Order Details
Overview
During the past several weeks of this course, you have been studying and practicing techniques for completing the physical examination of various body systems of your clients across the lifespan. In the true spirit of holistic nursing, the overall objective of your Final Project is for you to examine the social, cultural, economic, and political factors that impact on health assessment across the lifespan.
In order to complete this project you will need to choose one client from across the lifespan. If you do not have access to a client across the lifespan in your current practice setting, then you may find an individual in your personal life to assess as needed. Once you have selected your client, you may proceed through the assessment as indicated below in Required Components of your paper.
Format
The paper is to be 7-10 pages in length, not including the cover page or the reference page. Your paper will be written in APA format. The paper will be graded using the grading criteria for journal assignments, which is found in your Course Resources folder. Please remember to support your statements with evidence from your textbook, supplemental readings i.e. current journal articles. An excellent website for current research is the Pub Med database, which can be accessed at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez.
Your final paper will be due Wednesday of Week 8 by midnight
