Use the article from the Galen Library database that you selected for your Week 5 Discussion. Complete the following steps in a paper using Microsoft Word:

Begin with an APA-formatted title page (be sure to use the 7th edition APA template Download 7th edition APA templateOpen this document with ReadSpeaker docReader ). Insert a page break after the title page to begin your summary.
Beginning on page 2, write a 500-word article summary that includes a topic sentence.
An academic summary focuses on identifying what is most important in the article and relating those facts in APA format. You can use your Academic Writer account for help with APA format.
The topic sentence should tell readers the title of the article, the name of the author, and what you’ve determined the main point of the article to be. This paper should be an attempt at formal, academic writing using APA style. View the following sample paper to guide your APA formatting: Sample APA Style Paper (available in Canvas).
Insert a page break to create your References page. Since you’re going to be summarizing an article that has been published in an academic journal and you’re going to have found that journal in one of Galen Library’s online databases, the reference on the References page will be written as follows:
Author, A. A. (year). Title of the article using sentence capitalization. Name of Journal Using Title Capitalization, volume#(issue#), page range of entry. https://doi.org/xxx

Ex: Jackson, S. (2017). The stages of patient admission. Journal of Nursing, 7(1), 45 – 48. https://doi.org/xxx

Items of note:

For the volume and issue number, you will only list the numbers.
The volume number will be italicized, but the issue number will not be italicized.
Use sentence capitalization for the title of the article; that is, you’re only going to capitalize the first word of the title and any proper nouns.

This document should be formatted according to APA standards:

Times New Roman, 12 pt. font or Calibri, 11 pt. font
Double-spaced lines
1″ margins for the entire document
First-line indent for all new paragraphs
Title page
Page numbers
Reference page with a correctly written APA reference, formatted with hanging indent

Once you’re done with your document, save it and submit it to the Unit 7 dropbox.

Your submission this week will be a Word document (.doc or .docx).
