Share your understanding of what being “part of the body” of Christ really means and if you believe there is any correlation to your role as a nursing scholar.

Background information

In Christ, we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

(Romans 12:5)

Each of us is one with Christ and important as part of “the body” of believers. As individual nurses, we represent one perspective, but we are also a part of a greater whole – the profession of nursing. What is your understanding of being “part of the body” of Christ? How does this relate to being part of a larger professional body – are there any similarities or differences? What does individual responsibility mean as a member of the body?

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.
