Transformational Nursing Leaders (graded) Review Appendix A, Sections I–V in Finkelman (2016).

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.
