Discussion: Discipline of nursing as an art and a science
Discussion: Discipline of nursing as an art and a science ON Discussion: Discipline of
nursing as an art and a science1-Based on your nursing practice specialty, which nursing
theorist/theory might align with your current career.2-Nightingale considered the
discipline of nursing to be both an art and a science, Do you agree or disagree? Why?The
initial post will be regarding the topic of the week and will be a minimum of 500 words.
Make sure you provide appropriate references and utilize APA style.You 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.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. Discussion: Discipline of nursing as an art and a scienceLikewise, 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.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.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).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. Discussion:
Discipline of nursing as an art and a scienceAPA 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.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.Discussion: Discipline of
