Question Description
Speaking of our first paper, here are a few pointers:

Go to the online library (link is in the resources) and pick a current journal article on nursing leadership styles. The article must be from a professional, peer-reviewed nursing journal published within the last 5 years. DO NOT USE A WEBSITE!!!

Write a 1-2 page summary of your findings following the criteria below:

First paragraph: summarize the major points of the article.

Second paragraph: answer whether you support the leadership style, and why or why not.

Final paragraph: discuss the article as it relates to nursing practice.Use at least one additional outside source, such as your textbook.

The summary should be written in APA style format and all sources must be cited correctly.

Next, submit your papers to Smarthinking!!! Link to submit to the online tutoring is under the Tutoring link!They can be very helpful in giving feedback for your papers.Make sure to leave yourself 24-48 hours to receive the paper back from them before you have to turn it in on Blackboard.

APA format:Includes a title page and reference page as well as the 1-2 pages of writing.I have included a link to Purdue OWL’s website (great resource for APA formatting) and a link to a sample APA formatted paper.The paper is a word document, so you are welcome to use it as a template.

Last:Follow the rubric!! Make sure you have completed everything on the rubric and you will be successful!


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.
