A nursing dissertation needs to be completed in a particular style, format and structure and universities usually provide a handbook or guidance framework which students can use to compose the report but they usually fail to understand what is actually required. Even though universities provide outlines and instructions for completing the report along with a detailed explanation of the various chapters to be included in the report, people fail to understand how to effectively compose the whole report so it will receive a distinction. The thesis report for nursing should be written, composed, edited and formatted in the same way as any other thesis but it is important to remember that it is not like an essay or assignment that you may have completed in the past for a specific course. The objective of the report is to portray what was done and accomplished in the research. The report should be written in the past tense and in third person to depict what has already happened. The appropriate referencing system as specified by the university should be used and the five essential chapters including introduction, review of literature, methodology, results and findings and conclusion have to be necessarily written apart from any additional chapters that the university may require.
