Question Description
I need an explanation for this Nursing question to help me study.

Purpose: Aesthetic projects are a form of learning used in nursing education. Carper (1978) describes how aesthetic knowledge is one way of knowing in nursing. Aesthetic knowledge comes from our understanding the look, feel, smell, taste, and sound of things. This understanding triggers us to open up and question what is known and what is experienced as part of our nursing practice and our “time-out” from practice. Aesthetic learning aids our learning in the affective domain, reinforces that nursing knowledge is not just based on what we observe or experience, and hopefully will result in a change of perspective and values (Dyar & Dever, 2019; Sandberg, 2016).

Skills: The purpose of this assignment is to practice the following skills that are essential to your success in this course and in professional life beyond nursing school. Creativity is something each of us have. Just to imagine yourself as a nurse one day requires a creative imagination. Honing your creative side has the potential to help you in solving clinical problems.

Knowledge: In this assignment you will describe and demonstrate understanding of one or more elements of cultural dimensions that guide areas of your life such as social relationships, expression of thoughts, emotions, morality, religious beliefs, rituals, or the use of technology (Giddens, 2017).You will explain the connection of one (or more) of Mayeroff’s caring ingredients to your chosen cultural dimension in a written paragraph for your audience to read. By sharing a piece of you and your family culture, as well as responding to peers in an electronic discussion board environment, you are enhancing empathy and a holistic view of others (Dyar & Dever, 2019).

Task: After selecting a minimum of one Cultural Dimension and one of Mayeroff’s eight ingredients of caring you will write an introduction paragraph and develop then prepare your aesthetic project that can be converted into a media file and posted on the designated Discussion Board in Courseden. •

Sample copy

Peru Missions

Serving in international medical missions has shaped almost every dimension of my culture in some way. I had to demonstrate courage to venture into a foreign country when the final destination was not always known, and the language spoken was not like my own. The alternating rhythm of adapting to my circumstances when there was not always water, shelter, or air conditioning and the patience to be willing to take on these challenges was part of the understanding in my role as a missionary. The alternating rhythms , courage , and patience have followed me into my personal and professional life. Medical missions values caring and respect of others. These are the values that I try to incorporate into my life each day. My PowerPoint presentation illustrates many pictures of my biological and missionary family serving in Peru. There are pictures of joy and sadness, hope and despair, and above all else, caring and respect of others. One of the roles my husband and I believe is important to our family is leading by example to our children. We place value on bringing our children with us and serving side by side in missions as a family. Our experiences in international missions have forever changed our lives, and we value serving others more than words can describe.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.


Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
