Introduction: Clear concise 1-3 paragraphs explaining definition of topic. What are nursing theories and their importance to nursing? Who are theorists and how have they paved the way for nursing today? You need a purpose statement, which briefly informs the reader what this paper will entail/discuss/include. I will be looking for \”The purpose of this paper is…\” in your introduction paragraph
Body of the paper should follow the rubric: In this case you will have to compare two nursing theories and theorists in regard to their frameworks ( heading), Contrast two differences between two theories and theorists in regards to their framework (heading). Which nursing theory and theorist best correlates with your nursing style ( heading). So essentially three headings for the body and one for the conclusion!
Conclusion: Separate and last paragraph that reiterates what your introduction says and summarizes the key points of the paper without introducing new facts or information.
Refrain from using I/we/they, instead use this author or this writer.
All APA papers need headings before topic/rubric requirement paragraphs.
Paragraphs need to be 2-7 sentences long.
ALL BSN level paper must have three scholarly references as in journals or your required text.
Review the APA video and handout under your announcement section as this is extremely helpful.
