Writing Tips

As you construct your essay you need to:

Use correct punctuation, spelling and syntax (sentence structure)
Paraphrase ideas from your reading/research, don’t just copy them
Avoid use of direct quotations.
Ensure you use APA 6th referencing style.

References 

As good practice, whenever you include (cite) an author in your writing, ensure you include the full reference to the text referred to, at the end of your writing task.
To find appropriate sources, use the CDU library online journal databases.
Use APA referencing guidelines can be found on the CDU Library website. Download a copy and keep it to hand so that you can refer to it regularly as you learn the skills of referencing.
The APA 6th referencing system should be used as per the referencing guidelines on the CDU Library Website
Peer reviewed journal articles are your best sources. Avoid non-refereed sources such as editorials, monthly columns or non-refereed journals.
It is useful to include your set text (Daly, J., Speedy, S., & Jackson, D. (Eds). (2014). Contexts of nursing. (4th ed), Elsevier Australia, Chatswood, NSW) as a reference but otherwise keep the number of books to a minimum. (preferably more of journals)
Your reference list should contain a minimum of 4 quality references that are no older than 5-8 years. This does not include Wikipedia or dictionaries.
Information gained from Internet sites varies greatly in depth and quality of content.
Internet sites must be relevant and reputable, for example, the NWBA website.

Physical presentation

Use Times New Roman, Tahoma or Arial, 12 point font. Do not use bold type.
Use 1.5 or double spacing;
Justify left and right;

Do not use headings or dot points;
Justify left and right;
Include page numbers; provide your name in the footer of the document
The essay should be on any of these 5 scenarios
SCENARIO 1
You witness a nurse being very rough with and yelling at a confused patient who is not cooperating.
What is your immediate action? What must you do following this? Which sections of the Australian National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse apply here and why? What are the possible legal/ethical implications?
My immediate reaction would be to try and excuse the nurse from what he/she is doing and step away from the patient. Ask what is happening and advise that I don’t think it is acceptable behaviour and if he/she needs to remove themselves they should ask for assistance. The incident then needs to be reported to the appropriate authority, whether this be a manager or supervisor.
This is a breach of the Code of Professional Conduct as this nurse has acted unlawfully towards the patient. Statement 7 explains that, if a patient is unwilling or unable to make a decision for themselves, it is the nurse’s responsibility to ensure there is appropriate representation made available (NMBA, 2006).
Implications could include deregistration from the National Board of Nursing and may not practice again.

What is your immediate action? What must you do following this? Which sections of the Australian National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse apply here and why? What are the possible legal/ethical implications?
SCENARIO 4

What is your immediate action? What must you do following this? Which sections of the Australian National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse apply here and why? What are the possible legal/ethical implications?
