**This assignment utilizes Turnitin.  When you submit this assignment to the assignment drop box, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin.  You will receive an Originality Score along with an Originality Report that should be carefully reviewed.  If revisions need to be made to your assignment, you will be able to submit your assignment up to three (3) times before the due date, and you will quickly receive updated Originally feedback. It is important to plan ahead so that you have enough time to review your originality feedback and make any revisions to your assignment before the final due date.    Please see instructions for using Turnitin in the Course Welcome module under Useful Resources.

NOTE:  In the event you must submit your assignment AFTER the due date (with approval and consent of instructor), please note the following:  

  • Turnitin will only provide ONE attempt for Originality Feedback for late submissions.  
  • Please refer Late Assignment Policy in the Syllabus for questions related to a request to submit a late assignment.

Purpose: The purpose of the project is to serve as an artifact, showing that students have demonstrated achieving the competency of scientific literacy. 

This assignment specifically addresses the following Galen College of Nursing General Education Competencies: 2. Communication. 3. Information Literacy. 4. Critical Thinking. 5. Scientific Literacy.

You will need to work on this assignment weekly throughout the quarter. Your completed assignment will be due during week 9 of the quarter. Please do not wait until the last minute to work on this assignment. It is your responsibility to submit the completed assignment before the DropBox closes. No hard copies or emailed copies will be accepted once the DropBox is closed.

This project requires the ability to understand and apply scientific knowledge that you acquire both inside and outside the anatomy and physiology classroom. You will be presented a pathology that is applicable to the systems we have covered and will be assigned by your instructor. This is a pathology that you may encounter in your nursing career.

As you progress through this course, you will acquire information in a sequential, topic-specific manner. Each topic will include information that is relevant to this assignment. For example, the knowledge you gain from the lesson on cell morphology will be applied to later system-specific questions. Your explanations on each sub-topic should include information from sources that go beyond the textbook or classroom. You are expected to clearly understand the meaning of each topic before you construct your answers. For example, you are expected to know the meaning of “homeostasis” and to understand the topics that are connected to it. Don’t forget to read and understand the rubric before you start. Refer to it often – it will help guide you through the process.

Criteria

1

Description of the pathology

2

Normal anatomy of major body system affected

3

Normal physiology of body system affected

4

Mechanism of pathophysiology

5

Prevention

6

Treatment

  • Students will be assigned individual topics related to physiology and pathological conditions of physiological systems.
  • The student will be required to complete criteria 1-7 in a written paper.
  • The paper will be a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 pages long not including a title and reference pages.
  • A minimum of three APA-style references must be included in the paper. There should be an APA-format references page at the end of the presentation. Additionally, in-text citations should be included when appropriate. Reputable resources include peer-reviewed journal articles, textbooks, interviews with clinicians who deal with these pathologies on a daily basis, personal experiences, class lectures, and other scientific sources.
  • The student should use a font size of 12, Times New Roman, and double-spaced throughout. The paper should be written with the text aligned to the left margin with 1” margins.
  • Students should review the information about plagiarism in the Student Catalog. Any copying of information from another source without giving proper credit through a citation will be met with severe consequences. In line with this, however, the entire presentation should not be directly copied from other sources. The student is expected to compose ideas in their own words, and only use text from other sources as a minor supplement.

The assignment should be submitted through the Dropbox in Canvas on or before the assigned due date. Refer to the late policy for late submissions.
