The area of practice that interests me is Mental Health. I am interested in the inequality of services offered to mental health patients, the reasons why it happens, and how we can prevent it. After encountering difficulties finding my topic of interest in databases by subject and A-Z, I selected the Thoreau database on Walden's University Library. I started by placing words such as despair and mental health. Once I found the article, I set the feature to find @ Walden, and then it directed me to ProQuest database. The peer-reviewed article I chose refers to African Americans who do not receive the same healthcare access to diagnose and treat mental illness compared to the Caucasian community. The author explains how "structural and institutional racism" contributes to these despairs (Asonye et al., 2020," Discussion" section). The author invites Providers to be aware of their inclinations for or against specific communities and how such tendencies can affect their decisions. After choosing this article, I evaluated the resource by questioning the author's previous works, when the article was published, and whether the information provided was cited and covered my topic. Walden's University Library has a list of helpful questions used to evaluate sources (Walden University Library, 2021a).
Difficulties During Research
To find the peer-reviewed article, I began using the Walden Library Databases A-Z, looking by nursing topic and selecting peer-review-all. This process took me to a page with multiple options, such as CINAHL. After looking at two databases and choosing what I thought were the suitable options, I got a wide selection of articles. None of these articles pertained to my specific subject of interest. I decided to start my research with a different approach. The Walden Library offers an immediate start research box by subject. I selected nursing, and then on the nursing page, I chose nursing journals and Nurse & Allied journals by subject (Walden University, 2021). I realized that I would have to look at each journal to find my topic of interest. This way of researching was time-consuming, and I would have picked an article that was not of my specific interest to finish my work on time.
Thoreau is a multi-database offered by Walden University. This database, like others, does not have every subject from the library. Thoreau is a recommendable database search for graduate students to find various topics, see the research location, get help with small assignments, and search articles for discussions. Thoreau cannot be utilized for a Doctoral capstone because it is limited to Walden (Walden University Library, 2021b). I recommend Thoreau for less complex tasks but not for projects that require search-specific databases. Since Thoreau is a Multidisciplinary database, it is easy to find a topic, but this database does not go in-depth as the subject database does (Walden University, n.d.). Students should select databases according to their assignment's complexity and degree subject.

The article I chose pertains to self-care symptom management. We are all aware of that our healthcare system is broken and significantly abused, emergency room resources especially, due to the uninsured or by issues that could be managed at home or by a primary care physician. This article gives insight on a model utilized by NPs to educate and guide patients on how to reason through their symptoms instead of rushing to hospitals for minor issues. The commonsense model (CSM) of illness representation was developed to explain how a person processes an illness threat (Cameron & Leventhal, 2003).
CINAHL and PubMed are databases I typical use for most of my nursing research, they generally yield many relevant articles or journals. I also utilized the Walden Library for this assignment and found it to be helpful also, it led me to most of the same articles but required a little more effort or narrowing of keywords. I would recommend either database to my colleagues.
