Read chapter 19 of the class textbook and review the attached PowerPoint presentation. Once done, answer the following questions;
- Mention and discuss the Healthy People 2020 wellness goals and objectives for older adults.
- Define and discuss the aging process and the demographic characteristics of the elderly population in your community.
- Identify and discuss nursing actions that address the needs of older adults.
- Mention and discuss health/illness concerns common to the elderly population.
As stated in the syllabus present your assignment in an APA format word document, Arial 12 font attached to the forum in the discussion tab of the blackboard titled “Week 13 discussion questions” and the SafeAssign exercise in the assignment tab of the blackboard(which is mandatory). A minimum of 3 evidence-based references besides the class textbook no older than 5 years must be used and quoted according to APA guidelines and must be from a gerontology journal. You must post two replies to any of your peers sustained with the proper references no older than 5 years in two different days to verify attendance and as well make sure the references are properly quoted and mention to whom you are replying to. The reply is a comment to your peer, not an extension of what you posted in your assignment. What I mean is that you can’t post in your replies the same that you posted in your assignment. A minimum of 800 words is required. Please make sure to follow the instructions as given and use either spell-check or Grammarly before you post your assignment. I will also pay close attention to spelling and/or grammar. Please review the rubric attached to the lecture. You must present the assignment according to how it is posted, answering the questions by number and essay-style assignments will not be accepted unless otherwise specified. I’ve been grading a lot of assignments with quite a few spelling/grammar errors. As a BSN student, you should be able to present an assignment according to APA and without errors. This reflects our University.
We are entering week 13 of our course which means we are entering the final curve and your performance in the class will influence your grade. As students close graduation perhaps planning to continue graduate studies it is very important that you follow the instructions as given.
Please check your assignment after the week is due because I either made comments or ask for clarification in some statements.
If you have any questions, please contact me via FNU email.
