area of nursing practice that interests you.
Searching for Literature: Use the Library page at the FNU.edu website to search for scholarly sources related to your topic. You must utilize at least 3 scholarly sources that have been published within the last 5 years. You may use databases such as CINAHL, MEDLINE, Embase, ClinicalKey, The Cochrane Library. Be sure to use appropriate keywords and to apply search filters to limit your search to scholarly, peer-reviewed articles.
Evaluating Sources: Once you have identified potential sources, use the CRAAP test (Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose) to evaluate their credibility and relevance to your research question. Be sure to select sources that are relevant to your topic, written by credible authors, and based on rigorous research methods.
Writing the Paper: Your research paper should follow APA 7 guidelines and include the following sections: Introduction, Literature Review, Methodology, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion. Be sure to use in-text citations and to include a reference list at the end of your paper.
Please keep in mind that the paper will be checked for plagiarism, and similarity above 25% will not be accepted for submission.
