Discussion: maintaining academic integrity | Nursing homework help


Discussion Directions 

Maintaining your own integrity as a professional nurse is an essential part of your career. Despite knowing the consequences for an academic integrity infraction, why do some students still falsify their work?

What are the most challenging APA formatting issues for you? Why do you find these areas so challenging? What resources will you use to overcome these challenges?

 Example of another student’s discussion in the same class————–

As a professional nurse, working in the clinical setting, maintaining integrity is vital in the relationship with my patients and their families. As mentioned in the American Associates of College of Nursing [AACN] Essentials of Baccalaureate Education (2008) “Through this connection, the nurse and patient work toward and understanding of a wide variety or physical, psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual needs, health-illness decisions and life changes.” (p.27) Patients rely on their healthcare team to give accurate information regarding their health; therefore, they can make educated decisions. Another area where integrity is important is between the nurse and doctor. In the clinic setting, I work with one cardiologist. On a day-to-day basis, he is calling with orders and relies on me to carry them out and follow up to make sure the patients have gotten the testing completed. By working together, we can give the patients the best treatment and get better compliance from patients and families.

In the future, I hope to use the foundations of what I have learned and continue to learn, by staying up to date on trials or new medications, in my nursing practice to be able to give my patients continued education on their illness or chronic health issues.

I believe the students, who know about the consequences of an academic integrity infraction, still do it because they feel the pressure of failure. Students face demands daily. An article in Nurse Education today, talked about academic integrity in nursing where students found it necessary to cheat to have success in nursing school. (Bultas et al., 2017)

The most challenging APA formatting issues that I have is correctly documenting the sources in the text and making sure that I have all the information in the reference. I find documenting the sources challenging because there are many components that make it up.

The resources that I will use to overcome these challenges are seeking help from my professor, Chamberlain writing center, and using my APA textbook.
