b. How has the history of nursing affected nursing practice (reflect and write at least a paragraph on nursing history and reference historical events i.e â€œGoldmark Reportâ€ when you answer this question)?
2. Reflect on the changes in the nurse-client relationship that has been associated with new nursing roles and the use of new technological advances.
a. How do you think a nurse can maintain a therapeutic caring relationship with the client as machines (computer technology) take over some of nursing functions? (write at least a paragraph )
b. Based on the projected visions of tomorrowâ€™s healthcare and nursing, what skills will be MOST important in the future of nursing education (which skills need to be a priority in nursing schools of the future)? What are they and how should they be taught? (write at least a paragraph )
This week discussion #1 assignment opens, this forum opens on 9/18 ; this discussion is open for 2 weeks!
Please be mindful that your initial post is due 72 hours prior to the closing of the forum, the forum will close on 10/1 @ 11:59pm. Subsequent post to a colleague ( second post) as specified in your syllabus is due by 10/1 @ 11:59pm.
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.
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.
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.
