Friday, November 18, 2016

Sharon Hawks, Kathleen Turner, Anne Derouin, Rémi Hueckel, Marilyn Oermann along with former DUSON Research and Education Librarian and Liaison Adrianne Leonardelli published an article entitled "Writing Across the Curriculum: Strategies to Improve the Writing Skills of Nursing Students" in the Nursing Forum.

Abstract: Writing across the curriculum (WAC) is a strategy in which writing instruction occurs in classes outside of composition, literature, and other English courses. This literature review was conducted to identify and synthesize the peer-reviewed literature about WAC in nursing education. Strategies, assignments, and courses intended to promote writing skills of nursing students were documented in this literature review; however, further evaluation is needed to determine which are most effective.
