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
Week 3 12 6 6
