Article Appraisal

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Use the information below to help you know which section of the article to use to answer the questions in the template:

  • Introduction and its subsections have the purpose or WHY study done.
  • Methods section and its subsections contains HOW the study was done.
  • Results, Discussion and Conclusions section have WHAT was found.


  • In week 2 you selected a topic of interest and formulated a question about that topic for your Evidence-Based Practice Assignment.
  • In week 4 you searched the literature on your week two topic and submitted three articles for approval towards building your Evidence-Based Practice Assignment.
  • In week 6 you are completing an appraisal of the two articles, which were the quantitative and qualitative research study reports you were approved for in week 4. The third article you appraise is an evidence-based practice clinical guideline that is related to your week two topic.
  • Module 6 readings are a continuation from week 5 that includes chapters 13 and 14 on Appraising Research Evidence and Clinical Practice Guidelines. Please refer to these chapters on how to complete an appraisal using templates provided here in instructions. Appendix A to G in your book gives you examples of completing a template appraisal form.
  • For the first template in week 6 you will choose either a Qualitative or a Quantitative Review (Please do not complete both Quantitative and Qualitative Appraisal). Your second article is a Systematic Review Appraisal, and your 3rd article is an Evidence Based Clinical Practice Guideline.
  • Make sure you receive approval from faculty in week 4 for the article you use to complete either the Qualitative or Quantitative Review and for the Systematic Review. There are hyperlinks to these templates in week 6 instructions. Do not create your own word document with answers.
  • Each section of the template is required to be completed as this assignment builds on your Evidence Based Practice Project. Each template has a citation that must be submitted and in APA 7th ed format. Answers to questions in Synopsis sections are required (see template examples mentioned above in your book). Credibility section Yes/No answers are also required. The Comments area is also required and should be at least 1-3 sentences noting how this article relates to your nursing issue topic from week 2 and what you thought was significant.
  • You will be using these articles again in week 8 Model and Barrier Paper and in your week 9 Evidence Based Practice Project Poster.
  • Please review the rubric closely and proof your work reviewing instructions before you submit.

Note: Please include a PDF or Word copy of your approved article from Week 4 with your submission.

The chosen topic and PICOT will be used for your Week 9 poster assignment. It guided your article searches in Week 4 which are to be used in completing your appraisals in Week 6. Your topic will guide your week 8 paper also on addressing barriers.
