DNP 810 Topic 2 Discussion Question 2 PEER Responses
Learners are expected to demonstrate scholarly writing throughout the program in all written work (discussion forum, assignments, final project). Reflect on writing your Scholarly Writing Using Research paper and consider which of the standards of scholarly writing are most challenging for you:
• Identifying appropriate evidence for support (peer-reviewed and scholarly sources).
• Writing in one’s own words and properly citing authors for ideas, findings, etc.
• Writing in APA style.
Describe which is most challenging for you and why. What tools or sites did you use to address the challenges? What strategies will you use to become more proficient? (This response does not require research support.)
You are expected to use the principles of scholarly writing throughout the program without further prompting. Refer to the writing resources in the GCU Library and Student Success Center for ongoing assistance.

Hi Doctoral Students,
I wanted to ensure you are aware of the TRIP (turning research into practice) database for finding current research on your DNP DPI Project concept or question. I think you will find it a very good tool for you to assess a quick search. Take care, Dr. Etheridge

Writing in general is something I truly enjoy doing but writing a fiction essay and demonstrating scholarly writing skills tends to differ quite surprisingly. That is the focus of scholarly writing deems from research upon research of appropriate material that is peer-reviewed and within the scope of study of the research that you are testing in your paper (Irvin, 2019). It is important to have several scholarly sources that are present in the past five years that share a common relationship with the reader, your research needs to reflect your theory so the readers can be on board with your idea that lead for improvement in your present material. Writing a scholarly paper has many steps to follow in developing a well written paper for your research it has to have the right balance of a literature review, testing of your theory, a development into what you want the reader to obtain, learning to write in your own words what you gain from your review of the research way so that you are not plagiarizing in any form and you must be sure to cite all the material correctly to give credit where credit is due (Walden University, 2021).
I think the hardest part for me with writing a scholarly paper is finding the right research that is appropriate for my theory, I have not ever had a hard time with wiring in my own words, but it is the concerned that the material for the literature review is not the right choice or right research. So, it will be one of the areas I will need to real focus on to be successful. As far as citing material in APA format it does worry me some as again it has been quite some time since I wrote a scholarly research paper. I could write a prescription with my eyes closed but this is quite a bit different. So, the truth is I will need to really buckle down a get myself familiar with the library and some of the amazing resources that are at our fingertips. I cannot wait to get started on the literature review.

Hi Margaret,
I appreciate your comments about the difference between writing in general and scholarly writing. This is so true, as a Doctorate, scholarly writing is an expectation and requires not only opinion but now the reason for your opinion is based on sound research. Nice post.

Margaret,
My struggles align very closely with yours. Even though I have been using APA through several programs, it is always a struggle. PERRLA is an add-on program for Microsoft Word that has been a lifesaver. It holds all my references and will even search for the article information, so you do not have to enter it then place it in the correct APA format. PERRLA even does the entire paper set up, so margins, headings, and title page are all following the APA version needed. It has been a massive help with formatting.
Finding the proper research is also a big concern for me. Making lists can be helpful when identifying what you are looking for. Lists that include specific terms to search and then add other words to broaden the search. Tags are also attached to many articles and can help guide you to different sources. (University of Louisville Writing Center, n.d.) These have both helped me in the past find articles that I otherwise would not have found. It’s amazing what you can find in the references of another article. And don’t forget, you can always call the library at GCU for assistance. They are a great help when you need them.

Angela,
It is such a great program. Although it is not free, it is worth the cost. I have been using it since my BSN back in 2014 and still have every reference I have ever used in the database. Another great thing is that you can use the online version to always have your project no matter what computer you are on or use the add-on for word. Between PERRLA and now Grammarly, writing papers will be less of a struggle.

Hello Margaret
You are absolutely right that the hardest part of writing a scholarly paper is finding the right research. There are several reasons why real research is hard: It must be new, so you need to find new ideas that have not been tried out and solutions that no one else saw yet. No one knows how to solve your problems, so no one can really help you. Introductions are difficult to write if you have not properly outlined your ideas and if you are not aware of the structure needed for your assignment. An introduction should not talk vaguely about the topic or give an overly broad background.

Scholarly writing uses a topic or a problem that demonstrate a good research based on fact and evidence that requires critical thinking includes analysis and evaluation. It is the type of writing that graduate -level professional uses in their courses. With nursing students in the DNP/PhD programs, the students are required to communicate in a scholarly manner which is referred to critical communication which is beyond critical thinking (Edmunds, & Waldrop, 2018). As expected it should have a clear and concise written communication style. Academic writing is produced as part of academic work which includes reports that are empirical fieldwork. It includes citation of resources using bibliography or references that are focused on an issue. Scholarly writing should include clear introduction, sufficient overview, supporting documentation such as evidence-based and should have a conclusion. Scholar writer uses clarity, does not use bias articles and with relevant supporting materials.
As a DNP learner, I encountered some challenges that may affect my writing but I do hope that I will overcome it. There are times that I find myself having a hard time using scholarly writing and I think it is because I haven’t been in school for a long time and not familiar with different types of writing. Utilizing correct grammar is also one issue that I encounter from time to time. It is difficult for me to form a sentence or a paragraph expressing my thoughts. Not properly using our library can potentially be a challenge for me because I still have a hard time navigating journals, articles and other resources. To be an effective DNP learner I will ask for help if I need it and on how to use the library correctly. I realized using the APA 7th edition style is helpful and guided me on how to write my paper correctly. I will spend more time learning our GCU library resources, DC Network and other sites that can help me as a DNP learner.

Scholarly writing is also referred to academic writing and it is a different type of writing that is used by academics (Walden University, 2021). It is a writing that requires the writer to study the researched article sources and write about those topics without plagiarizing those authors but to reference their work as we write. It also encourages the writer to produce their original thoughts on the subject either through primary research or synthesis of other researches (Walden University, 2021). Scholarly writing can be intimidating and stressful to most students because they are not familiar with this type of writing but it is a skill that needs to be acquired by learning it, studying the steps and practicing them (Walden University, 2021). It is a form of writing that is required for students of higher education levels especially with graduate and doctoral level students. With nursing students in the DNP/PhD programs, the students are required to communicate in a scholarly manner which is referred to critical communication which is beyond critical thinking (Edmunds, & Waldrop, 2018). This involves the choice of words, tone and objectivity and using the evidence effectively (Walden University, 2021).
As a matter of fact, all the three areas of writing are very challenging to me. One of my difficulties is that I did not get any formal training for scholarly writing which I presume other students did not as well but what we got during school and sometimes we did not grasp the information well. One of my difficulties is finding extra time to settle down and learn the steps of scholarly writing but my strategy will be to find the time to read and study the steps as well as practice them. Also, I will try to find someone who can teach me if possible. I will also be using the GCU sites and tools such as the library and the student success center provided as well as the DNP cites like the DC network and Dr. Fetter’s video post on APA 7th ed. I will

Students encounter many challenges with scholarly writing. The most challenging for me is writing in APA style. According to Ciarocco and Strohmetz (2021), although many resources are available, students have a difficult time adapting to the APA style because there usually is no formal class or training for it. One of the main challenges I have with APA style is citations. I often lose points from assignments because of the wrong capitalization, missed commas or periods, or placing the information in the incorrect order. Aside from citations, I often make mistakes on the actual format of the paper: Margins, indentations, and headers. There are many technicalities to the APA style that students can easily miss (Ciarocco & Strohmetz, 2021).
Prior to starting the program, I purchased the APA Manual and reviewed the basic APA format. I felt the need to because it has been a while since I utilized the APA writing style. With this, I also learned that the APA style can be incorporated into Microsoft Word. I plan to utilize this resource to ensure I meet all the requirements for an APA-style paper. Grand Canyon University also offers multiple resources for APA style in the DC Network such as guides and forums. In addition to the mentioned resources, I also found the Purdue Online Writing Lab to be helpful as it has a designated website for APA formatting.

Hi Audimar,
Thank you for your post. I purchased the APA 7th edition book like you and still having a difficult time using it for my paper. I’ve learned that I should be prepared every single time and I should read it when applying it for my assignment. It is important as a doctorate student that I master this skill in submitting all my paper. Scholarly writing must use correct grammar, evidence-based practice, and correct spelling included.
