WALDEN NURS 3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
WALDEN NURS 3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
NURS 3150 Week 3 Discussion Topic (Walden University)
NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION As I become more familiar with various research designs, I realize that the goal of all methods of medical research is to optimize patient care by generating new knowledge while maintaining the rights and interests of any human subjects involved (Izet, Ajila, & Smaila, 2014). So much is considered for a valuable and reliable study. This week’s focus involved the influence of music on the anxiety level of preoperative female patients planning to undergo gynecologic surgery (Labrague & McEnroe-Petitte, 2016). After reading the assigned resources, I found myself critiquing the study in ways that I wouldn’t have prior to this course.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS-NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
Discussion 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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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). NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize 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 Loud-cloud 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). NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage over-utilization 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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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? NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The 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. N
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
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. NURS3150 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION
