Undergraduate and graduate nursing students write in American Psychological Association (APA) Style, an editorial style adopted by the social and behavioral sciences.
Students follow APA guidelines to ensure clear and consistent presentation of written material.
York College nursing students may use an APA template to help them format their written assignments. The template sets up a blank document in APA 6th edition format and automatically formats the reference list.
The APA Template is available on computers in all YCP computer labs.
To open the template, click:
Office Button - New - My Templates - APA6thEd.wiz - OK
Additional APA commands can be found under APA menu.
