College of Nursing

The writing assignment below was developed by the Spring 2012 WAC Fellows from UCF’s College of Nursing: Victoria Loerzel, Jon Decker, and Patricia Weinstein. The assignment is for the course NUR 3165 Nursing Research and is centered around the idea of scaffolded writing tasks which students complete throughout the semester. The project culminates in the writing of a research article critique piece and recommendations for nursing practice based on that research. The assignment reflects the notion of “evidence-based” practice which is a guiding principle of modern nursing education.
