An introduction typically begins with a few general statements (three to five) about the topic, followed by a purpose. An example of a purpose statement for this assignment would be: The purpose of this discussion is to review the literature to determine the reasons why the bachelors degree in Nursing (BSN) is necessary.

Remember, paragraphs have at least three to five substantive statements.
Under this heading, create a paragraph to describe why BSN nurses are needed. Remember to follow the APA tips. Paragraphs have at least three to five substantive statements and should contain some of your own words.
