I am taking an english class where I have to write a memo about technical communication in my chosen proffession. Since Nursing is what I want to do I need to find literature, websites, etc to help me find some info for my memo. Does anybody have any idea, or maybe a nurse I could chat with and interview to tell me about the different types of communication nurses do, such as prescriptions, or reports or something. If you do please reply. This is due in the next couple of days.

I guess you could look up styles of charting formats as one approach to this assignment. Like at one hospital we use D (Data), A (Activity) R (Response) as the headings for each narrative written.
Regarding Nursing Research......most of the schools
are pushing the APA format. You could do a search under Google....for APA writing and find information about using that style of writing in nursing research.
