Is an integrative review a primary research study that I can use for Nursing 39000?
An integrative review is not a primary research study. It is a secondary source. Integrative reviews summarize past literature. In an integrative review, you may see a purpose and method mentioned. However, you will notice that the method only involves finding and summarizing other articles.
Make sure to read the methods mentioned in your article to verify that they have conducted their own study, and are not only summarizing other studies.
