NURS 6500 - Capstone Synthesis: Practicum I


(3 sem. cr.) Students in the practicum are provided with the opportunity to engage in a supervised experience that integrates theory and research with practice. With guidance and support from their preceptor and instructor, students apply theory to better understand a specialization role in the context of an organization, formulate and achieve individualized learning objectives, and initiate a project conceptualized in collaboration with their preceptor in agreement with the instructor. The practicum (NURS 6500 and NURS 6510) requires a minimum of 125 total hours, which students record in their time log. Students also complete a cumulative journal in which they provide evidence-based or theory-based analyses of activities, issues, or problems that occur during their experience.
