Academic Integrity and Writing When I think of academic integrity, my thoughts immediately go to something my mom instilled in us a little child. My mom would say, “always do what is right regardless of who is looking.” Although always is a strong word and leaves no room for error, completing an online degree leaves no room for plagiarism. When writing, I attempt to reflect on real-life situations or things I have experienced in my life. Originality is critical because it shows your ability to comprehend a particular subject matter. Comprehension is essential when it comes to online learning because I believe it is solely my responsibility to demonstrate competence. American Psychological Association (APA) was created to help ensure scholarly writing and giving credit to those who have previously completed research. Using APA allows me the chance to improve my writing skills and maintain academic integrity. (Walden University Writing Center, n.d.) Professional practices and scholarly ethics Being a nurse comes with a great deal of responsibility. Every day that I am at work, I have patients, families, employers, and co-workers, depending on me to conduct nursing care professionally. Once a patient is admitted to various healthcare settings, they rely on nurses to be knowledgeable in their skill set. As a competent healthcare provider, I must continue to work on the ability to learn and ask questions when unsure of a situation or circumstance. As a registered nurse, I must take responsibility for my own actions and behaviors when it comes to scholarly ethics. Scholarly ethics requires that I can write in a matter fact, precise, and informative manner.
