NRS 490 Grand Canyon Week 10 Discussion 2
Discuss why EBP is an essential component of the practice of a BSN-prepared RN. Then name two waysin which you will continue to integrate evidence into your practice and encourage it within your work environment. What problems or impediments do you foresee in being able to follow your EBP action plan? What steps can you take to minimize these?NRS 490 Grand Canyon Week 2 AssignmentDetailsIn collaboration with your approved course mentor, you will choose a specific evidence-based practice proposal topic for the Capstone Project. Consider the clinical environment in which you are currently working or have recently worked. The Capstone Project topic can be a clinical practice problem, an organizational issue, a quality improvement suggestion, a leadership initiative, or an educational need appropriate to your area of interest as well as your practice immersion (practicum) setting. A combination of 100 “supervised clinical hours” in community health and leadership areas will be obtained through the application of the objectives listed in the “Guidelines for Undergraduate Field Experiences” manual and ascaptured in the ISP.Practicum immersion experiences are required in a community health setting. Community health and leadership practice immersion can occur in the same site and in conjunction with the evidence-based project in the NRS-490V course. Definitions of community-based settings should encourage community integration and involvement; expand accessibility of services and supports; promote personal preference, strengths, dignity; and empower people to participate in the economic mainstream. Examples of the integration of community health, leadership, and an EBP can be found at Healthy People 2020.The goals of the practice immersion experience is to apply the learning from your research, community health, and leadership courses:After studying this course, you should be able to:Demonstrate and apply knowledge of factors to consider when planning to work with a chosen community.Demonstrate and apply knowledge of approaches that will facilitate engagement of the community.Demonstrate and apply knowledge and skills required to work constructively with communities.Demonstrate and apply knowledge related to engagement of organizational leadership and change agents.
