CINAHL Nursing Guide are summary sheets and since they are summaries of existing literature, they cannot be considered a scholarly reference in discussion responses and assignments.

Page 225 in the APA book  states "Scholarly journal articles are original, primary publications".

In the CANVAS Course Resources, is a document titled "What is a Scholarly Source?" that further outlines requirements for scholarly sources.
