Navigating Nurse Burnout: A Literature Search Expedition

Nurse Burnout

Literature Search Assignment #1 (50 points)

This assignment is intended to facilitate student’s search for current, peer-reviewed literature to inform the Leadership paper. Each step of this assignment will help you retrieve the highest quality references.

  1. What is the topic of your Leadership paper? _________________________________________
  1. Search the literature: The purpose of this part of the assignment is to retrieve a total of 5 current articles that relate to the topic of your Leadership paper and that will be synthesized in the Review of Literature section of your paper. (5 points)
    1. To maximize your literature search, it’s best to use keywords that are recognized by the databases you plan to search.
      1. In CINAHL (database), the keywords are called ‘subject headings.’ Here is a link for more information:
      2. In PubMed/Medline, the keywords are called MeSH headings. Here is a link for more information:
    2. Identify 2 or 3 of the most important words or main ideas. These are your keywords which you will use to guide your search of the literature.
    1. Identify at least 2 online databases from the USC Aiken library that you will search. One must be CINAHL. (5 points)
Databases Chosen Rationale For Using the Chosen Database

(don’t say because it’s required. What types of articles would you find in the database?)

    1. Construct a search strategy that you will use to locate the 5 required articles for the Leadership paper. You must complete a minimum of 5 searches. (20 points – 4 pts for each search)


      1. AND narrows a search by requiring that both terms be in the results
      2. OR broadens a search by scanning the literature for either term
      3. NOT narrows a search by eliminating undesired aspects of your topic
      4. * truncates the term and searches for any ending
        1. Example: Catheter could be searched using cath*
Database Searched Search Terms Used with Boolean Operators Number of Results Number of Useful Articles Located
    1. Discussion: Reassess your search strategies based on your results. Describe the changes you made if your search yielded >100 or < 10 articles? (5 points)
  1. The goal is to retrieve articles that are both current and scholarly. To be considered scholarly, articles must be peer-reviewed (published in peer-reviewed journals). Ironically, Letters to the Editor, Commentary columns, or Editorials (although published in peer-reviewed journals) are not peer-reviewed. Also, Board of Nursing newsletters are not peer-reviewed. Therefore, none should be used to inform your Leadership paper.
  1. Write a reference list of the 5 articles in correct APA format (per the 7th edition) at the end of this assignment. Articles that are not current or scholarly will lose points. (10 points)
  1. Submit full-text copies of all 5 articles retrieved from this initial literature search. (5 points)
  1. Submit this assignment to the Assignments tab on Blackboard. Full-text articles should be submitted electronically through Blackboard.
