Assignment: Gynecologic Health
Assignment: Gynecologic Health
Choose a patient who you examined as a nurse practitioner student during the last three weeks of OB/GYN clinical. Address the following in a SOAP Note 1 OR 2 PAGES with this patient in mind:
Subjective: What information about the patient’s personal and medical history did she provide?
What observations did you make during the physical examination?
Evaluation: What were your possible diagnoses? Provide at least three possible diagnoses. List them in order of importance, highest to lowest. What was your primary diagnosis, and why was it so?
What was your strategy for diagnostics and primary diagnosis? What was your treatment and management strategy, including alternative therapies? Include a rationale for this treatment and management plan, as well as pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments, alternative therapies, and follow-up parameters for this patient.
Most importantly: Notes for reflection: What would you change in a similar patient evaluation?

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so
indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
CLASSROOM ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS
Questions for Discussion (DQ)
Initial DQ responses should address all aspects of the questions posed, include at least one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words long.
Responses that are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source are considered successful.
Responses of one or two sentences, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and off-topic responses will not be considered substantive. The length of substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the week’s readings (if applicable) into your responses.
Participation every week
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ are graded separately and do not count toward participation.
Along with the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three different days, for a total of three replies.
A scholarly source/citation is not required for participation posts (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments is part of your weekly participation. These announcements are made to ensure that you are aware of everything that is due this week.
APA Style and Writing Ability
Learn how to use APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for the majority of your degree’s writing assignments. For APA paper templates, citation examples, and tips, go to the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, which can be found under the Resources tab in LoudCloud. Points will be deducted for poor APA format use or the absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all information sources! Cite the source whenever possible. A citation is also required when paraphrasing.
I strongly advise using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Utilization of Direct Quotes
At the Masters’ level, I discourage the use of direct quotes in DQs and assignments and deduct points accordingly.
It is critical that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources as Masters’ level students. Simply repeating someone else’s words does not demonstrate comprehension or critical analysis of the content.
It is preferable to paraphrase and cite your sources.
Please make sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me for assignments that must be submitted to LopesWrite.
Please review your report once you have received it. This report will highlight grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that are simple to correct. Instead of being penalized for these errors, spend a few extra minutes reviewing.
Examine your similarities. Did you leave something out? Did you not paraphrase correctly? Is your paper dominated by someone else’s ideas rather than your own?
For tips on improving your paper and SI score, go to the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, which can be found under the Resources tab in LoudCloud.
Policy Regarding Late Arrivals
The university’s late assignment policy is a 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also holds true for late DQ responses.
If you anticipate having to submit an assignment late, please contact me. With advance notice, I am happy to be flexible. Due to extenuating circumstances, we may be able to work out an extension.
If you do not contact me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will apply.
Unless we have worked out an extension, I will not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late.
No assignments are accepted after the last day of class, per policy. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the final day of class will not be graded.
The importance of communication cannot be overstated. There are numerous ways to contact me:
Questions to the Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask questions about course content or assignments. If you have a question, chances are that one of your colleagues does as well. This is the class’s public forum.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum where you can ask me questions or leave messages for me. At least once every 24 hours, this will be checked.
