Developing the proficiency to locate, read, and critically analyze research literature for bias, opinion, quality of evidence, and appropriateness to its target audience is essential to your success in this masterâ€™s program and as a nurse engaged in advanced practice. Throughout your degree program, you will use evidence as you develop research papers and program interventions, and evaluate health care problems. When searching for evidence or exploring the research literature, it is important to look for current articlesâ€”articles that have been written within the past five years. That is not to imply that seminal work should not be considered as well. When using research literature that is older than five years, it should feature ground-breaking evidence that justifies its inclusion.
