Discussion 6600 Week 6

Discussion 6600 Week 6

In Week 1, you developed your practicum professional development objectives. How have your experiences thus far in the practicum contributed to your growth as nurse leader-manager or nurse informaticist? What difficulties, if any, have you experienced, and how might this affect the achievement of your objectives?
In this Discussion, you assess your progress toward fulfilling your practicum professional development objectives and consider how you could enhance or alter your activities to achieve your aims.
To prepare:

  • Reflect on the practicum professional development objectives you developed and outlined in your Practicum Professional Experience Plan in Week 1.
  • Keeping in mind the practicum activities you have engaged in thus far, consider the following questions:
    • How have these activities helped to promote your professional development?
    • Are you satisfied with your progress toward meeting your objectives? If not, what will you do to ensure you achieve them before the end of your Practicum Experience? As a reminder, you must complete all of your practicum hours on or before Day 5 of Week 11.
    • What challenges or unexpected opportunities have arisen at your practicum site? How has this affected your professional development?
  • Think about the experiences you may have in the forthcoming weeks. Do you foresee any particular challenges on the horizon? If so, what is your plan for addressing those challenges?
  • Think about the time you have spent with your Preceptor. How has this time enhanced or changed your understanding of the role and functions of the nurse leader-manager or nurse informaticist?

Post on or before Day 3 an assessment of your progress toward achieving your practicum professional development objectives, including how your involvement in specific practicum activities has contributed to your development. Explain what you will do to ensure you achieve your objectives by the end of your practicum. Summarize challenges or unexpected opportunities that have arisen, as well as any challenges that you anticipate may arise. Explain how you will address those challenges. Finally, summarize what you have learned about the role and functions related to your specialization through time spent with your Preceptor.

Section 2: Practicum Professional Development Objectives

Refer to the instructions in Week 1 to create practicum professional development objectives that meet the requirements for this course.
Objective 1: By the end of nursing 6600 I will effectively be able to effectively communicate my role as clinical coordinator to students and university staff as defined by evidence-based practice.
Objective 2: By the end of nursing 6600 I will have undergone the experience necessary to expand on my conflict resolution skills from a team member to the level of upper management in order to be a more effective leader.
Objective 3: By the end nursing 6600 I will have acquired the skills necessary to analyze and effectively evaluate systematically clinical sites and their efficacy in the college.

Section 3: Projected Timeline/Schedule

Estimate how many hours you expect to work on your practicum each week. Per the practicum guidelines, you may use half your hours for professional development and up to half for your Practicum Project (i.e., 72 hours to accomplish your practicum professional development objectives and 72 hours to complete your Practicum Project objectives, which you will establish later in this course).
This timeline is intended as a planning tool; your actual schedule may differ from the projections you are making now.
I intend to complete the 144 practicum hours according to the following timeline/schedule:

  Number of Hours Projected for Week Number of Weekly Hours for Professional Development Number of Weekly Hours for Practicum Project
Week 1 10 8 2
Week 2 12 4 8
