You are to locate and document research databases
that relate to a significant clinical nursing issue of your choice. The
research databases may be labeled as such, or may be collections of research
studies and reports. You are not looking for research or articles, you are
looking for new databases.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcome:

CO 1:  Examine the sources of
evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO #7)

Due Date: You are to identify a
total of five research databases (or collections of research-based evidence) that
are relevant to a significant clinical nursing issue that is important to you.
Submit the descriptions using the form provided in Doc Sharing to the Week 3
Dropbox by 11:59 p.m. Sunday (MT).


The assignment is worth a total of 175 points. Please see the grading
rubric for details.


Choose a topic of interest to you
that is a significant clinical nursing issue. Please note that the databases
you identify could be useful sources of information for your Capstone project
in NR451, so choose your topic thoughtfully.

Download the NR439_Research_Database_Form
from Doc Sharing and type information about each database directly onto the
form. Your paper does NOT need to follow APA formatting; however, you are expected
to use correct grammar, spelling, syntax, and write in complete sentences.

Save the file by clicking Save as
and adding your last name, e.g., NR439_Research Database_Smith.docx.

Describe your topic of interest. This
is worth 15 points.

Locate a total of five research
databases  related to your topic. Each
research database description is worth 30 points. You may search for these in
various locations, e.g., the Internet or the CCN Library.  You may NOT choose the databases that are
already familiar to you – MEDLINE, PUBMED (which also indexes MEDLINE), GOOGLE
SCHOLAR, and CINAHL. Instead, you are expected to expand your knowledge
of evidence-based sources. Places to help you begin include your textbook,
which lists databases and websites that report research. The Chamberlain online
library (  gives you access to several databases and
provide tutorials for searching. Government sites such as those at the National
Institutes of Health offer collections of research on a variety of subjects. The
key to choosing the databases is that each contains research-based evidence
that also pertains to your topic of interest. Again you are looking for new
databases to use in the future and not articles related to your nursing
clinical issue.

Review each database to gather
information to create a description for the assignment. Each description must:

identify the title of the research

describe the location of the research
database in a way that a reader could find it. This should be the URL. This URL
should take you to the home page of the database.

describe the research database.

source. Include the purpose of the database and the subject matter it covers.
This may be two to three sentences; and

the database relates to your topic of interest. This may be an two or three
