Preparing the Presentation
- Must be a professional, scholarly prepared PowerPoint presentation of 8-10 slides including at least five scholarly references.
- You should have at least 8-10 slides, not including the title slide and reference slides.
- Speaker notes are present for each slide. It is important to note that if you could not give your presentation and someone would have to stand in for you, he or she would need to know what you were going to say. Use the speaker-notes section so that someone may step in for you and not miss a beat.
- Maintain the 6x6x6 rule for a professional PowerPoint presentation. No more than 6 lines per slide, 6 words per line, and 6 slides without a graphic.
- All aspects of the presentation must be in APA format as expressed in the 6th edition.
- Ideas and information from professional sources must be cited correctly.
- References may include one dictionary source, one textbook source, and four scholarly peer-reviewed journals published in the last 5 years. Total of six sources. No Wikipedia or CINAHL Nursing guide articles.
- Grammar, spelling, punctuation, and citations are consistent with formal academic writing.
