In this research paper students were to investigate how their future professions might be affected or influenced by social media or some other form of technology. Leah Rachel chose to argue that, though various forms of social media can be beneficial to nurses struggling to cope with the stress of their jobs, the potential professional risks far outweigh the personal benefits. Note how Leah Rachel’s choice to open her essay with “the placenta incident” not only effectively captures the serious consequences suffered by many nurses who thoughtlessly upload work images to social media sites but also immediately orients readers to both sides of her argument. As you read the essay, locate sections of the argument which might be strengthened by additional examples or support.
