Discuss the access, cost, and quality of quality environments, as well as recent quality initiatives (See Chapter 24 and Table 24.1). Student is to reflect on the relationship between quality measures and evaluation and role development. In addition, describe this relationship and note how the role of the APN might change without effective quality measures. Length: 1500 words, double-spaced, excluding title and reference pages (required) Format: APA 6th Edition Professor Q &A: I typically get a lot of similar questions about the Access, Cost and Quality paper that is due this week. So here are some answers to common questions: Can you provide a better description of the intended topic? Almost everything you need to write this paper can be found in Chapter 24 of Joel. Specifically see headings “Access, Cost, and Quality”, Table 24.1, “Recent Quality Initiatives”, “Measuring Quality and Performance”, and “Advanced Practice Nurse Performance Expectations”. Please feel free to reach out for additional clarification. How strictly do you enforce the page/word length requirement? I am more concerned with the quality of your learning experience and comprehension of the subject material than I am of arbitrary page length requirements. If you have covered the requirements of the assignment fully, I encourage you to use this requirement as more of a guide and assignments may be shorter or longer as necessary (within reason, please don’t submit a 20 page paper). What is the target TurnItIn score? My score didn’t appear right away, what’s wrong? The university sets a target around 15% if memory serves me right. However, this is another point to be used as a guide. Your submission should be mostly in your own words, with supporting quotes when appropriate. This changes based on each assignment and author, so I don’t use an arbitrary number. So for example don’t lose sleep trying to get your 28% down to a 21%. There is sometimes a lag time to get your TurnItIn score. If it doesn’t show up immediately check back in several hours. Is full APA required? Yes. However, author notes, abstracts, and table of contents are NOT required. When you submit your assignment it goes through Turnitin to check how much of your work is duplicated from other sources. When you see the Turnitin report, take the time to correct any quotation, paraphrase, summary, or citation errors. Your goal is to get the lowest “originality” score you can (as close to 0% as you can). Your instructor will make the final determination about acceptable matches in Turnitin. You may edit your submission and resubmit it up to three times or per your instructor’s directions.
