1. APA 7 th edition (2020) format and referencing is required. 2. Do not use sources that are not
peer-reviewed. Websites such as Wikipedia, for example, have not been subjected to review by a
panel of experts and are not appropriate for academic papers. Similarly, newspaper clippings and
popular literature such as Chatelaine magazine are also not usually peer-reviewed and are
therefore not appropriate. The following link is helpful for reference purposes on writing and
using APA style essentials and guidelines. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/506/013.
3. The paper should be 5-7 pages in total length, including the title page, reference page,
and 3-4 pages maximum of text. The text or body of the paper is to include three elements:
an introductory paragraph that outlines the purpose and scope of the paper, the main body of
the paper which discusses the selected topic, and a conclusion which summarizes your
personal understanding of the topic and what you have learned from writing about the topic.
Clarity and precision of communication is more important than length in this paper.
Remember leaders/managers are busy people; hence, it is important to communicate briefly
and in a concise manner with them if you wish them to read your communication and have a
meaningful impact on them
Components of a Scholarly Paper:
1. INTRODUCTION: The paper should begin with an introduction to the topic that outlines the
purpose and scope of your paper. In outlining the purpose of the paper, you will discuss why it is
important to nursing and leadership/management. In outlining the scope, you will identify what
your paper will include. Plan about 1-2 paragraphs (half a page) for your introduction. 2. BODY
OF PAPER: Identify your own beliefs about and experiences with the issue. If the topic lends
itself to comparing or contrasting the topic(s), do so.
4. Synthesize the information you have identified into 3-4 pages maximum of discussion. Please
use headings to organize your work. This aspect involves summarizing what other scholars have
written in a discussion that flows coherently from topic to topic. This section involves essentially
ALL referenced ideas. As such, you must indicate the author(s) by putting the last name(s) and
publication year in brackets ( ). Remember too that while you may include sources from
medicine, psychology, or other disciplines, as a nursing scholar you want to maintain the voice
of nursing. You may find it helpful to write about an issue by including an articulation about
resources and opportunities as well as problems and challenges. Incorporate highlights from
what you have read into the body of the paper to support your discussion. Provide your own
ideas and opinions as this paper is not merely a review of the literature.
5. CONCLUSION: Describe what you have learned in the process of writing this paper. Try to
draw connections among your nursing issue, the authors’ information, and the future of nursing
leadership/management. Plan about 1-2 paragraphs (half a page) for your conclusion.
A few formatting points to help you in the layout of your paper: ✓ Running Head – e.g.
“SHORT TITLE OF PAPER (50 CHARACTERS OR LESS).” In the new 7th edition of APA

Guidelines, a Running Head is NOT required in a “student paper” but it is still required if you
are writing for publication as a professional author. You may include one for practice as a
“future professional author” if you wish but it is not required. ✓ Numbering pages – The title
page is page number 1, see section 2.18 of the APA 7th edition text ✓ Page Break – This very
necessary feature is used so that you can start a ‘clean’ page for the Introduction and Reference
portions of your paper. In a Mac program it is under ‘Insert’ at the top of your computer screen.
✓ Writing Style and Grammar – Consult Chapter 4 of the APA Publication manual (7th ed.) for
specific details on writing.
