Abstract
Abstracts are research tools that can help you readers determine if the scope of your article/essay will help them in their own research. In APA, abstracts are typically 150-250 words in length and provide an evaluative summary of the essay to follow. The personal opinion of the author is strictly prohibited in abstracts. Unlike a body paragraph, the first line of an abstract is not tabbed-in. For many student essays, especially in lower-numbers courses, an abstract will not be required; still, it is good to practice this skill. 

Title of Assignment
In APA style, the introduction of the essay should begin here, followed by the body paragraphs. APA is typically a more formal style than most students are accustomed to using in a writing course. For the purposes of this course, the level of formality should be based on the assignment. For example: APA asks that students always write in third person (avoiding words such as I, me, we, our(s), you, your(s), etc). Certain rhetorical modes, however, don’t cater well to third person (narrative and reflection writing are two such examples). In these situations, first person (I, me, we, our(s)) may be, and should be employed; second person (you, your(s)) should be avoided in all academic writing unless an essay is specifically designed to relay instructions (there are few assignments that will employ second person). 

Like any essay, students should make sure their essays are formatted with one-inch margins, with their text exclusively in Times New Roman 12-point font, and students should double space their lines. This document can be downloaded and used as a template wherein students may simply replace names, titles, dates, and so on with their own information.  
The final page of this document will demonstrate a References page. If a student uses information from any source, that source must be identified within the text and listed on a References page. These citations should be listed in alphabetical order and, opposite to the way a normal paragraph works, the first line should be flush left and each following line should be tabbed in. Though there is really no substitute for a good APA Style Manual, students can refer to a citation generator such as http://www.citationmachine.net/apa/cite-a-book to ensure proper formatting. Any further questions should be directed to the instructor of the course. 
Assignment-3 – Position papers
You will select one health care stakeholder for each of your Assignment-3 position papers.
Examples of stakeholders are Federal Government, Local Government, Providers, Nurses and Clinical staff, Pharmaceutical, etc. 
You will discuss the involvement of the stake holder, ethics or law, finance and funding, the benefits and disadvantage, the influence the stakeholder has on the health system and the future for the stake hold. You need to support your statement with peer-reviewed journal articles, but I will also accept .gov websites.
Your assignment-3 paper should have 5 – 7 full pages of content. A full page would not allow me to type anything at the end of the page. If I can type anything at the end of the page, it is not a full page. The content pages do not include the title page, abstract page, and the reference pages. You should have at least three peer reviewed journal articles as reference resources. Peer reviewed journal have doi numbers, make sure to list your journal article in APA format with the doi numbers.
Your paper should be in APA format.

Positioning Stakeholder – Assignment-3 Papers
The paper should offer information and insight of areas not covered in the course content for the topic. It should be between 5 and 7 full pages of text writing, excluding the title page, Abstract, and reference pages. Minimum of 3 scholarly articles from peer-reviewed journals (peer-reviewed journal articles have doi numbers). It is a requirement to list doi number in your reference list. Additionally, the 3 peer-review journal articles need to be drafted in the last five years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017). There should be a minimum of four references. It will allow students to use textbooks, dissertations, government web sites and organizational websites after they fulfil the peer-review journal requirement. The references should be listed in the reference list at the end of the paper. Each article has to be cited at least once in the text of the paper.  Direct quotes are not recommended and avoid paraphrasing authors.  We expect students to read the articles and write in their own words when citing the articles in the text.  The quality of written assignments is strongly based on the ability of students to do critical thinking.  The papers need to follow the American Psychology Association (APA, 6th ed.) writing style for academic and scholarly papers.
