NSG6101 Nursing Research Methods
Week 4 Midweek Assignment
Research Proposal Draft
By the due date assigned, write a (2-3 pages) paper addressing the sections below of the research proposal.
This week you will submit the Literature Review section of your proposal. Each week you have been adding to your growing body of evidence to support your problem and proposed innovation to address the problem. The review of literature is a critical, analytical summary and synthesis of the current knowledge of your research topic. Thus it should compare and relate different theories, findings, etc., rather than just summarize them individually.
The following resources will help guide you (in addition to our course textbooks):
THE WRITER'S HANDBOOK
Guidelines for writing a literature review
The Writing Center at UNC-Chapel Hill
Writing the Literature Review: Step-by-Step Tutorial for Graduate Students
Writing the Literature Review (Part Two): Step-by-Step Tutorial for Graduate Students
Submit your assignment to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
