Step One: Locate an article in a professional nursing journal Locate the name of a recent (<5 years), professional, nursing journal related to the area of nursing you are interested in pursuing. Please refer to the Library/APA Resource Module to help guide you. You may also consider finding a journal published by a professional nursing organization you located in your Exploring Nursing Assignment. Find one scholarly, peer-reviewed article in that journal that interests you and read it; editorial and topical articles will not suffice.  You will need to include a copy of your article with your assignment submission; this needs to be a .pdf file and not just a copy of the link. Step Two: Summarize the article On a Microsoft Word document, type a one page (double spaced) summary of the article you read. Make sure your name and date are on the top of the page. In your summary, make sure and use in-text citations, including page numbers if you use a direct quote. Remember, even information that is summarized must be cited to avoid plagiarism. Follow APA format (double space, no bold font, in-text citations) and make sure and use complete sentences, grammar, and spelling. You do not need a title page or headers but you must include your reference at the end.  The reference must be in APA format. Please refer to the Library/APA Resource Module in the course for help and examples.  Step Three: Submit TWO attachments to Canvas Attach the summary in Word format Attach the article as a .pdf format Please see the rubric for details on how to avoid deductions for this assignment.
