Practicum Journal 1
Journaling provides a valuable tool for recording, reflecting on, and reviewing your learning. This Practicum Journal 1 approach allows you to “connect the dots” and observe the relationships between activities, interactions, and outcomes.
Unlike a personal journal of thoughts and feelings, this practicum journal records your activities, assessments, and learning related to this academic experience.
Journal entries should include a record of the hours spent with your nurse leader each week.
Write a reflective journal entry of 750-1,400 words answering the following:
- Practicum Activities Reflection: Provide observations and thoughts on the activities in your practicum setting during Weeks 1-2. (Practicum Setting is Home Care Settings)
- Health Care Quality & Patient Safety: What are the different elements of the strategic planning process? How can this process benefit both healthcare organizations and your practicum project?
- Practicum Project Preparation: Summarize your practicum project. What short- and long-term goals have you set for this project? Explain your rationale. (Project: Challenges Facing by Nurses in Home Health Care Setting during provision of Care)
- Evidence: Find a current article related to something you have done in your practicum during the past two weeks. Relate the article to your experience.
