Practicum Project Plan

Practicum Project Plan Practicum Project Plan As a foundation for engaging in scholarly writing, the nurse leader-manager or nurse informaticist must be able to engage in critical thinking and anticipate the needs, questions, and concerns of the intended audience. A scholarly writer must be able to craft a paper that demonstrates clarity, specificity, fairness, relevance, and consistency (Dexter, 2000). As you reflect on the development of your Practicum Project Plan, take some time to consider how you will communicate your proposal objectively yet persuasively. To prepare: Review the information in the Practicum Project Plan (PPP) Overview document introduced in Week 3. The overview describes the components that must be included in your plan. Reflect on the development of your Practicum Project Plan thus far. Address any questions you have and/or identify areas in need of further consideration or improvement.Develop any outstanding components of your Practicum Project Plan. For instance, you may need to continue your review of literature that justifies your project and create your project timeline. Review the information on scholarly writing in this week’s Learning Resources; be sure to integrate these principles as you develop your Practicum Project Plan. If you posted a draft of Practicum Project Plan in this week’s optional Discussion, incorporate, as appropriate, feedback you received from your colleagues. To complete the Practicum Project Plan: Write a 5- to 6-page scholarly paper, referred to as your Practicum Project Plan (PPP), in which you will formulate findings, conclusions, and recommendations in relation to the problem or issue you are examining. Your paper will include the following: 1) Title: The title should include the name of your project and should follow the Uniform Guidelines format. 2) Introduction: The introduction includes the purpose of the paper, the goal of the project, and the name of the project. It also outlines the structure of the paper. 3) Goal statement: A goal statement identifies what you expect to accomplish, the focus area, and the population. It introduces the project and conveys, in broad terms, how you plan to solve a particular problem or issue.4) Project objectives: Project objectives delineate your strategy for reaching the goal and the steps you will follow to complete the project. You must include three measurable objectives that use Application-level or higher verbs from Bloom’s Taxonomy. 5) Evidence-based review of the literature for project justification: (Literature Review). This review provides evidence-based support for your identified problem, project methods, and evaluation (presented in Week 4). The literature should be directed toward justifying the project, not focus on potential solutions. You must include a review of your specialization’s professional-practice standards and guidelines related to your project and a minimum of five (5) scholarly references for this section of the paper. (SEE ATTACHED PDF) 6) Methodology: This section addresses in detail how you will accomplish the project objectives. Include, as relevant, the who, when, where, and how of each objective. 7) Resources: Identify and justify the human, physical, and/or technical resources you will need to complete this project. Note that for this assignment, you do not have to address the financial aspects of your plan. 8) Formative evaluation: Describe how and when you will conduct formative evaluation of your project. Explain how you will use the evaluation results and how you will determine if the project is proceeding as planned. 9) Summative evaluation: Describe how and when you will conduct summative evaluation of your project. Explain how you will use the evaluation results.10) Timeline: Create a graphic timeline representing significant stages of your project. Provide a narrative to help your Instructor understand the timeline. Include the timeline in an Appendix to your Practicum Project Plan. Note: You must use APA-style headings, but you are not required to title the headings as listed above. The Practicum Project Plan is due by Friday 03/31/2017 REQUIRED READINGS Cipriano, P.
