Course Essay.Note: Introduction – Write an introduction but do not use “Introduction” as a
heading in accordance with the rules put forth in the Publication manual of the American
Psychological Association (2010, p. 63). a. Course Reflection b. ConclusionPREPARING
YOUR REFLECTIONThe BSN Essentials (AACN, 2008) outline a number of healthcare policy
and advocacy competencies for the BSN-prepared nurse. Reflect on the NUR4286 course
readings, discussion threads, and applications you have completed across this course and
write a reflective essay regarding the extent to which you feel you are now prepared
to:Nursing and Aging Family Course Essay.1. “Conduct comprehensive and focused physical,
behavioral, psychological, spiritual, socioeconomic, and environmental assessments of
health and illness parameters in patients, using developmentally and culturally appropriate
approaches. 2. Recognize the relationship of genetics and genomics to health, prevention,
screening, diagnostics, prognostics, selection of treatment, and monitoring of treatment
effectiveness, using a constructed pedigree from collected family history information as well
as standardized symbolsYou must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your
computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on
your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous
misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in
silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is
advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten
corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.Nursing and Aging Family Course
Essay.Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or
compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is
better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress
it into fewer pages.Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing,
increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any
other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable,
wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.Nursing and Aging Family Course
Essay.The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the
top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper
and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow
your argument.ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASSDiscussion Questions
(DQ)Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked,
include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.Successful responses
are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion,
well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.Nursing and Aging Family
Course Essay.One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good
post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses
should be at least 150 words.I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as
applicable) into your responses.Weekly ParticipationYour initial responses to the
mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.In addition to
the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days,
for a total of three replies.Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation
(unless you cite someone else’s work).Nursing and Aging Family Course Essay.Part of your
weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching
it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything
that is due during the week.APA Format and Writing QualityFamiliarize yourself with APA
format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your
degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in
LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for
poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).Cite all sources of
information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.I highly
recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.Use of Direct QuotesI discourage
overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct
points accordingly.As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically
analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply
restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or
critical analysis of the content.It is best to paraphrase content and cite your
source.LopesWrite PolicyFor assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please
be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do
a “final submit” to me.Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will
show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the
extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.Review your
similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your
paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?Visit the Writing Center in
the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving
your paper and SI score.Late PolicyThe university’s policy on late assignments is 10%
penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.Please communicate with me if
you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance
notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.If you
do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will
be in effect.Nursing and Aging Family Course Essay.I do not accept assignments that are two
or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.As per policy, no assignments
are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last
day of class will not be accepted for grading.CommunicationCommunication is so very
important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:Questions to Instructor
Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a
question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for
the class.Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me
messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.Nursing and Aging Family
