MSN Capstone: Library Resources

This guide is designed to assist Master of Science in Nursing or Graduate Entry-Master of Science in Nursing (GEM) students with the research components related to their MSN Capstone requirement.

Types of Field Experiences

The Field Experience involves working with a faculty member on a research activity for any of the three options: 

  • Scholarly experience 
  • Clinical presentation (at an academic/professional conference or other venue)
  • Manuscript preparation (for submission to a peer-reviewed journal or other academic/professional publication)

The student's role in the Field Experience often includes conducting a literature review on the research topic or research question. See the Conducting a Literature Review section for more information on searching the literature.
