Introduction – this section must contain the following:
The name of the healthcare profession
General description about the profession

Wrap up the conclusive section with a closing note that provides brief information about anything additional that stands out to you about the profession and its future in health care.
Reference Section – this section must contain the following:
Be sure to cite internal to the outline. Referencing should occur throughout the outline via parenthetical citations anytime you paraphrase or make direct quotes just as it should in your final paper.
Your outline should also include a reference page listing 5-10 credible sources researched for your outline/paper.
NOTE: Failure to properly cite references can be construed as academic dishonesty and can result in points lost to no credit on an assignment. Multiple instances of academic dishonesty may result in disciplinary action. PLEASE ask me if you have any questions on how to cite.

Please make note of the following tips and tricks:
We understand that this is a rough draft and as your research and writing continue over the next few weeks, details may be added or changed. Although you do not have to resubmit it to me, I recommend that you update this outline to help you best complete your final paper.
Write your outline so that it has detailed bullets that you can easily then flesh out into sentences for the body of your research paper (Assignment 3).
After your outline is complete, I recommend that you next draft your introductory and conclusion paragraphs. This will ensure that all the main points of the outline are incorporated in these two framing paragraphs.
Please note that less than 10% of your outline or research paper (Assignment 3) should contain direct quotes.
You must submit your Outline as a “Microsoft Word” document rather than a Word Pad, Works, etc. document; otherwise, you will not receive credit for your outline. Title your file name as SCIN360_Outline_FirstnameLastname.doc
