Week 2 Discussion Prompt NURS 350 Why is it important to conduct a quality literature review? Characterize the four major types of reviews. What are the essential components of a quality literature review? According to our text, a quality literature review helps to identify any gaps in current research, analyze areas that may require changes, increases overall awareness of about evidence-based practice, and increases knowledge on a specific topic (Schmidt & Brown, 2018). Failure to conduct a quality literature review can lead to several problems such as a theory that is not grounded, weak approaches to problem solving, and overall failure to expand knowledge (Sewell, Maggio, & Artino, 2016). In addition, a quality literature review can help ensure that standards are met, prevent duplicative research, and helps the researcher be confident in what they are analyzing. The four major types of reviews include narrative reviews, integrative reviews, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
