Cultural and Spiritual Assessment


It is anticipated that the initial discussion post should be in the range of 250-300 words. Response posts to peers have no minimum word requirement but must demonstrate topic knowledge and scholarly engagement with peers. Substantive content is imperative for all posts.

Initial Discussion Question/Prompt

· Document the assessment in the context of a subjective data set that you will use as your discussion post.  Use one of mnemonics presented in this week’s lecture materials to guide your spiritual assessment.

Responses need to address all components of the question, demonstrate critical thinking and analysis, and include peer-reviewed journal evidence to support the student’s position.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with in-text citations and corresponding references in APA format.

Please review the rubric to ensure that your response meets the criteria.
