You have provided a valid goal statement and project objectives but not sure they re the objectives we discussed in week three. You have not provided a purpose statement. You have not provided at least two or more credible outside sources (peer reviewed journal articles) in addition to three or four scholarly course sources to support your major points. Your methodology does not clearly address each objective in terms of who, what, when, where and how. You have addressed formative and summative evaluation. The summative evaluation is your presentation to your organization. You’ve not provided a realistic timeline in the appendix with a corresponding paragraph explaining the timeline in the manuscript itself. Periodically, you may see yellow highlighting which is simply my way of noting an important piece for grading etc. It may or may not have a comment attached to the highlighted area. Please read all of my edits and comments. Your APA is way off Amanda. You need to pull out your Perrin or APA 6 Manual. Paragraphs indented. Level 1 headings are center justified. And other errors. Gramatically, some very long paragraphs. Please edit your paper to my comments for you’ll be submitting this in your Final Portfolio. Tx, Dr.H.
Academic institutions all around the way through the nation struggle on a day by day basis to ensure that they are preparing putting in order student nurses that are knowledgeable and competent to function as a nurse. One point of disagreement that academic institutions confront come across is where to position students for practical quantifiable and how and at what time will the area be permitted. The project seeks to investigate the challenges that students confrontstumble upon when they want to get hold of understanding from establishments from which they can acquire their offer on the very imperative work know-how and the technique that such a predicament can be addressed. Instances of students with the facilitation of their educational institutions to not be up to snuff to secure a position from where experience can be obtained in the field are omnipresent ((Bay Area Nursing Resource Center ,2006). Comment by Microsoft Office User: Practical quantifiable what? Amanda…you need to closely edit your manuscripts for word selection, flow of sentences and appropriate grammar. Comment by Microsoft Office User: What does this mean? Comment by Microsoft Office User: I really don’t know what this means Amanda… Comment by Microsoft Office User: Amanda: I’m not going to do anymore editing but you need to look at your editing screen. I would recommend you read your work out loud. I will work to discern the requirements for the proposal.
The dilemma is an establishment of abundant statistics of students who want developmental openings alongside restricted opportunities on foundations interrelated to their vocation. Preceding projects have been laid down with the outlook of addressing this predicament, and consequently, this development was to a certain extent construction on the evolutions that such organizations made to that consequence. What dictates this project nonetheless is the fact that prior projects have not fully taken over the subject, and this gives an explanation why the predicament prolongs to sink your teeth into to date This project aims at addressing the setback in the constituency of The Northeast portion Wisconsin by advancing more the technique used by the Bay Area Nursing Resource Centre to solve the problem to the degree to which it has to be resolved ((Palese A., 2013). Comment by Microsoft Office User: Is this your purpose statement?
To address the predicament of inadequate openings in Wisconsin for students through harmonizing the yield from the intellectual establishments with the opportunities that the healthcare in the region can produce at a time.
The project also targets the increased ease of availability of connection openings by medical scholars as well as humanizing the superiority of health care in the nation.
This venture seeks to deal with the problem by generating additional opportunities in the health establishment through stimulation of the administration of the organization to augmentation of the magnitude of their clinic so that the needed supplementary nurses to be embarked on by the students.
To launch a familiar pool of latent workforce by taking up with the school to provide a continuous contribution from which the companies can draw workforce.
To pave the way for the revision of the unchanging ordinary connection time by educational institutions to work all through the year so as to establish suitable workforce from which Health centers can draw workforce for extra staffing.
To enhance the Health standards in the country by spicing up the figures of the existing labor force through the amalgamation of more interns in the scheme that is currently understaffed
To get to the bottom of the problem by using software that shall aid to the quick recognition of the materialization of new chances for connection in the field
To utilize research so as to make more handy ways through which the problem can be taken care of in better ways in the future (Katsikitis M., 2013).
To exploit raw facts obtained from the monitoring and evaluation sections during the implementation of the plan to set right for that reason based on the information at hand. Comment by Microsoft Office User: Amanda: you have six objectives here. Is this from our week three discussion? I would not usually let that many be written and I see non Bloom’s verbs. Gramatically, this is VERY informal and colloquial (ie: more handy, spicing up figures etc). This has no place in formal professional writing.
EVIDENCE-BASED REVIEW OF LITERATURE FOR PROJECT JUSTIFICATION
There was an expected shortage of one million nurses in the United States of America by the year 2010; this is about According to the anticipations of the Bureau of Labor Statistics of 2005. This not so good trend can be saved by the involvement of this scheme which calls for the support from all centers together with the government as the right of the state is fastened on this project (Katsikitis M., 2013). Comment by Microsoft Office User: This literature review is far too brief Amanda. The rubric calls for two to three credible outside sources in addition to three to four course resources. This section and the methodology should be the two longest sections of your manuscript.
The line of attack to be implemented in the project includes the use of computer software in assigning attachment chances to students available by first available first allocated as a result last on hand, last due.
Open questionnaires will also be used so as to get criticism and responses that can be incorporated in the observation and assessment reports to install the advantageous transformation during the execution of the project.
Use of surveys too will be agreed to determine the degree to which the project is solving the problem meant to attend. It is crucial to ascertain that it remains relevant to alter the situations that made the plan a primary concern might leave the project uncalled for in the future. Comment by Microsoft Office User: Amanda: I’m very concerned you really read my week three announcement and participated in the week three and four discussion threads. You are asked to address the who, what, when, where and how for EACH objective. How do you do that here?
Augmented medical allotment by the government so as to facilitate the expansion of the medical amenities in the area so as to permit the dissemination of additional employees in the appearance of scholars who are on field attachment is essential for the project.
Computer software through which the available students on attachment can be linked up with chances of attachment available in the medical establishments in the area for adequate activity coordination is a requirement.
Time is essential for the recruitment of the scholarly institutions in the nation to construct an unremitting period that will provide a channel for running the Practicum project.
At the end of each implementation stage, the formative assessment of this plan will be carried out. This is to ensure that the practicum scheme is made in line with the project that s set out. It will include funds which upon a not so bright administration may lead to the collapse of the project (Bay Area Nursing Resource Center, 2006).
Summative assessment will take one year after the conclusion of the scheme so as to quantify if the expected outcome of the project was realized. Decrease in the number of students incapable to get opportunities of internship in the area is one of the indicators of success among others
The implementation of the project is expected to take a duration of two years. Additional time from the class schedule will be allocated so as to ensure the actualization of the project as its broad scope calls for lengthy periods for actualization.
