    academic dishonesty issue

    Okay so I am in my second year of college and I just got accepted in to the school of nursing. Two weeks ago for my art history class i was assigned to write a paper which entailed a visit to a museum in new york ( i live in ct). Long story short, i didnt have time to make it to the museum so i went online to the gallery's website and wrote my paper on objects that i looked at online. Come to find out that one of the objects i wrote about was not on display at the museum, only online. I got an email from my teacher two weeks later telling me that i did not visit the museum and have therefore committed academic dishonesty. She gave me a zero for the assignment which is ten percent of my grade and i now have a permanent record in my file. I met with someone from the school of nursing and she emphasized that this was a big concern for the school of nursing etc etc. I was just wondering is this going to affect my progress in nursing school or even job opportunities in the future ? I understand i should have went to the museum to look at the objects but it seems to me a bit much to call it academic dishonesty ... its not like i copied someones work or used someone else's paper... they were all my original ideas. only difference is i looked at the objects at home instead of the museum. i meant no harm by this i simply did not have time to make it to the museum:uhoh3: if anything i feel like the professor should have given me a zero but not report it as academic dishonesty. i feel like i will now be labeled as a cheater/plagiarizer .. which is not what i am! please help .. has anyone had any similar situations??

    nursing diagnosis help please

    Hey guys im doing my first care plan (group presentation, 1 ns diagnosis per person) and have to come up with a nursing diagnosis for a young jewish mother of 2 toddlers who has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. This is what i came up withe for the diagnosis part: activity intolerance r/t generalized weakness and fatigue aeb inability to perform daily physical activities. i was wondering if the related factors have to be listed in the nanda book or not because i used fatigue as a realted factor although it is not listed. also id like to know if my aeb is too broad ? should i make it more specific such as "aeb patient verbalization of weakness/ exhaustion?" all help is appreciated ... please let me know anything else im missing my teacher did not explain this very well!!

    nursing diagnosis help please

    okay thanks for the help. I think i am just going to keep the activity intolerance since i already started and presentation is due tomorrow i just have a question about the nursing interventions and rationales. are these suppose to be taken out of the book (nursing diagnosis handbook , ackley & ladwig) or do i make them up or what? Also, some of the interventions in the book for activity intolerance do not have rationales ... what do i do about that ? i am suppose to have a rationale for each nursing diagnosis. thanksss in advance !
