occurs frequently in daily life. When you tell your employer anything you and he or she discussed the previous evening, she is persuaded to assume that these are your thoughts and views even if they are the combined results of discussions you two had. Whoever actually believes that this is plagiarism? By not giving your spouse credit for the concept or the conversation, you are still presenting it as your idea and your words. This amounts to plagiarism. Plagiarism can happen in a number of different ways, including the well-known type where you intentionally steal someone else’s words and paste them into your work as your own. Then there is the type of plagiarism where you attempt to sum up what you have read but mistakenly use many of the same phrases without changing them to your own terms and properly attributing the quote to the original source. I’ll be honest—I honestly never considered that repeating rumors is a . You are essentially plagiarizing the person who told you the information you are now relaying to someone else if you don’t give them credit for it.
how plagiarizing as a student affects the integrity of a baccalaureate degree, the public perception of the nursing profession, and evidence-based practice. Describe two things you will do to ensure academic integrity in your work
Re: Topic 1 DQ 2
. Summarizing without acknowledgement of the original author is . Paraphrasing and copying quotes without disclosing who said those words are two more examples. When plagiarism happens, it devalues a baccalaureate program by
diluting the integrity of those involved. Sharing words, thoughts, and ideas from others can validate and confirm one’s own ideas. The opposite happens when we don’t. It is important to know the proper ways to recognize the original author in a person’s writings.
Nurses are very bright individuals. When plagiarism is involved, it discredits the nurses own thoughts. Evidence Based practice needs to have the proper guidelines to ensure that the proper views are shared. There needs to be confirmation of research and facts to make the evidence valid.
I will make sure that whenever I am writing down another person’s quotes, words, or ideas, that I will include the original author. If I am putting the writings into my own words or paraphrasing, the original content needs to be recognized. I will do that by citing my information. I will also use the tool that checks your paper for similarities before submission. I will give credit where credit is due.

in the fact that we as nurses hold a public service position, and with this position we are held not only to a higher standard, but the public expects that because we are nurses will tell them the truth. As nurses we are also expected to keep their private information to ourselves. Who hasn’t had a crazy day and thinks to yourself OMG, I cant wait to tell my spouse about all the crazy patients i dealt with today? But as Nurses we are all taught about HIPPA and because of this patient right, they tell us things that you are not expected to tell anyone, in order to be able to properly care for them. If you as a Nurse can’t even be truthful and honest when writing an essay, then how can the public trust you to keep their private information to yourself?
“What do you call the last doctor to graduate from medical school?: a doctor,” everyone has heard. It’s the same in this case. If you copy someone else’s work, you might get away with it, but what kind of nurse are you? Are you going to be the nurse we’ve all met who thought to herself, “Well, if she can be a nurse, I shouldn’t have too much trouble”? It’s difficult to say, but cheating and lying your way through school will not help you. You might have felt less stressed because you didn’t have to spend as much time on your paper, but you’re depriving yourself of knowledge that could have helped you become a better nurse if you had taken the time to properly research and write your research paper.
To avoid plagiarism, I intend to give myself enough time to conduct appropriate research and to give credit where credit is due. My essays will be written in my own words, expressing my thoughts and feelings on a given topic. If I need to use someone else’s words to make a point, I’ll quote them and cite them.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
- Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
- Successful responses 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.
- One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
- I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
- Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
- In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
- Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
- Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
- Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
- Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
- I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
- I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
- As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
- It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
- For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
- Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
- Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
- Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
- The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
- Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
- If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
- I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
- As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
- Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
- Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
- Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.

is when another person’s words or ideas are used without acknowledging the source, which may be unintentional or intentional (Khadilkar 2018). Three examples of plagiarism are copy and pasting, minimalist paraphrasing, and patchworking (Goodwin & McCarthy, 2020). Copy and pasting is where an individual takes another person’s work and presents it as their own without giving credit to the source. Minimalist-paraphrasing is where a student changes some words to alter the original idea. Patchworking involves the student taking information from different sources, putting it together, and presenting it as the student’s own.
because it will lead to distrust in the profession. If nursing students are not educated the right way and allowed to copy other people’s work without doing the needed research, the public will not trust nurses. Behaviors such as dishonesty are not allowed in nursing, and maintaining high-level education standards creates confidence in the profession. Nursing students and researchers can discover various approved patient care methods based on scientific evidence by doing proper research. Nurses are, therefore, able to incorporate these findings into their practices to improve patient outcomes (Falkner, 2018).
I will spend time researching my information using credible sources and citing my source of information. By avoiding unintentional plagiarism, I will also use the Grand Canyon University plagiarism tool called lopeswrite to check my papers before submitting them to my instructor.
