Practicum 1


CRN: 85364
Instructor(s): Burry, Robin D; Parsons, Karen A; Younas, Ahtisham


Description
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 practicum 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. Pre-requisites: all required courses

For example, students will develop educational materials or policies based on their literature review and consultations with colleagues, or they will evaluate existing educational materials or policies based on their implementation and evaluation plan. They will share what they have done and accomplished in presentations to their colleagues, and they will write a final practicum report that includes all materials generated during the two courses, e.g., literature review, reports of consultations or evaluation, developed educational materials or policies, or evaluation report. The final report includes a summary of advanced nursing practice competencies demonstrated by the student, illustrated with examples. Pre-requisite: 6660 Practicum 1
