Concept Paper

Select any one of the concepts studied in this course and write a 5-7 page paper (excluding title and reference page) on the topic.

Some of the concepts include nursing informatics, critical thinking, nursing theory, education level of entry into nursing practice of nursing education, stress, compassion fatigue, professionalism, patient education, nursing history and historical figures, culture, or any others discussed in class or from your readings. If you choose a topic about nursing history or nursing theory, you can write your paper in general terms or you can select a specific theory or nurse. If you choose nursing history, you could choose a specific group such as military nurses, or write about the history of nursing in a general way.

Although APA uses only third person and not first or second person, it is acceptable to use “I” and “me” when discussing how the concept is incorporated into your practice and how you plan to continue to grow in this area.

Note: you must use the headings from the rubric or lose 10 points automatically. 

Good luck!
