Nursing Pathophysiology

Discussion Board Week 3
Each Discussion Board assignment will require 3 posts. Post 1 is a response to the assignment (500 words) to be posted on Wednesday. Each post should contain 3 references: one internal reference (from the book chapter, article/videos used in the course) and two external references (from any reputable business newspaper, magazine or scientific journal).

*All external references require a full citation at the end of the post following the APA 7th edition format.

Grading Criteria: The Discussion Board forums replace the dialogue normally occurring in a traditional classroom. It is your opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of the assigned readings and your ability to supplement those readings with expanded exposure to related (and sometimes contrary) information that you will seek in your self-directed quest to understand and be informed. The following information provides guidelines to use when developing posts or replies.

Week 3 Discussion Topic:

1. What are the major differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes in relation to insulin?
