- English language
- NOT an Evidence-Based Care Sheet or CINAHL Guide
- Published in the past five years
- Contains evidence to support a nursing practice in your practice area
Summarize this article in one paragraph. Explain why you selected this article. Provide an APA reference for this article.
Remember to credit an assigned reading or the lesson, in addition to your article selection.
