Types of Evidence-based Nursing Assignments

Position Statements-This type of assignment asks the student to formulate a precise position statement on a certain subject. The position statement should represent current nursing practice and policies, reflect student perspective, and be supported by recent research on the subject.

Reflective Reports-Reflective essays frequently ask students to think critically and consider how evidence-based nursing is applied in clinical settings.

Care plan-Care planning requires that students critically read through and evaluate a patient’s condition. Then, care objectives, the optimal nursing interventions, and justifications supported by evidence-based practice have to be described.

Clinical Reasoning Reports-These reports give students a thorough clinical situation and ask them to conduct clinical evaluations, analyse clinical data, and determine the best course of nursing action using evidence-based practice.
