As a future advanced practice nurse, it is important that you are able to connect your classroom experience to your Practicum Experience. By applying the concepts that you study in the classroom to clinical settings, you enhance your professional competency. Each week, you complete an Assignment such as Journal Entries and SOAP Notes that prompts you to reflect on your Practicum Experiences and relate them to the material presented in the classroom. This week, you begin documenting your Practicum Experiences in your Practicum Journal.
To prepare for this course’s Practicum Experience, address the following in your Practicum Journal:
Select and describe a nursing theory to guide your practice.
Develop goals and objectives for your Practicum Experience in this course. When developing your goals and objectives, be sure to keep the seven domains of practice in mind.
Create a timeline of practicum activities based on your practicum requirements.
This Assignment is due by Day 7 of Week 3. You will submit this Week 1 Journal Entry along with the Week 2 Journal Entry, the Week 3 SOAP Note, and your Practicum Time Log on Day 7 of Week 3.
