Topic: Nursing Research Critique Writing Assignment

Order Description

1. To better understand methodological features of nursing research.
2. To systematically appraise the strengths and limitations of a nursing research article.
3. To determine the credibility and usability of the research to nursing practice.
4. To strengthen critical thinking and writing skills.

Write a comparative research critique of two quantitative nursing research studies that use a theoretical framework from one of the following nursing theories: Meleis:

Transition Theory, the Roy Adaptation Model, or Pender’s Health Promotion Model. The research study may be from any area of nursing that interests you as long as the

framework is from one of the above theorists.
Section I: (1-2 pages) Use Box 5.2 on pages 112-114 as a guide to your critique. Be sure to address the critiquing questions listed for each aspect of the research

study. Answers to these questions should be in paragraph format and not merely yes and no responses.
Section II: (2-3 pages) Evaluate the usefulness of the study to nursing practice.
APA format required. Please include/attach a copy of the articles you critique.
Due: Wednesday 10/1. Please submit via Blackboard.
Tips for Success:
Read the article at least twice: first to understand the article and second to critique the study. You may want to search databases for other research critiques as

examples of how a critique is written.
As this will be graded using the USJ Target rubric, your goal in the first section should be to offer very detailed and accurate summaries of the articles,

highlighting key points that will come into play later on. In Section II, make sure you evaluate the applicability of the studies to your practice as a nurse. Highest

grades will be reserved for those evaluations that can engage the complexity of the issue by using perspectives from both articles to form a thoughtful perspective.

Remember, I don’t want to see either/or thinking, e.g., article 1 is entirely better than article 2, or both of these articles have no value or great value. I want to

see how you can formulate a thoughtful conclusion using both articles, recognizing where they are valuable in parts and to degrees, and where they are not valuable in

parts and to varying degrees.
