The purpose of this Assignment is to explore the various meanings behind one concept in the field of nursing. It is important to understand that while professionals from various fields will use the same word, they often carry very different meanings. Likewise, it is important for every health professional to be able to explain the meaning/use/interpretation of a term to patients in a way that they can understand. To complete this Assignment, you will explore the various definitions of a single word (concept) and compile a detailed description of theses definitions and interpretations of that word.
To begin, select a word (concept) familiar to you in health care that has multiple interpretations and uses, e.g., heart. The heart is an organ, a muscle, a control center, a source of emotion, etc. Examples to choose from include, but are not limited to:
Feel free to be creative in your choice of terms. You will provide a description of uses, definitions, and varied interpretations of the term using a variety of multiple academic disciplines outside the discipline of nursing. Academic disciplines to choose from include, but are not limited to:

Pay particular attention to the section on rhetorical modes for developing paragraphs because this is where you will learn how to describe and explain a concept to patients in effective and accurate ways.
To complete this Assignment, you will write a fully developed paragraph (at least five sentences in length) on each definition/use/interpretation of the term you have chosen. For those definitions or uses that pertain to the nursing profession, you will explain the concept in such a way that includes examples, analogies, and self-explanatory descriptions.
