Assessment

Assessment strategy

Writing an article which could be submitted for publication in a professional peer reviewed journal encourages you to look at an aspect of emergency care in depth. At level 3, you are encouraged to aim for a journal such as Emergency Nursing.

This assessment strategy encourages you to become familiar with and to critically analyse the appropriate literature in the field as well as to set the subject area in the current national policy context of emergency and urgency care.

Developing additional skills in writing for publication encourages you to develop written communication style and to become critically analytical of your personal writing style in order to further develop your professional voice in the speciality, skills and knowledge as well as contributing to the professional knowledge of this speciality in writing for example a case study for publication.
