ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT: Discussion: Clinic or Community Agency

Question Description
In this Discussion, you will select a clinic or community agency within the community. The organization you select must serve the needs of a vulnerable population group. Research the clinic or agency to obtain a clear idea of services provided and the specific population it serves. It is not necessary for you to make an on-site visit. However, you must cite the source(s) from which you obtained the information about the clinic or community agency.

Examples of clinical or community health agencies:

Employee/Occupational Health
Infection Control in hospitals
Public Health Department
Refugee Centers
Child/Adult Protective Services
School Health Clinic
Halfway House: Drug Abuse, Prison, etc.
Homeless Center
Public Clinics: Pediatric, Psychiatric, OB, Geriatric, Migrant, etc.
Rehab Program: Cardiac, etc.
Shelters: Homeless, Women’s, etc.
HIV/AIDS programs/clinics
Veterans’ agencies
Adolescent Programs
Group homes for MHMR clients, etc.
Support groups for cancer, sexual abuse, etc. survivors

Research the selected agency, and using the following *headings, discuss:

Name of agency and why you selected this agency;
Brief history and mission of the agency;
Target population the agency serves;
Services and programs offered;
What criteria (i.e. income, age, etc.) must clients meet in order to be served by the agency; and
What you found interesting about this agency or helpful for you as a professional nurse.
Cite and reference the information you report on, as appropriate.
Please post your initial response by 23:59 Wednesday of Module 5, and comment on the posts of two classmates by 23:59 Saturday.

A rubric is provided to explain the criteria for points and how you are graded. *A 5 point penalty will be applied to postings lacking the headings listed above.

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.
