1. Write a 3 – 4 page paper, not including title and reference pages:  Literature Review (Credentialing Of Family Nurse Practitioners)
a. Identify and provide background information on your topic on population health issue. Use at least 2 peer reviewed sources (within the last 5 years) from the literature when describing the issue.
b. Conduct a literature review on the impact of your topic of interest on population health, finding at least 4 peer-reviewed sources (within the last 5 years). Look for literature that details how the topic of interest is affecting our overall population health (not just individual health) and supports the topic. These should be different sources than were used in direction 1a. A written literature review is a synthesis of all the information you can find on a specific topic. It begins with a physical review of the articles you find in the library. The NSU librarian is available to assist students in accessing databases and the required steps when conducting a literature review.
c. Now that you have reviewed the literature and selected relevant articles you must write the actual review. Summarize your findings from your literature review regarding the impact of the topic of interest on population health. Synthesize (blend) the 4 articles into a written presentation of all the information you found. Remember to give proper credit and cite the information found in each article using APA format.
