Consider a potential problem appropriate to the Family nurse practitioner role that you would like to investigate through nursing research. For this assignment, review current quantitative research articles and provide a critical evaluation on that research through an annotated bibliography (a brief summary and analysis of the journal article reviewed).
A total of four annotated bibliographies are to be submitted (not to exceed one page each). The articles must come from nursing scholarly literature and may not be older than 5 years since publication. Please note that the articles must be research based and reflect a quantitative methodology. Web pages, magazines, textbooks, and other books are not acceptable.

Possible shortcomings or bias in the work
Conclusions or observations reached by the author
Summary as to why this research lends evidence to support the potential problem identified specific to your role option.
