NR 351 Week 5 Discussion: Evidence to Support Nursing Practices (Graded)

  • Full-text
  • English language
  • Peer-reviewed
  • NOT an Evidence-Based Care Sheet or CINAHL Guide
  • Published in the past five years
  • Contains evidence to support a nursing practice in your practice area

Summarize this article in one paragraph. Explain why you selected this article. Provide an APA reference for this article.

Reply to a peer who has selected a different article. Provide feedback on that peer’s article choice and APA reference format. Your peers will also provide feedback on your article choice and APA reference format.

NOTE: Be sure to review the grading rubric on this page (click on the three dots on top right of this page). Both a scholarly outside source (scholarly professional nursing journal article described above) AND use and crediting of at least one Assigned Reading or Lesson are required.
