Identify a barrier or issue in health care that I would like to address is nurse shortage in hospitals and how quality of care suffers. Perform a literature review on the barrier or issue using the GCU Library. Present 8-10 peer-reviewed primary research articles. These articles should be either qualitative or quantitative.
You may use either health care or nursing peer-reviewed journals; however, at least half of the primary articles must come from a peer-reviewed nursing journal. The peer-reviewed articles must consist of research published within the last 5 years.
Use the “Literature Review: Table of Evidence” template to document your detailed assessment of each primary study. This document helps break down the components of each article to ensure the article meets the requirements for a professional nursing paper. Ensure that each of your articles provides information that meets each criterion listed. Provide a detailed and clear explanation when describing how each article supports your Capstone Project and evidence-based practice (between five and six sentences).
This assignment uses a “Literature Review: Table of Evidence Grading Form” that corresponds to the “Literature Review: Table of Evidence” template. Instructors will be using the grading form to assess the assignment and provide feedback; therefore, students should review the grading form prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
