Week 4 Midweek Assignment
Research Proposal Draft
By the due date assigned, write a 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

The next part of your proposal
This section will be the review of the literature. You need three research studies to present. These can be studies you have found in the past if you feel they are appropriate. Remember to use at least one from a nursing research journal. After all, we are nurses
Start with a short paragraph describing your search strategy.
Then discuss the three research studies. These are not to be studies that explain how important your problem is. These are studies that support your proposed intervention. In other words, studies similar to that which you are proposing. You are trying to lend support to your proposed intervention.
After discussing these studies, sum it up with a paragraph. What do these studies, as a whole, suggest? Are there any gaps in the literature that your study may address?
