Do you want to learn how to be better at reading journal articles? Do you enjoy research and want to learn more about how nurses play a part in research? Are you looking to have enriching and fun discussions with other nursing students? Well, we will be doing just that at our journal clubs!
The CNSA Nursing Science Committee is introducing its first monthly journal club. The first topic is - “Treatments for COVID-19” - and the meeting will be held on March 6th at 6 PM. Special guest speaker, Jennifer Suhd-Brondstatter, BSN, MAEd, RN, PHN, CCRN, who is an Infection Prevention Coordinator at UC Davis will be joining us for our first journal club. Look forward to more special guest speakers joining us in our future journal clubs!
At the beginning of each journal club, we will be having a short educational portion on research literacy. For the remainder of the meeting, we will be reviewing and discussing an assigned journal article with other members of the club and break down each portion of the article piece-by-piece. By doing so, we hope to accomplish our goal of “promoting science literacy among nursing students, encourage discussions about current topics in nursing science, and promote the image of nurses as scientists.”
Here are the details of the first article of our journal club:
Article title: Treatment for COVID-19: an overview Published by: European Journal of Pharmacology on December 15, 2020
