The critical appraisal of a qualitative research report should demonstrate that the student is capable of analyzing a selected research report and producing an appraisal suitable for informing advanced practice nursing. The primary focus of this assignment should be on appraisal of evidence to implement in clinical practice. Your instructor will post the qualitative journal article for you to review.
This paper should be written in paragraph form and in APA format. This assignment is worth 15% of your final grade. There will be a 5-point deduction for each day late.
You should use the following outline for your review. Each subject heading must be addressed and the questions below each heading are intended to serve as guides for you as you go through the article appraisal. When answering these questions, it is important that you do so in a manner that is cohesive and flows well rather than simply answering the questions in a disjointed manner.

Statement of the problem

• Does the problem statement build a cogent and persuasive argument for the new study?
