Assignment: Professionally Unfulfilled
I need a 3- to 5-page paper in which you do the following:
Consider a time when you were professionally fulfilled. Describe the environment, your job title, and the roles and responsibilities you had. Identify your key intrinsic motivators and explain how they manifested themselves in this situation. Please provide specific examples.
Consider a time when you felt professionally unsatisfied. Describe the environment, your job title, and the roles and responsibilities you had. Explain the absence of the motivator(s) and how it affected your professional performance. Please provide specific examples.
Discuss how, as a nurse manager, you might implement organization- or department-wide changes to create an environment that engages employees through one or more intrinsic motivators.
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.
