There is not a proposed page limit for the paper.


Part 1 – Evidence review and synthesis

  • List the names of the databases you searched (Less than 5 years)
    • Search Tracker turned in that includes PICOT question and shows path for searches.
    • Summarize “keeper” studies in the evaluation table, Columns of the Evaluation Table contain appropriate information from which decisions can be made.
    • Authors’ names, date of publication (included in the citation).
    • Quality and level of evidence
    • How significant (or not) the evidence is and why you think so. How are these articles relevant to change practice or policy for your specific practice site and population? If a study is not significant and you have included it, mention how your clinical expertise was involved in this decision.
    • Your summary the synthesis section should clearly indicate the intervention you plan to use in your project proposal.
  • Purpose of the project
  • Include intervention & Theoretical framework
  • Clinical questions; How the clinical question indicates the type of study that will be done (quasi-experimental vs. experimental). Describe the type of study and clearly describe it.


  • Study design: Briefly describe the study design indicated by the question (experimental, quasi-experimental, descriptive).
  • Setting/sample: Briefly describe the setting for the study, who your study participants will be, and how these participants will be chosen. Will random sampling or a sample of convenience be used?
  • Confidentiality: How will you protect the confidentiality of your participants?
  • Procedures/intervention: Discuss the intervention you will implement and the procedures you will use in enough detail that others could replicate the study.
  • Instruments/scales and measurement of outcomes: Describe the instruments you will use to measure changes and whether they are quantitative, qualitative, or of a mixed design. If they have been tested previously, include reliability and validity data.
  • Data collection: Explain plans for data collection including:
    • Methods of collection, i.e., interviews, paper and pencil testing, etc.
    • Testing frequency. Will you gather baseline data prior to the intervention? Will you employ repeated measures such as pre- and posttests?

Data analysis

  • State your clinical question.
  • Briefly state the intervention you will implement. While these two items are not typically included in Part 5, doing so will help orient faculty so appropriate feedback can be provided.
  • What outcomes will be analyzed and how they will be analyzed?
  • Describe the statistical analysis you will do relating this to the data collection tools you plan to use.
  • Indicate the types of demographic data you plan to report on your participants as well.
  • Briefly discuss the outcomes expected should this project be implemented.
  • Identify your stakeholders by job title and how their participation was key to the project.
  • Briefly discuss potential barriers to project implementation that stakeholders may present. Include strategies to prevent or address these barriers.

Running head: ADVANTAGES OF SIMULATION Advantages of Simulation in the Nursing Curriculum Jesika Barbee NSG 6999 Graduate Project in Nursing Dr. Terry September 2, 2017 1 ADVANTAGES OF SIMULATION 2 Practice Issue In the healthcare setting, the role of a professional nurse requires not only caring for the patient, but utilization of critical thinking skills to incorporate making the best decisions for the patient. Educators include critical thinking exercises in the curriculum to assist students in developing knowledge, confidence, and the critical thinking skills needed to make effective decisions (Eyikara & Baykara, 2017). One way that this can be done effectively is implementation of a sound clinical simulation lab. Over the past decade, there has been a significant increase in the use of simulation labs to provide practice for the students. There are many advantages to simulation-based training allowing students to get immediate feedback from the instructor, individualize learning for the student, and repetitive practice in the simulation lab. Many different studies have been completed to show the importance of simulation in the nursing curriculum. In one study completed, there was a control group (no simulation) compared to a group that had traditional lecture paired with case based scenarios using simulation. Out of the 101 students that were included in this “trial,” the control group scored lower than the intervention group on patient assessment. The study determined that case based learning helped to standardize the process because the students were allotted time to practice repetitively prior to testing (Raurell-Torreda, et al., 2015). Advantages of Simulation in Nursing
Issue Relevance This issue addressed for this research proposal is the advantages of incorporating lab simulation in the nursing curriculum. Proper utilization of the simulation lab will allow the students to have hands-on practice before even stepping foot into the clinical setting. It has been shown through many different studies that the use of simulation is very beneficial to the students. Having case based scenarios illicit the students to have to do complete a full head to toe ADVANTAGES OF SIMULATION 3 assessment and the instructor can be watching behind the glass. I believe that getting the full use of the mannequins will be in the best interest for the students. Being in the educator role, this could have a great impact on my future students that I will be teaching. ADVANTAGES OF SIMULATION 4 References: Eyikara, E., & Baykara, Z. G. (2017).
