Being able to identify proper research literature is primary to developing your end of program capstone project.
Access Argosy’s electronic library databases and conduct a search for nursing research literature that is relevant to your anticipated capstone focus. Develop an annotated bibliography of this literature and identify two research articles, one qualitative and one quantitative, that are specific to your capstone focus.
Note: For the annotative bibliography, the 10 articles need to be listed in alphabetical order and all key ideas need to be summarized and evaluated. Articles used for the Research Article Analysis Form should be clearly identified using APA format and including the database source.
