Skills: The purpose of this assignment is to help you practice the following skills that are essential to your success in this course and as a future nurse:
Explaining how Health Care Law impacts patient care -this will ultimately help students to protect both their patients and their licenses by practicing within established legal boundaries.
Explaining how public health laws related to such issues as disease surveillance and immunizations are likely to impact both individual patients’ and the community’s ultimate health outcomes, and how nurses can use this information to help their patients and communities.
Analyzing how nurses can work as advocates and educators regarding the importance of public health initiatives.
Knowledge: This assignment will help you to become familiar with the following important content knowledge in this discipline: Healthcare Law and the specific exemplars related to public health: disease surveillance and immunizations.An understanding of this concept impacts nurses’ ability to provide patient-centered care.
Start by reading the chapter titled Health Care Law in your Giddens book. Then, read:
The Importance of Public Health Nursing in a Pandemic This brief piece, co-written by the Chair of the Public Health Nursing section of the American Public Health Association, highlights many of the reasons that a strong public health nursing workforce is more important than ever.
Also read: Immunizations: What Nurses Should Know Immunization laws have long been a part of public health efforts to keep communities safe, and with the upcoming 2020 influenza season, combined with the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses being able to educate the public and individual patients about the importance of immunizations will be more critical than ever.
As you’re reading the articles, think about how they relate to what you read about Health Care Law in your nursing concepts book.
For the assignment, please answer the following questions and submit in a Word document.This is not a formal APA paper (you do not need a running head or title page) but you should follow APA formatting rules for your in-text citations and the References list.
1. Analyze the assigned pieces on public health nursing and immunizations, and describe how those articles relate to what you learned by reading the Giddens chapter on Health Care Law (this should be one substantial paragraph – please see the example I provided).
2.When faced with a patient who is vaccine hesitant or resistant, how will you fulfill your role as an educator in addressing your patient’s fears or concerns?
Be sure to cite your Giddens text (the assigned chapter for this module related to Health Care Economics), and both of the assigned pieces.Use APA formatting correctly with your in-text citations and in the References section.
Criteria for Success:
Here is a link to an example for this assignment.The example relates the assigned pieces back to the assigned chapter in the concepts book, and the writing flows clearly and thus effectively communicates the author’s points to the reader.I can generally tell by reading the answers to your questions if you just skimmed through the assigned readings or if you read them thoroughly and contemplated and analyzed them, and I will grade your work accordingly.
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.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
