Week 3 Project

In a Microsoft Word document of 2-3 pages formatted in APA style, you will describe the final plan for your capstone project using the format below. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.

Introduction

The introduction establishes the scope, context, and significance of the project being conducted by summarizing current understanding and background information (literature) about the topic, stating the purpose of the work, explaining briefly the approach used to examine the problem, and identifies one or two outcomes of the project.

Problem Statement

A problem statement is the description of a currently existing issue, which needs to be addressed with evidence-based interventions. The statement of the problem is the focal point of the project. Be sure to back up the noted issue/problem with evidence. Must include citations of evidence.

Questions

Identify one to two questions to address with your capstone project. Based on the constraint of project length of 10 weeks you may not have time to address a multitude of questions.

Methodology

The methodology section of the paper addresses:

  • when and how you will collect the pre-intervention data,
  • what the intervention(s) is (are),
  • when/how the intervention(s) will be implemented,
  • how and when you will perform your post-intervention data measurement,
  • how the data will be analyzed.

A friendly reminder that unless your project has gone through the IRB process you will not be allowed to collect data on more than 3 people. For data collection, you will choose 3 people from your aggregate.

Timetable

Develop a timetable considering the following questions:

  • When will your project start and finish?
  • Are there particular steps or stages to the project?
  • What objectives have you set for this investigation? Are they addressed in the timeline?
  • Is the timetable realistic?
  • How will you provide regular updates and progress reports and to whom will you provide them? How will you demonstrate progress?

    Bi-weekly Practicum Journaling

    Every two weeks, you will submit a reflective journal to the discussion forum for review by course faculty and your classmates. All are expected to engage and support one another by sharing these experiences in a supportive, constructive, professional environment. Journaling is an active learning technique that is meant to enhance reflective practice (Blake, 2005). Reflective practice involves looking back over what has happened in the practice setting in an effort to improve performance or to encourage professional growth (Ruth-Sahd, 2003).

    Your Weekly Practicum Journal is:

    A personal, introspective subjective account of your practicum experience and how your practicum experience relates to Healthy People 2020 and course objectives. Include events that occurred in your practicum experience, and be sure to describe your thoughts and feelings about those events. How did your perceptions change? What did you learn that was unexpected? Describe your thinking about your thoughts and feelings regarding the new learning you experienced.

    Connected to South University’s College of Nursing Conceptual Framework Pillars (Caring, Communication, Critical Thinking, Professionalism, and Holism)

    Connected to prior coursework and experiences through reflective analysis.

    Written in a scholarly, academic style using APA style format. Two or three sentences are not sufficient nor are daily logs/reports of activities.

    As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format. Support your work, using your course lectures and textbook readings. Helpful APA guides and resources are available in the South University Online Library. Below are guides that are located in the library and can be accessed and downloaded via the South University Online Citation Resources: APA Style page.
