 NUR 513 Analyze Models to Implement and Sustain EBP.  (EPSLO 7; SLO 4)

This course has Turnitin® fully integrated into the course dropbox. This means that you should only submit your assignments to the dropbox below. Please do not submit your assignment directly to

Once submitted, your assignment will be evaluated by Turnitin® automatically. You will be able to view an Originality Report within minutes of your first submission that will show how much of your work has been identified as similar to other sources such as websites, textbooks, or other student papers. Use your Originality Report as a learning tool to identify areas of your assignment that you may not have cited appropriately. The overall match can be no higher than 15%, with any one match no higher than 2%. You may resubmit your assignment through this dropbox as many times as you need to check to see if you have made improvements, until the due date of the assignment. However, once you have made your first submission, you will need to wait 24 hours after each subsequent submission to receive a new Originality Report. Plan accordingly as you draft your assignment. Once the due date has passed, your assignment submission will be considered final.

In this assignment, you will identify a nursing problem, investigate available evidence, and either present a plan for practice change or a proposal for further research. You will use the Stetler Model as a guide. This paper has two parts, outlined below. The Stetler Model is explained on pp. 384-389 of your textbook. You may use material from your discussion posts in this paper, however, you will need to revise them as necessary to meet the objectives of this assignment.

This activity will address the following module outcomes:

MO2: Analyze models to implement and sustain EBP.  (EPSLO 7; SLO 4)

MO5: Explain the role of the master’s-prepared nurse in translating evidence for practice changes in an inter-professional team. (EPSLO 2; SLO 1)

Part I: Analysis of Evidence: Due Week 10

In Part I of the assignment, you will use Phase I, II, and III of the Stetler Model. These steps are described in further detail below. Please use the grading rubric to guide your work.

Phase I: Preparation

Define the nursing problem and present your research question. Make sure you describe the context of the problem, and why you think practice should change. Clearly identify the target population and potential benefits the population may reap from the proposed practice change.

Phase II: Validation

Assemble a body of evidence supporting your proposal for practice change. Perform a literature review to gather research evidence. Critique the merit of each article using the information in Chapter 5 & 6 in Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt (2019) as a guide. Present relevant cultural and contextual factors, your own individual experience and degree of expertise in this area, and preferences and values of the population.

Use the qualitative Preview the document [XLSX, file size 21 KB] and quantitativePreview the document [XLSX, file size 21 KB] research score cards to help organize your work and develop your own thoughts about the merits of each study. It is not necessary to complete a critique if one of your sources is a clinical guideline. A completed research score card must be submitted for each article when you submit your paper. Submit all research score cards to the separate dropbox, using the appropriate score card for each study, labeled M6A1: Research Critique Forms Submission Only.

You should have a minimum of seven sources (external evidence) that provide evidence about your proposed change in practice.

All seven external sources must be primary sources, robust systematic reviews, or clinical guidelines derived form a large data base.

Five of these sources must be from peer-reviewed nursing journals.

Two sources can be from other disciplines (if appropriate), but must also be peer reviewed.

You may use a clinical guideline as one of your sources, if appropriate.

Phase III: Comparative Evaluation/Decision Making

Synthesize the results of the evidence. Logically present and analyze the evidence, comparing and contrasting the results. This is not an annotated bibliography or a series of summaries of each article. It is a synthesis of pertinent information from the evidence. Evaluate all of the available evidence (external sources, relevant cultural and contextual factors, your own individual experience and degree of expertise in this area, and preferences and values of the population) and determine if it provides sufficient evidence to support an evidence based  practice change.

This portion of the paper should be 8-10 pages in length (not including title page or references) and is due Week 10. You will receive a grade on this portion of the paper and instructor feedback. You should review the feedback, and incorporate it into Part II. Your grade on Part II will be partially dependent on revisions made to Part I.

Late Assignment Policy

All assignments (e.g. papers, projects, etc.) are expected to be submitted on time. If unplanned or extenuating* circumstances prevent on time submission, then students should follow these guidelines:

Contact your instructor with details about the extenuating circumstances if you are requesting permission to submit late.

If a student submits an assignment late without permission, it will not be graded until the student communicates with the instructor. If there is no communication with the instructor before the assignment grade is due, a grade of zero will be assigned.

The first late submission in the course will be accepted and graded without penalty up to 5 days after the due date. After 5 days of no submission, the instructor may assess a late penalty of 5 percent per day.

All subsequent late assignments may be assessed a late penalty of 5 percent per day, starting on day one. There will be no 5-day grace period.

This policy does not pertain to discussion posts. Please review the course specific discussion rubric for further guidance.

Please note that course structure may result in exceptions to the late policy. In this case, the instructor will either clarify or arrange guidelines for submission of assignments with the student(s).

No work will be accepted after the final day of the term unless an official course extension has been granted. Excelsior College Extension Policy (Links to an external site.).

Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer. For those assignments that are not written essays and require uploading images or PowerPoint slides, please follow uploading guidelines provided by your instructor.
