The Article That Was Useful and The Article That Was Not Helpful

An example of a research article I found helpful in my nursing practice was “Impact of Information and Communication Technologies on Nursing Care.” The journal article clearly illustrates the positive influence of information technology in health care delivery and the role of nurses in attaining improved service delivery in information management, decision making, and communication (Rouleau et al., 2017). Reading the article increased my understanding of the role of information technology in nursing practice. Additionally, I have encountered literature that had irrelevant information about the nursing practice because it has incomplete information. The research article did not exhaustively discuss the subject in question. My search was based on the importance of the art of nursing in the nursing practice, but most of the information provided in the investigation did not touch on the subject’s importance to the nursing practice.

Adaptability is my second strength. The self-assessment revealed several aspects related to and informing this strength. One of them is that I like living in the moment. Rather than perceive the future as a fixed destination, I see it as a place I can create out of the choices I make right now. Due to this, I discover my future one choice at a time. This strength allows me to respond willingly and adjust accordingly depending on the demands of the moment, even if doing so will pull me away from my initial plans. My adaptability has allowed me to excel numerous times, especially when encountering an unforeseen detour. A perfect illustration of this strength at play was when my friends and I planned to meet up at a café in the afternoon to discuss an assignment. Unfortunately, the immense rainfall made it challenging for us to meet up. However, rather than canceling the meeting, I requested that we have a virtual meeting instead of a physical one. This adaptability allowed us to meet, albeit virtually,

For your final research paper in this course, you will write an analytical research paper addressing a major issue of your choosing from among the topics covered in this course. As a research paper, your paper will have to answer a significant puzzle related to a course topic.

For this assignment, you are essentially doing the first three elements of your research paper outlined below.

Title Page of the Paper: The title of your paper should be brief but should adequately inform the reader of your general topic and the specific focus of your research. Keywords relating to parameters, population, and other specifics are useful. The Title Page must include the title, name, course name and number, and Professor’s Name.

Introduction, Research Question, and Hypothesis: This section shall provide an overview of the topic that you are writing about, a concise synopsis of the issues, and why the topic presents a “puzzle” that prompts your research questions, which you will include. This section will be 1-2 pages. End your introduction with your research question.

Review of the Literature: All research projects include a literature review to set out for the reader what knowled


ge exists on the subject under study and helps the researcher develop the research strategy to use in the study. A good literature review is a thoughtful study of what has been written, a summary of the arguments that exist (whether you agree with them or not), arranged thematically. At the end of the summary, there should still be gaps in the literature that you intend to fill with your research. It is written in narrative format and can be from 4-6 pages depending on the scope and length of the paper.

As a literature review, this section should identify the common themes and theories that the prior research identified. In this section, what you do is look at the conclusions of prior research and identify what the common themes are you see in those conclusions. You then identify those themes.

Technical Requirements

  • Your paper must be at a minimum of 5-9 pages (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).
  • Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content.
  • Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space.
  • Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.
  • Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc.
  • All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric

In addition, when advancing their causes, these hacktivists often commit crimes such as website redirects, website defacements, distribution of malware, data theft and disclosure, sabotage, and Dos and DDoS attacks. Hacktivists use these tactics to gain illegal access to their target websites, data, and systems (Scheuerman, 2016). An illustration of this is what took place in Uganda, where websites operated by the Uganda Investment Authority and the Uganda State House got defaced by political hacktivists. After gaining access to the websites, these hacktivists posted a picture of Adolf Hitler, a Nazi swastika, and replaced text with pictures of a scary clown
