seeking help writing an evidence based nurse paper
- 0Jul 16, '09 by thekidWe were given a few guidelines, the format desired, number of references needed, and instructed to write on a topic/area of nursing care that has changed since we've been out of practice (referring to inactive nurses re-entering work force).
I understand the format to be used but I'm stuck..I was going to possibly write about diabetic care i.e. changing injection sites/using same site.
Are there any online guides on how to write such a paper? When I was back in school we just did care plans

- Cochrane library: http://www.cochrane.org/
1. Decide on my topic
2. Find half the required article from the period you were practising nursing (can limit PubMed/Ovid search by year to find articles).
3. Find the other half of articles from the period since you stopped nursing.
4. Write a summary of the literature evidence (then and now).
5. Compare and contrast.
6. Explain how strong the evidence is.
Of course, it depends on the format your teacher wants.
