Our APA style guide has that information.

This is the basic format:

Author, A. (date). Title of document. Retrieved from http://URL

It's sometimes though, to figure out the basics - who is the author, what's the title of the page or document, and the date. That the case for the sc.deu web site.

Author: After examining the URL and working my way to the source of the document by cutting the last piece off of the URL, I would list the One Voice One Plan Future of Nursing Action Coalition as the author. We call it a corporate or group author.

Date: The publication date is at the bottom of the page, March 2014.

Title of document: South Carolina APRN Fact Sheet, taken from the top of the page. Only the first word of the title is capitalized, plus proper nouns (like South Carolina), and the acronym APRN.

A reference entry ending in a URL never has a period at the end.

It would look like this (but with a hanging indent, which I can't do here):

One Voice One Plan Future of Nursing Action Coalition. (2014). South Carolina APRN fact sheet. Retrieved from

For the AANP document:

Author: American Association of Nurse Practitioners

Date: From the bottom of the page, chose the most recent review and revise date, 2015.

Title of document: Scope of Practice for Nurse Practitioners, in the blue banner at the top of the page.

When you're citing something online other than a web site, like a blog pose or a tweet, you'll see the [format description] following the title of the document. That's not needed here.

Good question! Thanks for asking us.
