Professional Capstone and Practicum Details This is a writing-intensive course. The professional capstone practicum project offers students the opportunity to propose a resolution to an issue or problem significant to nursing practice within a clinical environment. Students identify, design, and propose an evidence-based solution within a health care organization with guidance from faculty and a preceptor in the field.
