Clinical Skills and Procedures

  • Review your FNP or AGPCNP Clinical Skills and Procedures Self-Assessment Form you submitted for your Week 1 Assignment 2 and think about areas for which you would like to gain application-level experience and/or continued growth as a nurse educator. How can your experiences in the practicum help you achieve these aims?  This is your opportunity to refine and finalize your goals and objectives for your practicum experience.
  • Review the information related to developing objectives provided in this week’s Learning Resources.  Your practicum learning objectives that you want to achieve during your practicum experience must be: 
    • Specific
    • Measurable
    • Attainable
    • Results focused
    • Time bound
    • Reflective of the higher order domains of Bloom’s taxonomy (i.e., Application level and above)

Note: Please make sure your objectives are outlined in your Professional Experience Plan (PEP).

  • Discuss your professional aims and your proposed practicum objectives with your Practicum Preceptor to ascertain if the necessary resources are available at your practicum site.
