  • After studying and analyzing the approved theory, write about this theory, including an overview of the theory and specific examples of how it could be applied in your own clinical setting.

3. Discussion Prompt:

With the rough draft of your nursing comparison paper due this week, a focused review of the basics of APA Style is important. Follow the instructions listed in the bullets below to direct you where to find specific APA guidelines. After you have reviewed the information, share something you learned with your peers. Also, attach examples from your rough draft that include both an in-text citation you used when you were paraphrasing and one you used when you were directly quoting. In addition, attach the reference page from your rough draft so that you can review each other’s work and provide peer-to-peer feedback.

This is the textbook we use. Use this as a reference and in-text citation wherever possible throughout the paper along with other references.
