Help with my Evidence Based Practice Paper?

  1. 0
    Could someone please help me with my paper I have to write..
    First off it has to a summary of a nursing article/research. I cannot find anything online that is nursing, it's all written by a doctor, etc.

    The article has to have a method and an abstract, I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THAT MEANS?
    And the summary of the article has to include ADPIE and the nursing process, and I'm not really sure how to tie that in...

    I'm doing rheumatoid arthritis, if anyone could help me find a good article, I'd be so greatful! Thank you!

    Does your school library subscribe to CINAHL? That is a great data base to search for nursing journal articles.
