Primary Care of Women
As a future advanced practice nurse, it is important that you are able to connect your classroom experience to your Practicum Experience. By applying the concepts you study in the classroom to clinical settings, you enhance your professional competency. Each week you complete an Assignment such as Journal Entries or SOAP Notes that prompts you to reflect on your Practicum Experiences and relate them to the material presented in the classroom. This week you begin documenting your Practicum Experiences in your Practicum Journal.
To prepare for this course’s Practicum Experience, address the following in your Practicum Journal: 1 TO 2 PAGES
Select and explain a nursing theory or feminist perspective to guide your clinical practice. SELECTED THEORY (Jean Watson Theory of Human Caring)
Develop goals and objectives for the Practicum Experience in this course. When developing your goals and objectives, be sure to keep women’s health guidelines and best practices in mind.
Create a timeline of practicum activities based on your practicum requirements
IMPORTANT INFORMATION; Your goal need to also be measurable, for example by the end of week 3 with the supervision of my preceptor will perform a complete physical examination including speculum examination and adequately document.
