Is an integrative review a primary research study that I can use for Nursing 39000?


An integrative review is not a primary research study. Integrative reviews summarize past literature and synthesize the findings to determine what is and is not known about a specific topic.  Because the authors did not conduct the on-site research themselves and are analyzing studies conducted by other researchers, they are considered to be secondary research.
