Use this form to develop your Individual Success Plan (ISP) for each course. An individual
success plan maps out what you, the DNP Learner, needs to accomplish in order to be successful
in your current course and overall program of study. You will also share this with your mentor at
the beginning and end of each course so that they know what you need to accomplish.
Application based learning assignments are listed in the course syllabus with a
requirement. This statement also serves as a reminder for you to complete a weekly
corresponding Case Log in Typhon. Any independent study assignments in this course requires
your collaboration with the course faculty and practice mentor early on to establish a plan for
successful completion of mutually identified and agreed upon deliverables (proof of completion)
and must relate to your current course objectives. Independent study assignments must be
submitted to your instructor via the Individual Forum if no drop box is available.
In order for you to successfully complete and graduate from the DNP Program you must meet
the following programmatic requirements: (1) completion of required practice immersion hours,
(2) completion of work associated with all DNP and GCU program competencies, (3) successful
defense and completion of your Direct Practice Improvement Project.
In this ISP, you will identify all of the objectives, tasks, and/or assignments relating to the
programmatic requirements you need to complete by the end of this course (minimum 50
practice immersion hours are built into the curriculum for each course). Specify the dates by
which you will complete each tasks and/or assignments. Your plan should include a self-
assessment of how you met all applicable GCU DNP Domains & Competencies (see Appendix
A). This information will be required as you enter your weekly Case Log.
