• Please review the marking Rubric and see the weighting for each question. This should guide your answers along with the suggested word limit for each. Note: word limits are suggestion ONLY. The whole assessment is 1800words +/-10%
• This is not an essay however I do expect full sentence structure and academic writing,
• The word count is minimal therefore your answers need to be concise. (this is a skill of academic writing). You do not have the word limit to ramble.
• Please use headings such as 'Question 1'; 'Question 2' etc. and then answer the question beneath. This will save your word count.
• For Question 3 you can use dot points for each intervention to save on word count but please maintain proper sentences structure. And you still must provide enough explanation so the reader knows what your nursing intervention involves and why?
