This course requires you to submit the course project in Module Nine. However, you’ll complete multiple preparation assignments along the way to guide you to a successful submission of the project.
For this assignment, you will identify credible resources aligning with four critical sections of the course project. You will list your resources in a reference document using APA format and briefly describe how each resource is appropriate for the project. Your submission does not need to be structured like an annotated bibliography, but it should have enough resources to help you get started with the course project. The preparation work you will submit through this assignment will help you complete the course project on time.
Create a reference document that lists the resources for the course project. Refer to the “Getting Started with Research at Shapiro Library” section of the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—Graduate, located in the Start Here section of the course, to help you complete this assignment.
If you need writing support, access the Online Writing Center through the Academic Support module of your course.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
- Content: Identify at least two resources for each of the four critical sections in the course project: Strategic Planning, Healthcare Reimbursement, Revenue Cycle Process, and Reimbursement Compliance. Do not include any resources provided in any of the Module Resources sections throughout the course.
- Relevance: Describe the relevance of the resources you identified in a short paragraph, using two to three sentences for each resource. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- Credibility: Explain why the sources you identified are credible, scholarly and/or professional resources and the importance of including credible sources as evidence to support your claims. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- Gap Assessment: Identify gaps in your research and determine how to close these gaps. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
All the claims in your deliverable should be evidence based. Your citations should be from your independent search for evidence (not from the scenario, textbook, or module resources) of credible sources and be current within the last five years. You are required to cite a minimum of two sources, at least one of which should be separate from your own research.
