Mod2 rwjf writing skills ppt v2 - revised 06262013

  1. 1. Writing Skills
  2. 2. Writing Skills Written communication skills are critical to being successful in the nursing profession. While oral communication skills are critical to nursing professionals as they relate to the care they provide, written skills are even more critically important as the nursing must record vital information that other care givers will need to rely upon as part of the health care delivery team. As a nursing student, you may need to prepare written assignments and some of your tests may contain essay questions. Thus, it is necessary for you to develop clear, organized writing skills.
  3. 3. Writing Skills (continued)  As a nursing professional, you may want to contribute your thoughts and knowledge in scholarly articles or journals. Writings of these types have specific formats and requirements, so be sure to learn what is needed and develop your skills. What you write can influence the perceptions about you and reflect on the institutions and organizations with which you are associated. It is key that you learn to write with clarity, apply language effectively and enhance your writing ability to be an effective nurse.
