Assignment: Practicum: Planning for the Practicum
The practicum experience provides a significant opportunity to cultivate your professional growth and development. What skills, attributes, or categories of knowledge do you most need or want to nurture? How would improving in these areas enable you to be a more effective leader? And how would that allow you to facilitate the translation of evidence into practice?
This course includes a 216-hour practicum as part of the 1,000 clinical hours that are required for the DNP credential. In your practicum experience for this course, you will examine the change process as it relates to the translation of evidence into practice. In addition, throughout your practicum experience you will pay close attention to the role of leadership in such endeavors and reflect on your own development of leadership competencies.
This week you develop a plan for your practicum.
Note: If you have not already done so, formalize the relationship with your practicum mentor.
Note: It is important to formulate a big-picture view of this process. In Weeks 2 and 3, you will work with your practicum mentor to examine a change already underway or previously accomplished, and identify an additional aggregate-level change you would like to propose. You are not required to implement this change, but you do need to select an idea that is feasible, based on evidence, and appropriate for your practicum setting.
By Wednesday 2/27/19 before midnight, write a 3-page essay in APA format with at least 5 scholarly references from the list of required readings below. Include the level one headers as numbered below.
Write a 3-page paper that includes the following:
1) An outline or visual representation indicating how you would guide planning for and implementing change related to the translation of evidence into practice for your practicum setting
2) Three learning objectives for your practicum hours that are aligned to the AACN Essentials, your specialty area competencies, and the focus of this course (i.e., systems-related issues, translation of evidence into practice, intentional change, and leadership) (refer to the attached AACN Essential IV [Nursing Informatics]).
3) Key leadership and other activities you will undertake to fulfill your identified learning objectives
4) A proposed time line for accomplishing your practicum hours (divide 216 hours in 10 weeks to come up with how many hours per weeks in order to makeup the required 216 hours for this semester).
By Wednesday 2/27/19 before midnight
