The assignment follows the American Psychological Association (APA) format, as outlined in the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2019). The MacEwan Writing and Learning Services website has services to help you with your writing and use of APA format and extra APA resources are provided in mêskanâs.
1. Components: The scholarly paper should include the following: 1) An introduction that includes a purpose/thesis statement and that outlines the direction that the paper will take; 2) a number of paragraphs to develop the central theme and subthemes; 3) and a conclusion. Please write the paper in 3rd person as it is meant to be formal.
2. Length: The paper should be 5-7 pages, excluding the title page and reference list.
3. Grading:
• Marks will be given for the quality of the introduction, the use of evidence and critical thinking to explore the PICO question, the quality of the conclusion, and the writing style and APA mechanics – please review the grading rubric.
• The focus of the paper should be the exploration of the nursing-related PICO question. This means that it should be written in a comparative or analytical manner and the research that was found should be clearly presented.
• Content in the paper needs to be supported with at least 7 referenced resources, 5 of which must be good quality, peer-reviewed research papers with the majority being nursing-related. The 3 articles used to generate the PICO question can be included as part of the 7 referenced resources.
• Major concepts need to be defined and supported by quality references. Consider the age of the literature, the author credentials, and where on the planet the information is coming from. If information in the paper is coming from outside of North America, this should be specified in the writing.
• Please review the APA manual (7th edition) for information on organizing and writing an effective research paper.
• Please keep in mind that in all assignments at a University level, marks aren’t lost, they are earned. Read these assignment guidelines and the grading rubric carefully and ask questions if something isn’t clear.
• Key points to remember:
o Keep the PICO question as the focus and write a comparative and analytical paper.
o Avoid using secondary sources unless the original reference is out of print or unavailable. Limit the use of direct quotations, and never have back-to-back direct quotations. Paraphrase when possible to demonstrate understanding of the content.
o Use headings to organize content, and structure your introduction to briefly state the relevancy of your topic and to outline the content that will be discussed in the body of the paper. Remember that the introduction is your opportunity to grab the reader’s attention and outline what is going to be discussed in your paper. Be sure to include a clear and meaningful purpose statement.
o The first paragraph in the body of the paper about a chronic condition should briefly identify the prevalence of the condition, explain why managing this condition is important (health implications), identify barriers that people living with this condition currently experience that prevent them from attaining optimal health, and suggest nursing interventions that might address those barriers. This should NOT be the main focus of the paper, though. Keep it brief.
o The main focus of the paper should be a comparative or analytical exploration of the PICO question.
o The conclusion should summarize what was included in the body of the paper and make a clear statement about the PICO question based on the findings revealed in the paper.
6 pages excluding reference page
