Nursing History Scholarly Paper
This is an individual assignment related to a historical event or nursing leader. This paper should be three to five pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. The paper should include level 1 headings (see page 62 to review levels of heading).
In review, when developing a scholarly APA paper, the paper should start with an introductory paragraph that includes the purpose statement. The body of the paper should include levels of heading that keep the writer focused and on track. For example, this paper would have four (4) level one headings not including the introductory paragraph or conclusion. The paper would then have a conclusion to summarize the main points of the paper. The last page would be the reference page.
