A primary source in nursing is an article written by the researcher(s) who performed the research experiment and includes original research data. 

A primary research article contains the following:

  • Introduction: Research question which defines the aim of the research
  • Methodology
  • Results
  • Discussion/Conclusions
  • References

Search in a database, such as Medline EBSCO or CINAHL Complete.   Select "Advanced Search" and  limit to "Publication Type", then select "Clinical Trial."  A Clinical Trial is one type of common research study.  Or you could limit to "Randomized Controlled Trial" which is another type of research study.
