I started planning for my FNP practicum shortly after my enrolment in to this program. I spoke with Ms. July, Harvey, who is a FNP and a family friend regarding my practicum, and requested that she should be serving as my preceptor during my practicum. Ms. Harvey has been a FNP for more than six years and I have known her four years. She works in the Geriatric unit of a primary health care clinic in my community and has the great preceptor skills. I am still waiting for her response. I will develop a project on prevention of skin break in elderly patients in long-term facilities during my practicum experience. I will discuss in details multifactorial measures of preventing skin break in elderly. I am convinced that creating awareness on this menacing health problem will help to reduce the economic and medical expenses in long-term facilities and improve the quality of health of the elderly population in United States of America. Summary I am delighted for the opportunity granted me to enroll in this FNP program. I am convinced that my skills, experience, and academic background will serve as a driving force towards achieving my personal and academic goals in this program. Being a new online scholar, I am working toward improving my typing speed through various resources. I will also be on the lookout for more typing resources. I am confident that at the end my program at Walden University, the skills, and knowledge I will acquire would enhance my education and professional development, help become an outstanding practitioner that would be able to positively influence the lives of people in the society.
