conducts and summarize a long piece and put them together. PART 2: Strategies for Maintaining Integrity of Work As graduate student nurses, academic integrity is the same important as professional integrity. Bretag (2018) indicated that “there is a correlation between students’ self-reported academic integrity breach behavior at university and unethical conduct in professional practice” (para 2). According to Glasper (2016), a large number of student nurses committing breaches of academic integrity enter their professional register in the same way. Nurse students need to be ethical to maintain our academic integrity to do the best for our patients in every setting. The first strategy to maintain academic integrity and ethics is to be aware of the plagiarism rules. Knowing “fail to adequately cite the original source material from which they took words
and ideas” is considered plagiarism (Walden University Academic Skills Center, n.d.). I did not realize that paraphrasing should have a citation until I learned the rules of plagiarism from the MSN program. I also learned how to properly cite all sources we need to use in the paper. Secondly, I need to build confidence to express my idea or opinion in the paper and improve my time management skills. Sometimes, I do not believe in myself and writing enough to meet the deadline. At last, I need to utilize Grammarly and SafeAssign wisely. SafeAssign can help to identify the problems in writing and improve their writing skills via learning more about the proper use of citations. Grammarly is a great tool to provide feedback or suggestions to the paper.
