You may access the Online Library by;clicking on the ?Library? link on the menu bar to the left inside the;electronic classroom. However, NEVER use Wikipedia for your research as anyone;can alter the information on this site making it a poor source of accurate;information.

In addition, there is a risk that your;body may react to some of the pigments used, and initiate an autoimmune;reaction. Do you think that these concerns are valid, realistic and legitimate;or is the medical community overreacting to something that is simply an example;of self-expression and really poses minimal health risks?Don?t forget to back;up your arguments with properly cited references.;Grading/Evaluation of this Forum: Postings;will be evaluated on their quality and the degree to which the postings promote;discussion with classmates.

I always encourage my students to;research the career they plan on striving for to ensure that they "know;what they're getting into". I've seen plenty of students spend a lot of;time and money to get an education only to discover that, for whatever reasons;they are not interested in the "9 to 5" routine of their chosen;career once they graduate. Therefore, your research paper is going to be;devoted to any health related career of your choice. This paper will enable to;you to do the research behind the career you are considering and gain a better;understanding about the job demands, rewards, etc. In addition to this;research, I highly recommend that you take some "free time" to shadow;a professional in the field of your choice or volunteer in the environment for;which you desire to work so you can see the "real-world" pros and;cons of the job. Very often, the academic prep is very different than the;actual work setting/demands. Your education is the most valuable investment you;can make, ensure that you make the right choice and know what you want for the;long term.:);You will write your paper based on;literature researched about your chosen field. Research should come from;scientific information on the internet and research articles at the APUS;Library and you must utilize between 5 and 10 reliable and relevant academic;references. Your paper should include, but not be limited to the following;topics;Name of the healthcare profession;History of the profession;How this career has developed over the;years;Education and training (i.e. internships;residencies, etc);State/National Certification or Exams;required;Continuing Education required;Typical wages and benefits;Employment opportunities and future outlook;of this profession;Work settings (i.e. hospitals, clinics;pharmaceutical companies, etc.);Types of services, duties, and;responsibilities of the job;Types of patients/clients served and/or;types of conditions/disorders treated;Working conditions of the job;How this career is perceived by other;professionals and lay people;If there are any "specialty;areas;Any other general "pros" or;cons" that you come across in your research that are pertinent to;you;Your paper should be written in the THIRD;PERSON taking the individual out of the writing and avoiding pronouns such as;I, we, my, our (first person) and you, yours, your, us, we (second person).
