An annotated bibliography is a combination of the words annotation and bibliography. An annotation is a set of notes, comments, or critiques. A bibliography is a list of references that helps a reader identify sources of information. An annotated bibliography, then, is a list of references that not only identifies the sources of information but also includes information such as a summary, a critique or analysis, and an application of those sources’ information.
Module 2 Assignment 2 (due in Week 5) will be a paper on nurse leadership during transitions of care for two selected entities. In preparation for that paper, you will develop an Annotated Bibliography and submit it to your Instructor for feedback.
- Select a transition of care (hospital, specialty care, rehabilitation, nursing home, homebound, etc.).
- Use the Walden Library and other reputable academic resources to locate 5 scholarly resources on nurse leadership during this transition of care. Identify what constitutes effectiveness (i.e., cost, care management, best/effective providers, best setting, sustaining outcomes) for this transition of care within each setting. What evidence supports this transition of care or transition of care intervention?
- Review the Writing Center resources on annotated bibliographies and scholarly writing. Also review the Module 2 Assignment 1 Rubric for specific details about the requirements for your annotated bibliography.
- Create an annotated bibliography of the 5 scholarly resources you located on your selected transition of care. Follow the annotated bibliography format presented in the Writing Center resource.
