Purposes: The purposes of this assignment are to:
(1) Give the student practice with APA formatting and word-processing techniques.
(2) Create an APA template that may be used by the student for all future BSN paper assignments.
Unlike future papers that will require scholarly research, in this assignment you are simply being asked to take the text you have been provided and format it into an APA-style paper. This will enable you to concentrate on the principles of word-processing and APA formatting rather than research. When you have completed this assignment you will have an APA template that you may use as a format prototype for creating all of your future papers in the BSN program.
There is a sample paper in your APA Manual on pages 61-67 that you may find helpful as a visual reference to formatting your paper.
Be sure to create the paper using correct word processing techniques. This includes but is not limited to; using the word-wrap feature, tabbing for indentations (not individual spaces), placing hard breaks only after the title page, and before the reference page, etc.
Create a new MS Word document for your Homework and title the file using your name in this format: LastName_FirstName_Homework A
Format the margins, typeface, font size, line spacing, and justification according to APA guidelines: (APA book pp. 29-67). Watch: Video: Formatting a Student Paper using APA 7th edition Click on the link below next to the bullet point “Information for Composing Homework A” (this is the information you will use to create your Homework A). You may simply copy and paste the text provided into your Homework A paper.
Use the information provided to create a:
Title Page (APA manual pp. 30-35). Reminder: Author notes and Abstracts are NOT required for RN-BSN papers!
The body (APA manual pp. 39)
Include properly formatted title/section headings: (APA manual pp. 47-49).
Reference/Citation – insert citations and include an APA formatted reference page (APA manual pp. 39-40).
When you are finished:
Double-check your Homework A to ensure that all of the formatting meets APA guidelines, spell-check the document, and be sure that there are no typographical errors.
Assure that your paper uses correct word processing techniques, including but not limited to using: the word-wrap feature (no hard returns at the end of each line); tabbing for indentations (not individual spaces); page breaks after the title page and paper body (not multiple hard returns); the hanging indent feature for references (not hard returns at the end of each line)
