APA Style does not have specific rules for creating outlines. Your instructor is probably referring to setting up your document in APA Style, which would include things like: one inch margins, headers, page numbers, etc. If you believe that's the case, you can check out our APA Citation Guide below.
You can find general instructions on how to set up an outline in the handy outline guide from the Purdue OWL, linked below.
Finally, remember to clarify with your instructor about his or her expectations. You can read more about that at the APA Style blog, also linked below.
