ACADEMIC SUCCESS AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN PART 2: STRATEGIES TO PROMOTE ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND PROFESSIONAL ETHICS

Nurse-scholars have a significant obligation to their community as well. Their work must have academic and professional integrity. Their efforts are designed to add to the body of knowledge, advance the profession, and ultimately help in the care of patients. Work that lacks integrity is subject to erode quickly or worse.

Fortunately, there are strategies and tools that can help ensure integrity in academic and professional work. This Assignment asks you to consider these tools and how you might apply them to your own work.

In this Assignment you will continue developing your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan by appending the original document you began in the previous assignment.
