Plagiarism

The health care career paper is to be the student’s original work. Plagiarism is the improper

borrowing of another person’s words, ideas, or methods. If you use another person’s material, you

must acknowledge your source. When you cite a source properly, you have given credit where it

is due, and you have also given your readers a way to locate the original material on their own.

But, there is more than that to plagiarism. Copying material directly without placing it between

quotation marks, even if you provide the source, is an act of plagiarism.
