    INDIANAPOLIS — All But Dissertation, or ABD — the dreaded term no PhD or master’s student trying to complete his or her dissertation or capstone project wants to hear. Writing a final paper to earn an advanced degree is a daunting task, even for the most confident candidate. Nurses are no exception.

    Karen Roush, PhD, APN, knows more than a thing or two about writing one of these final papers. Her new book A Nurse’s Step-By-Step Guide to Writing Your Dissertation or Capstone, published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), is a straightforward how-to guide that will help students plan and write the perfect finale to their education. She delves into the fundamentals of exactly what the student needs, with a short, concise guide.

    Roush knows that the nursing field rarely prompts students to focus on their writing skills. Her role as a writing mentor with years of experience as an editorial director and clinical managing editor encouraged her to create this clear, highly practical step-by-step guide for the busy student nurse, coaching readers through the scholarly writing process in an engaging, conversational style.

    “While working on my doctorate, I was often asked to help other doctoral students with writing up their dissertations, and oftentimes their professors recommended they contact me,” Roush said. “Through working with them I realized how unprepared students were for the writing aspect of dissertation work and how that often impeded their progress and resulted in a lot of frustration. It was rewarding to help them overcome that, and writing this book is a way of reaching many more doctoral students who are struggling with the writing.”

    The book is available at www.nursingknowledge.org/sttibooks.
