Cancer Patients and COVID 19 Discussion
Step 1 Reflect on your proposed research question or problem of interest.
Step 2 Look to literature to find information about your proposed research question or problem of interest.
Find and post a link to a nursing journal article that you feel would be useful in identifying current research findings about your research question or problem of interest.
Step 3 Post a response to the discussion board.
In your initial post, respond to the following questions:
What sources did you use to search for literature grounded in evidence-based practice relating to your research question or problem of interest?
Identify and explain the elements of a nursing article. Give a brief explanation of each section. Does the article you found contain all the elements of a well-written research article?
Why is this article pertinent to your proposed research question or research problem?
Explain why these findings are credible and pertinent to your proposed research question or research problem.
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.
