NURS6600 Capstone Synthesis Practicum
Week 7 Discussion
Practicum Project Progress Check
Consider the following scenario:
When Maria created her Practicum Project Plan, she thought she would have plenty of time to work on it after approval. However, she was not nearly as far along with her Practicum Project as she had expected, due to scheduling difficulties with her Preceptor over the past couple of weeks. She knew that she had limited time to finish her project, and she was starting to feel nervous. Was there some aspect of her plan that could be adjusted given these constraints? Alternatively, would she and her Preceptor be able to adjust her practicum hours in the next 2 week to give her the time she needed?

Is Maria’s experience similar to yours? In Week 5, you submitted your Practicum Project Plan. How has the implementation of your project progressed since you received approval of your plan? Have you been able to adhere to your timeline?
This optional Discussion allows you to assess the progress made on your Practicum Project. It is not required, and you will not receive a grade for your participation. However, you may find the interaction with colleagues beneficial, particularly if working through any challenges or roadblocks to project implementation.
To prepare for this Optional Discussion:
Reflect on the goal and objectives you identified in your Practicum Project Plan.
Evaluate your progress toward achieving your Practicum Project goal and objectives. Consider the following questions:
How have specific activities helped you to meet your Practicum Project goal and objectives?
If you are not satisfied with your progress toward meeting your goal and objectives, what will you do to ensure you accomplish them before the end of this practicum? How will you revise your project timeline?
What challenges or unexpected opportunities have arisen at your practicum site?
Consider what the next few weeks may entail in terms of your Practicum Project. Do you anticipate any challenges? If so, how will you mitigate or manage those challenges?
Conduct a literature search and locate two or more articles that relate to your Practicum Project. As you read these articles, consider how you can apply insights to your project.
By Day 3
(Optional) Post an assessment of your progress toward achieving your Practicum Project goal and objectives. Evaluate how your involvement in specific activities has contributed to your progress. Explain what you will do to make sure you accomplish your goal and objectives by the end of this practicum. Summarize obstacles or unexpected opportunities that have arisen, as well as any challenges that you anticipate may arise. Explain how you will mitigate or manage those challenges. Share insights from the literature that relate to your project.
