MN Practicum 1


CRN: 85364
Instructor(s): Moralejo, Donna


Description
(3 credit hours) In the first practicum course, students propose a practicum project that will provide them with the opportunity for integration and synthesis of philosophical perspectives, theories, research and skills that have been acquired in the previous course work. The project also provides students with the opportunity for application of skills and material learned in previous course work and for development of further knowledge in a selected area of interest, as well as for demonstration of advanced nursing practice competencies. Practicum projects will vary from student to student and are negotiated with the course professor. In the first practicum course, students develop a written proposal for the project and conduct a comprehensive review of the literature. Depending on their project, they may consult with colleagues or assess available resources if they are developing educational materials or policies. If their project involves implementation of existing educational materials or policies, they may develop an implementation or evaluation plan. An interim practicum report is expected at the end of the first practicum course which includes an outline of activities for the second course and a reflection of progress to date in terms of advanced nursing practice competencies. Students are expected to revise all documents (e.g., proposal, literature review, reports) during the term based on feedback. Activities cannot be carried out until plans are approved by the course professor. (prerequisite: All required courses including N6020 or N6031)
