NR566: Week 5: Immunization Assignment

Purpose 

The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize the student with the most recent guidelines and recommendations  for vaccine -preventable illnesses in the United States.  

Activity Learning Outcomes 

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Identify vaccines available in the US market for vaccine-preventable disease and describe their features (CO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6). 
  2. Identify contraindications and precautions for the use of vaccines available (CO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6).
  3. Use recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) to identify target groups for receipt of each vaccine (CO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6). 

Due Date 

Assignment should be submitted to the Week 5 Immunization Assignment  dropbox by  Sunday 11:59 p.m. MST at the end of Week 5. When the assignment is placed in the dropbox, it will automatically be submitted to Turnitin. You may submit the assignment one additional time before the due date to lower the Turnitin score. If you choose to resubmit, the second submission will be considered final and subject to grading.   Once the due date for the assignment passes, you may not resubmit to lower a Turnitin score.  

This assignment will follow the late assignment policy specified in the course syllabus. 

Students are expected to submit assignments by the time they are due. Assignments submitted after the due date and time will receive a deduction of 10% of the total points possible for that assignment for each day the assignment is late. Assignments will be accepted, with penalty as described, up to a maximum of three days late, after which point a zero will be recorded for the assignment. 

In the event of a situation that prevents timely submission of an assignment, students may petition their instructor for a waiver of the late submission grade reduction. The instructor will review the student’s rationale for the request and make a determination based on the merits of the student’s appeal. Consideration of the student’s total course performance to date will be a contributing factor in the determination. Students should continue to attend class, actively participate, and complete other assignments while the appeal is pending.

Total Points Possible:  50

Preparing the Paper: 

  1. The Immunization assignment is worth 5 0 points and will be graded on  use of Standard English grammar, sentence structure, and overall organization based on the required components as summarized in the directions and grading criteria/rubric. 
  2. Submit the paper as a Microsoft Word Document, which is the required format at Chamberlain University. You are encouraged to use  the  APA Academic Writer when creating your assignment. 
  3. Follow the directions below and the  grading criteria  located in the rubric closely. Any questions about this paper may be posted under the Q & A Forum or emailed to your faculty.  
  4. The length of the paper should be 2- 4  pages, excluding title page and reference page(s). The title and reference pages should be in APA format.
  5. Vaccination schedules should be obtained directly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Resources for Healthcare Providers website and reflect the most current recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Additional scholarly resources should be used and all sources  must be cited appropriately.
