Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Concerns about increasing rates of academic dishonesty, including various forms of cheating and plagiarism, are on the rise globally. Faculty teaching in the BScN for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) Program at York University recognized the need to contextualize academic honesty within professional standards. The result was an approach that supported both professional and academic socialization for new-to-Ontario nurses that helped to bridge varying cultural backgrounds and expectations. At the same time, teaching-learning opportunities focusing on fairness, transparency, and ethical conduct became the larger focus. By implementing a trial of TurnItIn, a plagiarism checking software service, and tailoring its use such that learners were able to view their own reports and re-submit assignments as many times as they chose to do so, faculty and students experienced a positive, collaborative approach to academic honesty. While ensuring that professional and academic standards are met, student writing skills and confidence are simultaneously enhanced.
