Course Project Select ONE of the following three options for your course project
Select ONE of the following three options for your course project.
Your paper should be a well-organized paper of six to eight pages in length (in addition to a title page identifying your name and the course number), clearly articulated, and to the point. Your paper must reflect APA style and contain at least three references other than the textbook, which may include Internet sources, professional journal articles, or other resources from the CSU Online Library.
1. Select a topic covered in the course and have it approved by the instructor. Then conduct research on the topic to determine historical trends and recent developments. Before completing your paper, have your instructor approve your bibliography.
2. You are the Human Resource Director for a 500-bed hospital. You have learned that the American Professionals Union is attempting to unionize your 1,000 registered nurses. The CEO has asked you to draft a plan—either supporting the nurses in their efforts OR attempting to remain union-free. Draft solid arguments—either pro or con—for presentation and recommendation to the CEO.
3. Much political effort has been given to the passage and implementation of the "Employee Free Choice Act." Your local U.S. representative has asked you, the local HR group president, to submit a position paper to her regarding the HR group's position on the strengths and weaknesses of the proposed legislation. Your work could influence the Representative's vote—make your arguments fact-based and strong.
