    Anyone else confused about the first assignment? It doesn't seem to relate to the readings at all? I may be over thinking advice please>

    Totally procrastinating writing this paper. The directions are so very vague that I can't get a handle on what exactly they are looking for

    Procrastination at it's best, that's what weekends are for . But really, the reading in the assignment is basically guidelines for quality improvement. Don't overthink it. Find some articles about quality improvement. Compare the articles and the reading, and write a paper discussing quality improvement for the older population and how your experience relates or would relate, and how all of this will affect your care for the older population in the future.

    I am also having a terrible time with this assignment. The rubric is not even remotely clear. I have now spent 10 hours researching, reading, writing, and revising this assignment and I feel like I have nothing that I can even come close to submitting. I too have to work all weekend to the next 6 hours will make or break me. I am so frustrated I could cry. Does anyone have any direction?

    Is it me, why am I struggling with this assignment? Is it because we don't work in nursing homes? Uggghhh...I think I would have preferred the wet depends assignment.

    For week 2 do you think the title of the paper is Tuesdays with Morrie? Is that also supposed to be the running head?

    The running head is a shortened version of the title, but if your title is Tuesdays with Morrie that's short enough, I think.

    How long is this paper supposed to be? I'm sure I saw that somewhere, but can't find it now.

    Thanks

    When referring to the movie Tuesdays with Morrie within the paper do you italic or underline? In the running header what do you do?

    I italicized mine. If you look closely in the assignment instructions, it is italicized there also:


    WEEK 2 - COMMUNICATION, CULTURE, AND DOCUMENTATION OF CARE ASSIGNMENT: REFLECTIONS ON TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE PAPER

    I also went ahead an cited and referenced the movie (I'm not sure if I did it right, but it's the best I could find on what to do):
    in text citation: Tuesdays with Morrie (Forte & Winfrey, 1999)

    Reference: Forte, K., & Winfrey, O. (Producers) & Jackson, M. (Director). (1999). Tuesdays with Morrie [Motion picture]. United States: Carlton America & Harpo Productions.
