NURS 5205 Evidence Based Practice for the Advanced Generalist Nurse Spring 2023

Searching using the Research Appraisal Assignment Parameters

Search CINAHL to find a research article on exercise that has been published in a core nursing journal in the last 5 years.

  • Article must feature a quantitative research study (not a review or systematic review).
  • Consider:
    • limiting to a specific clinical population by ANDing (children, adolescents, etc.)
    • limiting search to clinical trials and randomized controlled trials (under publication type in the CINAHL limits).

There are a number of excellent databases in which to find Evidence Based Practice articles.  In our first session for the Research Appraisal Assignment, we will focus on CINAHL. ​​​​​​​
