The Individual Success Plan (ISP) assignment is an essential component of successful completion of a course and an overall program of study. It requires collaboration with the course faculty and mentor at an early stage. The purpose of the ISP is to establish a plan for successful completion of deliverables associated with weekly course objectives, required practice immersion hours, and the capstone project.
To develop the ISP, students are encouraged to access the “Individual Success Plan” resource in the Topic Materials. This resource provides important information, including student expectations and instructions for completing the ISP document. By utilizing the “Individual Success Plan,” students can create a personal plan that outlines how they will complete their practice hours and meet the objectives of each topic. It is important to include the number of hours set aside to meet these goals.
In the context of this course, students are required to obtain a combination of 100 supervised clinical hours in community health and leadership areas. These hours should be completed by applying the objectives listed in the manual. Practicum immersion experiences are necessary in a community health setting that encourages community integration, expands accessibility of services and supports, promotes personal preference, strengths, dignity, and empowers individuals to participate in the economic mainstream.
According to HealthyPeople.gov, educational and community-based programs and strategies aim to reach people outside of traditional health care settings. These settings include community health and leadership practice immersion, which can occur in the same site and in conjunction with the evidence-based project in the NRS-490 course. In Washington, registered nurses must complete a minimum of 50 hours in a community health setting as part of their practicum experience.
To enhance their practice, students should critically examine and improve their current practice by applying concepts from prior courses. They should also integrate scholarly readings to develop case reports that demonstrate increasingly complex and proficient practice.
Throughout the course, students may face various challenges in meeting the practice hour and competency requirements. It is important to consider these challenges and develop strategies to overcome them. Students can renegotiate their deliverables with their faculty and mentor and update their ISP accordingly. The ISP should be signed by the course mentor at the beginning and upon completion of each assignment that incorporates practice immersion hours. All practice immersion hours should be tracked in the ISP.
While APA format is not required for the ISP, students are expected to demonstrate solid academic writing skills. It is not necessary to submit this assignment to Turnitin.
In conclusion, the ISP assignment is a crucial element of successful course completion. It requires collaboration with the course faculty and mentor to establish a plan for completing deliverables associated with course objectives, practice immersion hours, and the capstone project. By utilizing the “Individual Success Plan” resource, students can develop a personal plan that outlines their goals and strategies for meeting them. Throughout the course, challenges may arise, but with proper communication and adaptation of the ISP, students can successfully overcome these challenges and achieve their objectives.
