Management Orientation Proposal
Management Orientation Program Proposal
Develop an orientation program for new nurse managers using the Orientation Proposal template for your orientation proposal. On the template are additional resources for this project, including examples of management orientation programs. Include at least five scholarly references.
Management Orientation Proposal
You do not need an abstract. Begin this page with the title of your paper on the first line. Notice the title is identical to your title page—just copy and paste. Remember the introduction does not have a heading that says, Introduction. In this section you want to entice readers to continue reading, and let them know what to expect from your paper—“tell ‘em what you are going to tell ‘em”. Say something like: The purpose of this paper is to present a proposal for the development of a new manager orientation program. Make it your final sentence. To learn more about purpose statements, see: Writing Effective Purpose Statements. To learn more about writing a great introduction, see: UNC Writing Center: Introductions.
