NRSG 504: Finding and Integrating Knowledge for Evidence-Informed Practice

In this guide...

This guide is designed for the rapid review assignment for NRSG 504 at UBC's Okanagan Campus, Summer 2019. As part of the course you will be required to produce an evidence report as the major assignment in the course. Fortunately, the assignment is structured so that you have an opportunity to submit portions of the assignment, get feedback, and then revise those portions prior to the final submission.
