Overview: “APA, Plagiarism, & Role Transition Articles”

In the Module 1 Assignment, you will view an APA Module to obtain information about writing in a professional style and in professional formats that are expected at the BSN level of the College of Nursing. After viewing the APA Module, you will submit an Attestation Statement Form.

The reference on Scholarly Writing in your Resources will also provide tips on strengthening your professional writing skills. As part of scholarly writing, you must ensure proper citation for others’ work, including both direct quotations and paraphrased ideas, so you will study a Plagiarism Module for guidelines. Since your professional nursing experience may not have required you to regularly access professional libraries or databases, you will learn and practice the procedures for retrieving research articles.

As a part of this assignment, you will select, cite, and summarize two research articles on the role transition from RN to BSN.

Use the following resources as you complete this Application assignment.
