Starting this family nursing course in January and from what I hear this is going to be a hard course. I am looking for the support of my fellow class mates, or any hints from those who have previously taken the class. Thank... Read More

    I am writing the theraputic family letter based on the case study from the book. This also includes only the interventions that were stated in the book. Which means that much of the information is coming from the book, yet we are not supposed to include a reference for the book. I am confused especially since this paper is going to be checked for plagarism. Also found is VERY hard to write the letter at a fifth grade level and incorporate the Nursing Diagnosis. Still its done.
    I am also finding this challenging. Take the same case study that potentially thousands of people are doing/did but don't make it look or sound anything like anyone else's otherwise we'll accuse you of cheating. Sounds simple enough. Ha ha. Good luck everyone!

    I am not a fan of this therapeutic letter. I stink at writing nursing dx's, and it seems as though all the information is already summarized in the case study. Sooo..we just reword it into a letter?

    I am curious as I just stumbled onto this thread, but would a person always cite their references in the body of the letter or just list the references at the end...? I am not in any on-line class but learning some APA guidelines....

    In text citations go in the body while references go at the end. Check out the Purdue Owl website for APA examples. I don't know that you would ever list something in the references without citing it in the body of the paper. If it's in the body, it better be in the references!

    Thanks for the insight. I look things up as well, but I get confused once in a while. Thanks!

    How long did everyone's therapeutic letter turn out to be? The instructions said 2-3 pages double spaced. Mine is 2 pages. Just curious. I didn't know if I should add more to it.

    I'm not sure you are going to be able to complete the assignment without the book since there is a lot of reading we are supposed to do along with this. I would suggest you contact your TA ASAP to see if they have any suggestions or will extend the deadline. Good luck!

    I don't have my book yet, due to seller error, as evidenced by no book recieved yet even though payment was made on 12/28. I have to wait until 1/22 to file a claim saying that I never recieved it. Apparently I am still supposed to get it but we'll see. In the meantime I was able to do a 7 day free trial etextbook of our textbook from Barnes and Noble and I have been reading it on my laptop. It's not ideal, I highly prefer the actual book, but it is working in a pinch. Go check it out at Barnes and Nobles website. Once the free trial is over you can rent it as an etextbook for about $21.
