Class, I urge you to go to the Announcement titled “Important: Assigned Article for Week 4 & 6 Assignment and  download the article “Gratitude journals can improve nurses’ mental well-being ”  to your computer. The same article is used for the Week 6 Assignment.  Due to licensing rules, the library only allows a few people at a time to access the article so please download the article and sign out of the library so other students may access the article.
