As noted in the previous section, properly citing your work is the key to avoiding plagiarism. In nursing, APA Style is the preferred citation style. See the resources below for more help with APA style.
As you begin working with more and more references, and completing assignments for different courses on varying subjects, you may find that you have a lot of references and articles to keep track of. We recommend using RefWorks, citation management software provided by FNU. See the link below for detailed information on setting up an account and using RefWorks. Besides RefWorks, there are other free citation management software programs available. Check out the free citation management info guide linked below if you are interested in trying one of those programs.
