I have used nursing diagnosis labels in a table and was wanting to know how I put an in-text reference in a table? Should i put next to the table label for example Table 1.1 the reference for example Table 1.1 Ackley & Ladwig, 2011?

The best way to do this is to talk about Table 1.1 in the text and then use an in-text reference with a page number. Suppose the table was on page 16. Then you might say something like: 'This theory is supported by results in Table 1.1 from Ackley & Ladwig (2011, p. 16)'. Or 'in Table 1.1, Ackley & Ladwig (2011, p. 16) show that ...'. Or 'using data from Table 1.1 (Ackley & Ladwig 2011, p. 16) we can see that ...'.
