This part of the APA format guide presents information on how to organize your text in an assignment.

Assignments in nursing often have multiple questions and/or tasks, which can be neatly organized in paragraphs and under headings.

You can review the APA expectations for text, headings, and paragraphs using the links on the left side of this page.
