Evidence-based review of the literature

Evidence-based review of the literature

Part 4

Within the template, write a 4- to 6-page scholarly paper that includes the following:

  • Title
  • Introduction that explains an authentic problem or issue that could be the focus of your Practicum Project. This includes a brief rationale for your selected focus that incorporates references from the literature, specialization standards, regulatory standards, and/or other sources you have used to validate this project.
  • Goal statement with two or three measurable project objectives. A goal statement identifies what you expect to accomplish, the focus area, and the population. It introduces the project and conveys, in broad terms, how you plan to solve a particular problem or issue. Project objectives delineate your strategy for reaching the goal and the steps you will follow to complete the project. You must include two or three measurable objectives that use Application-level or higher verbs from Bloom’s Taxonomy.
  • Evidence-based review of the literature for project justification. This review provides evidence-based support for your identified problem, project methods, and evaluation. The literature should be directed toward justifying the project, not focus on potential solutions. You must include a review of your specialization’s professional-practice standards and guidelines related to your project and a minimum of five (5) scholarly references for this section of the paper.
  • The project methodology, methods, and theories that are appropriate for your project, including an explanation of why they will be valuable to use. This section addresses in detail how you will accomplish the project objectives. Include, as relevant, the who, when, where, and how of each objective.
  • The resources you need to complete the project. Identify and justify the human, physical, and/or technical resources you will need. Note that for this assignment, you do not have to address the financial aspects of your plan.
  • A formative and summative evaluation that will evaluate your Practicum Project. This details what the evaluations will measure and what information you can gain from that. Explain how you will use the evaluation results and how you will determine if the project is proceeding as planned.
  • Timeline. Create a graphic timeline representing significant stages of your project. Provide a narrative to help your Faculty SME understand the timeline. Include the timeline in an Appendix to your Practicum Project Plan.
  • References. References should be formatted in APA style and reflect current nursing/health literature (i.e., published within the past 5 years).Title of the Paper in Full Goes Here

    Title of the Paper

    This is your introductory paragraph designed to inform the reader of what you will cover in the paper. (BSN Students – Carefully follow your course-specific Grading Rubric concerning the content that is required for your assignment and the Academic Writing Expectations [AWE] level of your course.) This template’s formatting—Times New Roman 12-point font (other options include Calibri 11, Arial 11, Lucida Sans Unicode 10, and Georgia 11), double spacing, 1” margins, 1/2” indentations beginning of each paragraph, page numbers, and page breaks—is set for you, and you do not need to change it. Do not add any extra spaces between the heading and the text (you may want to check Spacing under Paragraph, and make sure settings are all set to “0”). The ideas in this paper should be in your own words and supported by credible outside evidence. Cite the author, year of publication, and page number, if necessary, per APA. The introductory paragraph should receive no specific heading because the first section functions as your paper’s introduction. Build this paragraph with the following elements:

    1. Briefly detail what has been said or done regarding the topic.

    2. Explain the problem with what has been said or done.

    3. Create a purpose statement (also commonly referred to as a thesis statement ) as the last sentence of this paragraph: “The purpose of this paper is to describe…”.

    Level 1 Heading (Name According to the Grading Rubric Required Content)

    This text will be the beginning of the body of the paper. Even though this section has a new heading, make sure to connect this section to the previous one so the reader can follow along with the ideas and research presented. The first sentence, or topic sentence, in each paragraph should transition from the previous paragraph and summarize the main point in the paragraph. Make sure each paragraph addresses only one topic. When you see yourself drifting to another idea, make sure you break into a new paragraph. Avoid long paragraphs that are more than three-fourths of a page. Per our program recommendations, each paragraph should be at least 3-4 sentences in length and contain a topic sentence, evidence, analysis, and a conclusion or lead out sentence. See the MEAL plan (Main idea, Evidence, Analysis, and Lead out) in the Writing Center. In your paragraphs, synthesize your resources/readings into your own words and avoid using direct quotations. In the rare instances you do use a direct quotation of a historical nature from a source, the page or paragraph numbers are also included in the citation. For example, Leplante and Nolin (2014) described burnout as “a negative affective response occurring as result of chronic work stress” (p. 2). When you transition to a new idea, you should begin a new paragraph.

    Another Level 1 Heading (Name According to the Grading Rubric Required Content)

    Here is another Level 1 heading. Again, the topic sentence of this section should explain how this paragraph is related to or a result of what you discussed in the previous section. Consider using transitions between sentences to help readers see the connections between ideas.

    Be sure to credit your source(s) in your paper using APA style. The APA Manual 7th edition and the Walden Writing Center are your best citation resources. Writing Center resources are available at https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/apa/citations . You must appropriately and correctly cite all works used in your document.

    The following paragraph provides examples of in-text citation examples. According to Leplante (2019), employers cause burnout when employees are stressed by too much work. Or you might write and cite in this manner: Employers cause burnout when employees are stressed by too much work (Leplante, 2019). When paraphrasing, the author name and year of publication in citations is required by APA to direct the reader to a specific source in the reference list. Personal communications are not listed in the reference page but are noted in text as (S. Wall, personal communication, May 24, 2019). This should immediately follow the content of the interview. Also, go to

    Another Level 1 Heading (Name According to the Grading Rubric Required Content)

    APA can seem difficult to master, but following the general rules becomes easier with use. The Writing Center also offers numerous APA resources on its website and can answer your questions via email . Prior to submitting your paper for grading, submit your draft to SafeAssign Drafts found in the left column of your course.

    And so forth until the conclusion….


    The conclusion section should recap the major points of your paper. Do not introduce new ideas in this paragraph; the conclusion should interpret what you have written and what it means in the bigger picture.


    Please note that the following references are intended as examples only. List your own references in alphabetical order. Also, these illustrate different types of references; you are responsible for any citations not included in this list. In your paper, be sure every reference entry matches a citation, and every citation refers to an item in the reference list.
