Introduction

NURS 3001 Scholarly Paper Guidelines and Rubric Winter, 2018

Guidelines

The purpose of this scholarly paper is to engage students with the concepts covered in the course in an effort to analyze one such concept and contextualize it into clinical practice. Students will critically engage in the analysis of one of the course concepts by conducting literature searches, literature syntheses, concept analyses and evaluation, application/implication to practice, and critical reflection. Based on such analysis and reflection, students will explore emergent strategies to enhance their own personal and professional growth.

Assignment Instructions

  1. Select one or more of the course concepts. If you elect to work with more than one concept, ensure that you are not simply analyzing several distinct and disjointed concepts, and that you analyze them as overlapping and related concepts. While this is notably challenging, it is not impossible and if done well, it can culminate in some excellent work.

  2. Conduct a recent and concise literature review on the selected concept. Note that this review should be brief enough to take up about one section or so in the paper.

  3. Using scholarly references, conduct a concept analysis of the selected concept(s). Note that there are many concept analysis frameworks in the nursing literature. E.g. Walker & Avant concept analysis method (several readings in this course make use of this method). You may choose a formal framework such as that of Walker & Avant’s to conduct your concept analysis; however, it is not necessary to do so. You may conduct a concept analysis if you address the following questions:

    1. How is the concept defined in the literature?

    2. Does the concept have specific characteristics or attributes? If so, what are they?

    3. Under what conditions does the concept come into existence? Under what

      conditions is the concept eliminated? For example, if analyzing Pain, you might ask: What are the definitions of pain? Are there different types of pain? If so, what are they? How do people experience pain? Are there cultural aspects? If so, what are they?

    4. How can pain be alleviated, in all its types? Should it be alleviated? How can it be integrated as a part of human life?

  4. Provide examples in support of your analysis/argument while reflecting on your own experience (personal and professional). Ensure that you devote a substantial part of the paper to the application of the concept to your practice, in whatever way you see appropriate. For example, the presence of the concept in your patient, its absence, its treatment (if treatable), your difficulties with it and with recognizing it/managing it, and so on.

  5. Conclude with some final thoughts, learnings, and impact on your practice and personal development.

  6. Word limit: 1500 words excluding title page and reference page.
