I am a WOCN student, working for a hospice while I study for the wound care cert. I have a paper, which is the first for the course. I have the requirements below. We are not to repeat back the assessment, but provide what other questions and assessment we would do in this role. To me, it seems like it will be quite monotonous, like " I would assess history of previous ulcers, assess nutrition, etc". I have been taught that this is poor writing. My question is the wording on this. Would it be prudent to request examples of other papers even if they are different assignments to get an idea of what she wants? I have taken graduate level courses toward my MS in education, so I don't know if I am overthinking with the whole way they graded or what. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
