All paper submitted must be in APA format according to the Publication Manual American Psychological Association (APA) (6th ed.).

2009 ISBN: 978-1-4338-0561-5

 

This course will use a variety of learning experiences to attain the course objectives, including but not limited to lecture, online discussion, case study, assessment strategies, group and or individual exercises, team and individual presentation, and learning games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Discussion Question (DQ) Participation Guidelines

 

Students must post a minimum of three times in each graded discussion. The three posts in each individual discussion must be on separate days, the initial answer and two responses to peers.  The student must provide an initial answer to the graded discussion posted by the course instructor, by Wednesday, 11:59 p.m. EST, of each week. The replies posted must included the name of the person you are replying.

 

If the student does not provide an answer to each graded discussion topic (not a response to a student peer) before the Wednesday deadline, an automatic “0” will be issued for that week’s DQ. Subsequent posts, including essential responses to peers, must occur by the Sunday deadline, 11:59 p.m. EST of each week and each reply must be posted in different dates.  Replies posted the same day will be graded it as Zero (0).

 

*Credit for peer responses will be issued via the DQ rubric if peer responses are made without an initial DQ response.

 

NOTE: To receive credit for a week’s discussion, students may begin posting no earlier than the Monday at 12:01 a.m. EST. Unless otherwise specified, access to most weeks begins on Monday at 12:01 a.m. EST.

 

Discussion Question (DQ) Submission Guidelines

 

Students must submit their initial, weekly DQ post in two separate areas.  First, the student will submit their initial response via that week’s assignment link provided in the SafeAssign exercise under the assignments tab as a Microsoft Word document.  Once this is done, the student will then copy and paste their answer onto that week’s DQ thread under the Discussions tab.  Thereafter, all discussions and peers’ replies will be conducted via the DQ board.  Failure to submit your initial DQ response to BOTH the assignments tab and the DQ thread will result in a “0” for that week’s DQ.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: All DQ submissions will be monitored for plagiarism.

 

 

You are required to post at least 3 times each week on different dates (until Sunday @ 11:59 PM) with the proper evidence-based references.  Postings are graded together with the assignment and/or activity for that week.  The total of the assignment or every discussion question is 15 points (10 points for the assignment and 2.5 points for the replies, SafeAssign exercise does not have any point value but it is mandatory by the nursing/distance learning department.  Your discussion questions assignment must include at least 800 words (excepts special assignments and not counting the first and reference page) with a minimum of 3 evidence-based references, excluding the class textbook and a non-reliable website such as Wikipedia. All references must be quoted properly according to the APA guidelines (please review chapter 6 of the APA Manual).   

 

 

All assignments will be graded using a rubric.  Grammar is a vital part of the grading criteria for every assignment.  As a BSN student close to graduation it is imperative that you present your assignments in an acceptable college level. 

 

I recommend you download the following app on your computer;

 

www.grammarly.com

 

Grammarly is free and “makes sure everything you type is easy to read, effective, and mistake free”.  Grammar/spelling will be part of the grading system.

 

Students are also required to know the expectations or “etiquette” that pertains to the discussion board. Students who abuse this forum by making harassing, inappropriate or abusive statements will be removed and receive a zero (0). Remember, your participation is essential to connecting with other students and developing an online learning community. Further, often it is the deciding factor between receiving a higher or lower grade at the end of the term.

 

Assignments: Specific assignments and their due week are listed in this syllabus.  Grading criteria are decided by the class instructor and the assignment rubric.  You are accountable for both individual assignments and for providing a significant contribution to your learning team’s collaborative assignments (if any). Your course grade includes scores from both your individual and group assignments. You are also responsible for completing all

 

assignments including readings, written papers, presentations, and class discussions. You will be graded on the achievement of the objectives, not on the effort you put into your assignments. All online discussions, written assignments and documentation of others’ ideas and words in presentations must be in an APA 6th edition format with at least 3 evidence-based practice references no older than 5 years.  Class textbook and websites can be used but will not be counted as a reference for grading purposes. All assignments and replies must be presented in an Arial 12 font.

 

You have one opportunity to complete each assignment. Papers cannot be rewritten, and presentations cannot be re-given to obtain a higher grade.

 

Late Assignments: Due dates are established for reasons of equity. It is not fair to peers who complete assignments on time if other classmates have extra time to work on their assignments.  It is also not fair to the professor who must grade assignments in a timely fashion. Therefore, 5% of the assignment points (i.e., 1 out of 20, 1.25 out of 25, 2 out of 40) will be deducted each day for late submissions.

 

  1. Class Policies: All students are responsible for reviewing the School Catalog.

STUDENT CODE OF ETHICS

 

Cheating or plagiarism is dishonest, undermines the necessary trust upon which relations between students and faculty are based, and it is unacceptable to conduct. Students who engage in cheating or plagiarism will be subject to academic sanctions, including a lowered or failing grade in a course; and the possibility of an additional administrative sanction, including probation, suspension, or expulsion.

 

Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work by using dishonest means. Cheating at FNU includes but is not limited to: Copying, in part or whole from another’s examination, paper, mathematical analysis, research or creative project, or the like; Submitting as one’s own work an examination, paper, mathematical analysis, research or creative project, or the like which has been purchased, borrowed, or stolen; or fabricating data; Consulting notes, sources, or materials not specifically authorized by the instructor during an examination; Employing a surrogate to take an examination, write a paper, do mathematical analysis, or complete, in part or wholly, an evaluation instrument; Aiding or abetting any act that a reasonable person would conclude, when informed of the evidence, to be a dishonest means of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work; and committing any act that a reasonable person would conclude, when informed of the evidence, to be a dishonest means of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work.

 

Plagiarism is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work by representing the work of another as one’s own without the necessary and appropriate acknowledgment. More specifically, plagiarism is: The act of incorporating the ideas, words of sentences, paragraphs, or parts thereof without appropriate acknowledgment and representing the product as one’s own work; and the act of representing another’s intellectual work such as musical composition, computer program, photographs, painting, drawing, sculpture, or research or the like as one’s own. If a student is in doubt about the nature of plagiarism, he/she should discuss the matter with the course instructor.

 

The instructor has a way to verify if the student is committing plagiarism.  If an act of plagiarism is suspected and or suspected by the class instructor, the following actions will be taken;

    

     -1st time – The student will receive a written advice (warning) by the professor that must signed by the student and forward to the BSN academic advisors.

 

     -2nd time – The student will receive a written advice (dismissal) that must be signed by the student and forward to the BSN academic advisors and the student will received “WF”.

 

The Nursing Program Director, Distance Learning Director and Registrar will be notified and the “WF” will be placed in the student academic record by the Registrar or designee and Distance Learning Director or designee will removed the student from the course.

 

 

Here are some details about plagiarism;

 

15-20% is considered low and acceptable.  Anything over 20% required the instructor to view the report to ensure that proper citation techniques have been applied to justify the similarity, according to APA.

 

 

This is from Blackboard:

 

  • Low: Scores below 15 percent: These papers typically include some quotes and few common phrases or blocks of text that match other documents. Typically, these papers don’t require further analysis as there is no evidence of plagiarism.

 

  • Medium: Scores between 15 percent and 40 percent: These papers include extensive quoted or paraphrased material, or they include plagiarism. Review these papers to determine if the matching text is properly referenced.

 

  • High: Scores over 40 percent: A very high probability exists that the text in these papers was copied from other sources. These papers include quoted or paraphrased text in excess, and need to be reviewed for plagiarism (Dr. O. Viera 2019)

 

Theft – Copying computer programs owned, leased, or rented by the College for use by the student in his or her course of studies is considered theft and will be dealt with according to the laws covering such actions and to the College norms for disciplinary actions. In cases like these, the Campus Dean will convene a Hearing Committee which will hear, investigate and render a report to the Campus Dean. This Committee will be composed of three members from the faculty or staff. According to the findings, the Campus Dean has the choice to decide. If this decision is not acceptable to those involved, a petition to the Dean to appoint an Honor Court must be signed by at least three people. The Honor Court procedure is explained in the Student Handbook.

 

 

Religious Holidays


Religious holidays are an excused absence, but not beyond the day for the holiday itself. Students should make their requests known at the beginning of the semester and arrangements must be made with the faculty member for missed work.

 

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities who may need special accommodations must register with the Office of Disability Services. In addition, students must contact the instructor so that arrangements can be made to accommodate their needs.
