Assignment 4: Research Review Paper—Part 1
Overview of Research Review Paper
Part of your work in this course will be to develop a research review paper. This paper is divided into four assignments to help you learn content and develop writing skills. These assignments occur in Weeks 1, 2, 6, and 8. The first three assignments are individual components that will fit together to form the whole paper. The fourth assignment provides you an opportunity to combine the previous three assignments, incorporating instructor comments and discussion feedback to make a cohesive report. Here is a list of the four assignments:
• Part 1: Introduction
• Part 2: Literature review
• Part 3: Synthesis of literature and proposal
• Part 4: Editing as needed and submission of the completed paper
The Research Review Paper—Part 1: Introduction
For this week’s assignment, you will identify a women’s health topic and why you’re interested in it. (Scanning the required texts’ contents may help you decide what “grabs” you.) While examining the literature for your selected topic, assess in what way, if any, health promotion, disease prevention, or both has been incorporated or addressed.
According to the CDC (2015), as a nation, the United States spends 86% of healthcare dollars on treating chronic diseases. The Affordable Care Act has included specific language to address illness prevention, health promotion, and wellness for public health (HHS, n.d).
Describe the importance of this topic to women’s health and in what ways you might incorporate health promotion and disease prevention where applicable. One of the many roles of the advanced practice nurse is to educate, empower, and enable patients and their families to improve and take control of their health.
Write two questions about the topic you’d like to explore further and explain why. Refer to at least one published journal article related to your topic.
Cite any sources you use in APA format on a separate page.
• Submit your work in a 3-pages Microsoft Word document.

Due Week # 2
Assignment 3: Research Review Paper—Part 2
Building on what you wrote in Part 1 last week, locate, read, and write about the research and findings in two articles about your topic. These articles should have been published in the past two years in refereed nursing journals. Your paper should analyze, compare, and contrast the authors’ hypotheses, methods, and findings. In addition, you need to make revisions to Part 1 based on the feedback from your instructor, your readings, and/or discussions in class.
• Submit your literature review in a 3-page Microsoft Word document.
Assignment 3 Grading Criteria Maximum Points
Incorporated and resubmitted revisions to Part 1 with Part 2. 5
Selected articles appropriate to the topic identified in Part 1 and as per the criteria defined in the assignment. 3
Ensured the paper summarizes selected authors’ hypotheses, methods, and findings. 10 points
Ensured the paper follows APA format and is written creatively in the student’s own words. 2
Due Week # 6
Assignment 2: Research Review Paper—Part 3
For Part 3 of the research review paper, you will do a synthesis of the literature and create a research proposal.
Before you begin, review the overall assignment instructions from Weeks 1 and 2. Revise Parts 1 and 2 of your paper, as needed, on the basis of instructor feedback, new knowledge acquired in class, or discussion questions and/or additional readings.
Part 3 will probably be the most challenging part of the assignment, so allow yourself plenty of time to think about what you’ve read and develop an argument for further research. Using the knowledge gained from work on Parts 1 and 2, identify one research question that has not been investigated previously or that you would address in a different way than you’ve read about so far. This is sometimes known as gap analysis, in that you are looking for a gap in the existing body of knowledge where new research would contribute to an understanding of the issue in a way that could improve clinical practice for the nurse practitioner and improve patient outcomes.
Your research question must be clearly related to Parts 1 and 2. Be sure to state this clearly as a research question. Explain why you think this is a gap in existing research (relate directly to published research), its clinical relevance (why you think your specific research question is an important area to explore), and your ideas about research design (how you would conduct research to investigate it). Include a discussion of whether your question would lend itself to a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed design; why; and how you might be able to acquire participants for the study.
Cite any sources you use using APA format on a separate page.
• Submit your answers in a 4-page Microsoft Word document.
• Name your document SU_NSG6330_W6_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.
• Submit your document to the W6

Due Week # 8
Assignment 3: Research Review Paper—Final Submission
In Weeks 1, 2, and 6, you completed portions of your research review paper. This week, your assignment is to put it all together to form a cohesive whole. All editorial comments and discussion notes should be compiled logically to complete this paper. Make sure that all three parts merge as a cohesive whole.
• Submit your answers in a 12-page Microsoft Word document previously complete in previous weeks.
