Recommend types of activities to promote cognitive strength.
Discuss how maintaining social connections and activities can lessen the impact of midlife changes.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
Nurses are vital to healthcare due to the extended time they spend with the patients in comparison to other professions. Despite the crucial role, the number of nurses has been falling in the United States. The shortage, which is primarily with changing work dynamics, is being addressed through human resource management strategies.
Factors related to the job environment are mainly responsible for the nursing problem. The professionals have a higher attrition rate than is the rate of nurses being trained, recruited, and retained. According to Gan (2020), a large proportion of nurses fall under the baby boomer generation, and most of them are retiring from practice. Additionally, nursing is often considered tiring and less promising in terms of career growth and development. What is more, a substantial number of young nurses exit to train for other roles in psychiatry and medicine. Therefore, these factors have led to a reduction in the number of nurses.
Nursing administrators currently implement human resource management strategies to address the causes of the problem. They motivate the existing nurses to reduce the number of practitioners taking early retirement. They also provide opportunities for career development to help young individuals view nursing as a growth-oriented career. Furthermore, nurses are offered more flexibility to reduce occupational issues, such as work-related stress and burnout. Therefore, the nursing profession is currently adopting motivation strategies to minimize the shortage.
Human resource strategies are being used to address the nursing shortage currently facing the health sector. Such issues as a low rate of nurse recruitment compared with high proportion of old nurse attrition and unattractive conditions within the profession are to blame for the apparent shortage. The only way to address this shortage is responding to the underlying issues.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
