    Learning about academic misconduct and plagiarism is an important employability skill

    10 November 2016

    As you get stuck into your assignments we thought it was worth reminding you about a blog post that Ruth Chadwick, one of our Senior Nursing Lecturers wrote back in May.

    She talked about the importance of integrity and honesty in our professional lives and how the public expects Health Care practitioners to be open and honest at all times.

    She highlights that it isn’t just Health Care practitioners who are sometimes criticised for their lack of honesty and openness and that the behaviour of other professionals whose role is to contribute to the care and safety of the public sometimes falls short of the high standards that are expected in relation to honesty. Ruth relates the importance of integrity and honesty in the workplace with the academic conduct of students studying at University. read more
