The “Nursing Education Practicum Documentation (NEPD) Forms” provide weekly, competency-based documentation of clinical practicum activities and are utilized by learners to communicate practicum experiences to course faculty. Be sure to read the instructions on the forms for information on how to complete the assignment before you begin.
In your first NEPD form, complete the “Overall Practicum Goals (Week 1)” section of the “Nursing Education Practicum Documentation (NEPD) Goals Form” by writing the overall goals (S.M.A.R.T goals or objectives) for your practicum. You will re-address these goals in the second part of the form during Topic 16 to evaluate if they have been met.
When completing the “Nursing Education Practicum Documentation (NEPD) Goals Form,” use the S.M.A.R.T. goal format to write goals you have for your overall practicum experience. Consider what you want to accomplish during this practicum experience. Keep your goals broad enough to cover everything that you would like to accomplish during your practicum experience. You may choose to focus on a specific aspect of nursing education or may choose to sample a variety of nursing education experiences within your selected practicum experience.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
