Week 3 Discussion: The Literature Review and Searching for Evidence

I’m trying to learn for my Nursing class and I’m stuck. Can you help?


This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).

  • CO 1: Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO 7)
  • CO 2: Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (PO 4 & 8)
  • CO 4: Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and clinical significance related to evidence-based practice. (PO 4 & 8)


You must access the following article to answer the questions:

Baker, N., Taggart, H., Nivens, A. & Tillman, P. (2015). Delirium: Why are nurses confused? MedSurg Nursing, 24(1), 15-22. permalink (Links to an external site.)

  • Locate the literature review section. Summarize using your own words from one of the study/literature findings. Be sure to identify which study you are summarizing.
  • Discuss how the author’s review of literature (studies) supported the research purpose/problem. Share something that was interesting to you as you read through the literature review section.
  • Describe one strategy that you learned that would help you create a strong literature review/search for evidence. Share your thoughts on the importance of a thorough review of the literature.
