Week 2 Assignment for HCA 675 Grand Canyon
Paper on Health Care Reform
Write a paper of 1,000-1,200 words in which you list the top five elements of the health-care system that, in your opinion, require the most reform. Justify your choices with a logical analysis of how the elements will affect the current system.
To incorporate specific examples and details into your paper, refer to the assigned readings.
Prepare this assignment in accordance with the APA guidelines found in the Student Success Center’s APA Style Guide. There is no need for an abstract.
This assignment is graded using a rubric. Because instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment, students should review it before beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion.
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.
