DQ Identify two GCU Library scholarly databases that will help you find the best research articles to support your capstone project change proposal

Discuss why these two databases are better than
Google Scholar or a general Internet search.

Throughout the RN to BSN curriculum and the weekly paper writing assignments, I have
discovered that there are several approaches to study evidence-based publications and journals.
GCU Library and CINAHL Complete are the two sites that I have found to be the most useful for
me, and I have utilized both sites for all of my courses, in addition to the Cochrane Library and
Google Scholar, as well as other resources. I believe CINAHL to be more user-friendly than
Cochrane, which has six databases of material to browse through. When it comes to information,
the GCU library boasts a plethora of resources, including over 92 databases and more than
70,000 full-text publications that are nicely arranged (GCU,2018). As a student, I have
discovered that GCU and CINAHL provide a range of publications on health care peer reviews
and case studies, which I have found to be really useful in finishing projects. Overall, I believe
that every website has advantages and disadvantages depending on what you are searching for
and whether or not you can access the information. However, the disadvantage I see with Google
Scholar is that most complete texts are not free, and you may have to pay for the information you
need. Additionally, the sources of the information you need may not be readily evident, even
when you are reading scholarly academic peer review publications. However, I believe that
having a large number of options is a positive development.

Thank you for your educational post. To add to your post, CINAHL is the most
comprehensive database of nursing and allied health literature available. Nursing journals
and publications from the National League for Nursing and the American Nurses
Association are accessible via CINAHL. Full-text for nursing and allied journals can be
accessed through CINAHL making it safer and reliable for research and evidenced-based
projects because it has been peer-reviewed, clinically tried and you easily limit your
search to make sure the result fits the research topic you are looking for. It also helps you
find journals published by a nurse within 2 years. CINAHL and any other database are
better than google because you may be requested to pay for the full text of an article if
you search for it on Google or Yahoo. However, there is no fee for using the library
databases. Even if you locate an item they don't have full-text access to via their
databases, you may obtain it through an interlibrary loan, which is free of charge.

Thank you Stacy for your comprehensive discussion on scholarly databases for use
provided by the GCU library. The GCU library has several databases that one can
leverage to conduct their research and get evidence-based practice articles for the
capstone project (GCU, n.d). As you mention, the CINAHL Complete is a database that
one can use to get resources because it offers full text articles and peer-reviewed journal
articles with researched evidence for utilization when doing capstone projects. As you
mention, all these databases are user-centered and friendly (EBSCO, 2022). The
databases boast of a vast amount of resources that include over 60,000 full-text
publications and works that are arranged in an orderly and chronological manner for easy
access, use, and referencing. These databases have their merits and demerits compared to
Google Scholar in various aspects. For instance, the full text articles come with complete
citations compared to Google Scholar that does not offer correct references with DOIs.
Despite the advantages that the databases offer, it is essential to still leverage Google
Scholar where necessary.

Research articles and research is extremely significant in the nursing field and practice as
a whole. Nurses work directly with patients on a daily basis and because of this, they are
the most aware of the needs of the patient. They are also the most informed about what
procedures and policies favor the quality of patient care given and what needs to be
adjusted to better cater to their needs. Rigorous research is extremely important for
nursing students and nurses to keep up with at every stage of their career. This is because
it advances nursing practice like aiding in the shaping of healthcare policy which leads to
overall advancements in health all around the globe not just within the United States. For
example, the National Institute of Nursing Research is dedicated to finding new
knowledge on disease prevention, disability, illness symptom management, and
improvement of end-of-life care ("Importance of research in Nursing: UNCW online,"
2016). In terms of the application of research in the modern world, the importance of
research can be seen with the occurrence of the pandemic of COVID-19. The world
experienced a complete lockdown and incredible spike of deaths in the past two years due
to a virus that has no cure and still does not hold a cure rather than a vaccine that aims to
slow and decrease the spread and prevalence of the disease. It is due to research that a
vaccine could be created and that nurses and other medical professionals found out what
treatment methods and care plans work best to treat this disease.

CINAHL is the Cumulative Index for Nursing and Allied Health. It contains fundamental
content for nursing and other allied health professions, such as physical and rehabilitation

therapy. Some of this content cannot be found in PubMed. Cochrane Library includes
Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), Cochrane Database of
Systematic Reviews (CDSR), and Cochrane Clinical Answers. The Wiley platform is
appropriate for systematic and scoping reviews as well as other advanced searches. Also
there is Allied and Complementary Medicine Database (AMED), a unique bibliographic
database that covers a selection of journals in complementary medicine, palliative care,
and several professions allied to medicine, including physiotherapy, occupational
therapy, rehabilitation, speech and language therapy, and podiatry. (University of Toronto
Libraries, 2021)

Hello! We want to ensure that we are as utilizing up to date information and are using the
best credible sources as possible. When we are conducting research, we want to ensure
that we are utilizing the best up to date research. Our patients depend on us to provide
them with safe care. By ensuring that we are using evidence-based practices, we can
improve our patient’s morality and mortality rates. If we not using evidence-based
practices, our patients are at risk for infection and even death. By using reputable sources
that Grand Canyon University provides, we are able to utilize scholarly sources. Two of
the data bases that Grand Canyon University library utilizes would be PubMed and also
Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL). The data bases
that are available, allows us to gather all of the information we need. If we are just using
the internet, we are probably getting false information. Some sites just as Wikipedia
provide false information. Others are able to change the information on the site and
people are being provided with false information. At my place of work, we utilize
Lippincott advisor. This provides us with the best up to date current research when we are
performing procedures, such as the insertion of a urinary catheter. I agree with you that
every website has its advantages and disadvantages. Some websites provide better
information than others, but we want to ensure that the information we are obtaining is
from a reputable source.

Thank you for your educational post. In addition to what you elaborated on databases,
PubMed is a good database when researching articles or literature in medicine or
biological sciences. PubMed stores abstracts and bibliographic details of more than 30
million papers and provides full-text links to the publisher sites or links to the free PDF
on PubMed Central (PMC (Grand Canyon University Library, n.d.)

I too have interacted with Google Scholar and one of the reasons why I do not
appreciate it is that there is a high likelihood of using non-scholarly sources.
Unlike other databases where you can filter sources based on their type, Google
scholar has minimal filtering options. The end result, therefore, is that you are
likely to use a scholarly source that is not updated and this is most likely going to
affect the credibility. It is also for this reason that I recommend using a ‘type’
filter in the search for sources. For instance, some databases may bring up results
for books, scholarly papers and non-scholarly sources. Other databases even let
you filter out peer reviewed sources and this is quite important in helping the
researcher get the highest and most credible evidence available. Filtering the
results based on sources will ensure that one gets the scholarly and peer reviewed
sources that they need.
Another important skill that we all need to learn is the use of Boolean operators.
These operators come in the form of conjunction or punctuation marks. Using
Boolean operators empowers the researcher to narrow down their results and also

achieve a higher specificity with regards to the results that they pull out
(Gusenbauer & Haddaway, 2020). Most importantly these operators will also
lessen the amount of time you have to spend going through the various results that
have been established, in order to identify a more desirable result. I intend to use
all of these strategies during the capstone project.

I must admit Goggle scholar has been one of my go to search engines in the past and during this
program. During my studies at Grand Canyon university, it has equipped me with very much
needed knowledge base and insight into different avenues of information to perform research,
not only for school but for my professional career. I have found Pub Med and The GCU library
database to be beneficial and of great assistant when performing research about multiple topics in
regard to nursing practice. The GCU library catalogue offers information to assist with writing
paper correctly. It also provides topics that relates to nursing studies. It a has a special section for
nurses, along with additional assistances for capstones tasks. I think that this will be valuable
resource for me in the completion of this class.
PubMed is another information source that I have found very useful. The National Center for
Biotechnology Information (NCBI), and U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), as well as
the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This database has a large spectrum of resources (that is
supportive) and has been in existence for some time. Another advantage of PubMed is the
expanded search filters that can be used. You can screen the foundations by date and even the
category of publication that you are searching for.
