Nursing administrators have a responsibility to remain current with knowledge of emerging trends in healthcare and their potential impact on nursing practice, safe and quality patient care, and the costs, risks, and/or benefits to the organization. How these trends or issues translate into practice is often determined by legal and regulatory actions as well as nursing standards of practice.

The focus of the quarterly regional meeting of your state nurses’ association is on current issues/trends affecting nursing practice. The meeting will be divided into three group forums, each focused on a different trend/issue. You have been asked to provide a short paper on one of the current trends/issues occurring in healthcare delivery that will be the focus of one of the group forums.

Trends and Issues in Current Nursing Practice

Mandatory Overtime
Patient Violence to Nursing

For this assignment, you will select one of the three topics above about which you will develop an expository type of essay to be shared among the members of the group forum. (An expository essay is one that presents factual, unbiased information on a subject.) Each section provides calls for specific and factual information about the topic, with one section at the end for your opinion and rationale based on your findings from your exploration. Therefore, following the provided outline/format provided is key to a successfully written paper.

Use the following format outline/template for your paper to complete your assignment. Bold-type is used here for emphasis only. Follow the guidelines for use of bold-type and headings using the most current edition of the APA manual. Notice there is NO HEADING for the introductory paragraph, and the title of the paper should be at the beginning just before the introductory paragraph. There is also no running head.
