Journal Details

The journal document should be 3-4 pages in length. No citations are required, and no specific formatting is needed. Utilize appropriate grammar and mechanics of writing.

Topic: Expectations of course: Create a document that addresses the following:

  1. How do you envision this course adding to your knowledge of pharmacology?
  2. How do you think you will use knowledge of pharmacology differently as an advanced practice nurse than you do as an RN?
  3. What are your expectations of your advanced practice role, specifically as a prescriber?
  4. What do you think the role of standards of care are in the prescribing process?

Discussion Board GRAD

Discussion Board (DB) Participation Rubric
Discussion boards (DBs) are what make an online course a course and not an independent study.
DBs are vital to demonstrating that the learner has met the expected course level outcomes.
Collaboration between peers and your instructor in the DB is an important aspect of the online learning experience and is expected in the course.
Any exceptions to the following DB rubric will be at the instructor’s discretion.
The purpose of a DB is to stimulate critical thinking in a scholarly manner.
Critical thinking consists of synthesis, creating solutions, application to real world situations, and testing, debating, and defending evidence-based solutions.
Critical thinking is not repetition of assigned reading material. Outside research of the literature is a vital part of the DB.
Posts need to be substantive. This means that responses such as “I agree” or “great post” do not meet grading rubric requirements.
Initial posts for each discussion question (DQ) is due no later than Saturday of the unit week.
The initial post must be an answer to the DQ topic, not a comment on other posts. Initial posts for each DB must also include a minimum of three peer-reviewed citations.
Citations must include outside sources and no more than one citation from assigned course readings may be used each week.
While the discussion board tool limits the ability to use APA formatting (e.g., hanging indents), posts must include the required elements of an APA in-text citation and list of references.
