    What is the actual assignment?

    I would start by narrowing down the topic to something pretty specific. For example, you could write about how bar-coding for medication administration has decreased errors.

    Then, I would utilize your school's subscription to online nursing journals to find some recent evidence based articles. If you don't know how to do this, talk to the library.

    Thank you very much for replying. The assignment is to write an 8-10 page, apa style, research paper on "any topic directly related to the field of nursing," using only peer reviewed journal articles and books.

    i have narrowed my topic down to focusing on the "nine rights of med. administration." I think I am going to touch on individual and system factors that contibute to each type of error specifically, risk factors, consequenses and interventions. What do you think?

    When we wrote our research papers, we were told to do some research first before picking a topic. Have you found enough articles to support this topic?

    I thought their were only six rights?

    What are the different types of medication errors?

    I'm not sure your topic is specific enough yet.
