Assignment: Simulation in Nursing


Topic: Including simulation in undergraduate nursing program curriculum.

I have already completed the introduction for the research topic and have attached it at the bottom.

There is not a proposed page limit for the paper.


Part 1 – Evidence review and synthesis

List the names of the databases you searched (Less than 5 years)Search Tracker turned in that includes PICOT question and shows path for searches.
Summarize “keeper” studies in the evaluation table, Columns of the Evaluation Table contain appropriate information from which decisions can be made.
Authors’ names, date of publication (included in the citation).
Quality and level of evidence
How significant (or not) the evidence is and why you think so. How are these articles relevant to change practice or policy for your specific practice site and population? If a study is not significant and you have included it, mention how your clinical expertise was involved in this decision.
Your summary the synthesis section should clearly indicate the intervention you plan to use in your project proposal.
Purpose of the project
Include intervention & Theoretical framework
Clinical questions; How the clinical question indicates the type of study that will be done (quasi-experimental vs. experimental). Describe the type of study and clearly describe it.

Study design: Briefly describe the study design indicated by the question (experimental, quasi-experimental, descriptive).
Setting/sample: Briefly describe the setting for the study, who your study participants will be, and how these participants will be chosen. Will random sampling or a sample of convenience be used?
Confidentiality: How will you protect the confidentiality of your participants?
Procedures/intervention: Discuss the intervention you will implement and the procedures you will use in enough detail that others could replicate the study.
Instruments/scales and measurement of outcomes: Describe the instruments you will use to measure changes and whether they are quantitative, qualitative, or of a mixed design. If they have been tested previously, include reliability and validity data.
Data collection: Explain plans for data collection including:Methods of collection, i.e., interviews, paper and pencil testing, etc.
Testing frequency. Will you gather baseline data prior to the intervention? Will you employ repeated measures such as pre- and posttests?
Data analysis

State your clinical question.
Briefly state the intervention you will implement. While these two items are not typically included in Part 5, doing so will help orient faculty so appropriate feedback can be provided.
What outcomes will be analyzed and how they will be analyzed?
Describe the statistical analysis you will do relating this to the data collection tools you plan to use.
Indicate the types of demographic data you plan to report on your participants as well.
Briefly discuss the outcomes expected should this project be implemented.
Identify your stakeholders by job title and how their participation was key to the project.
Briefly discuss potential barriers to project implementation that stakeholders may present. Include strategies to prevent or address these barriers.

EBP Oral/Poster Presentation

Presentation content and quality is consistent with graduate work

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
