Develop a policy for admission criteria for other units in the hospital (Emergency Department) in the hospital to refer to for suitable admission the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).  This policy will encompass admission guidelines, defining who would make admission decisions.

 

Part 1: Professional Development and Reflection

  • Describe your professional aspirations and explain how you intend to use the practicum experience to promote career change and/or enhance your professional development.
  • Describe at least one objective to facilitate your professional growth, and explain the steps you could take to achieve the objective(s) during your practicum experience.
  • Explain how you plan on assessing your progress toward reaching this professional objective.
  • Describe how you will make reflection part of your Practicum Experience.

Part 2: Connections to Your Site

  • Document specific objective(s) for the specific time frame.
  • Describe a problem, issue, or situation that you have observed during your practicum experience (no more than a half page).
  • Using no fewer than three peer-reviewed sources of evidence, analyze what you have observed within the context of your specialty using appropriate concepts, principles, and theories. Give special attention to observed events that vary from scholarly literature.
  • Explain the degree to which the problem, situation, or issue was addressed in a manner that is consistent with the theory, concepts, and principles detailed in the evidence.
  • Given the various evidence-based approaches that can be used in addressing the problem, situation, or issue, formulate a plan for approaching the matter differently.
  • Explain how this problem, issue, or situation relates to, or helps you work toward, your professional aspirations and/or how it helps you enhance your performance.
  • Include APA-formatted references immediately following the content.

    SY001 Practicum Experience Journal

    Journal entries are due by Days 21, 49, and 68.

    Begin each journal entry on a new page. This template has a “new page” command inserted before each weekly label. Be sure to delete any blank pages that appear between the weekly entries. Note: This document will serve as a cumulative journal. For each submission, you will add to the document so it contains all of your journal entries. Submit the journal in the template provided. This allows your Faculty SME to view progress made across the duration of the practicum.

    Guidelines for Journal Entries

    · Numerically list practicum objectives for each entry from those listed on page 1. Objectives can change based on opportunities that may present themselves in the practicum setting.

    · For each entry, follow the instructions to reflect on professional development and analyze problems, situations, or issues you have observed at your practicum site.

    · Place the references for each week’s entry immediately after that week’s content. Remember to use APA style when writing your journal entries and listing references.

    Guidelines for the Time Log

    · Consistently document practicum hours in the Meditrek® system. It is recommended that you document hours after each day in the practicum setting. If you are having issues with the Meditrek® system, please contact the School of Nursing Field Experience Office at [email protected]
