In this assignment, students will pull together the change proposal project components they have been working on throughout the course to create a proposal inclusive of sections for each content focus area in the course. At the conclusion of this project, the student will be able to apply evidence-based research steps and processes required as the foundation to address a clinically oriented problem or issue in future practice.
Students will develop a 1,500-1,750 word paper that includes the following information as it applies to the problem(Childhood Obesity), issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need profiled in the capstone change proposal:
Purpose of the change proposal
Literature search strategy employed
Evaluation of the literature
Applicable change or nursing theory utilized
Proposed implementation plan with outcome measures
Identification of potential barriers to plan implementation, and a discussion of how these could be overcome
Appendix section, if tables, graphs, surveys, educational materials, etc. are created
Review the feedback from your instructor on the Topic 3 assignment, PICOT Statement Paper, and Topic 6 assignment, Literature Review. Use the feedback to make appropriate revisions to the portfolio components before submitting.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

The United States Department of Labor identifies the current trends of employment that affect the nursing world. “Registered Nurses (RN) at this time represent the largest occupation in health care, with 2.5 million jobs” (Vallano, 2008, p.169). Vallano (2008) proceeds to summarize the employment trends in nursing by giving percentages of the present nursing rate in the hospital setting and the employment rate for the future of nursing. The percentage of nurses in the hospital setting is standing at 59 percent and the employment rate for nursing is expected to reach 23 percent from the year 2006 to the future year of 2016, this rate is said to be faster than the average for all occupations (Vallano, 2008, p.169).
With the positive statistics mentioned above, how is it that a steady rise of employment for nurses can last for decades and then suddenly decline for years? Researchers have discovered some of the factors that are found to be the cause for the trends of employment in nursing. These include: nursing shortages, wages, and location of employment, gender, marital status and d…
Instructions Part 3
In Assignment Three, you will analyze and integrate findings of the two previous assignments. These are the Windshield Survey, including the informant interviews, and the Community Health Statistical Analysis. From these sources of information, you will establish a community health nursing care plan.
The steps you will follow in this assignment are comparable to the development of a Nursing Care Plan. The main difference is that the point-of-impact is a community, an aggregate of people, versus an individual. For this assignment you will analyze and integrate the findings of your windshield survey, information from key informants, and your community health statistical analysis. This analysis and integration will help you establish a community health nursing plan of care.
This assignment requires that you take the following steps:
If you do NOT use this template there will be a 10- point grade penalty, and you will be required to resubmit with 48 hours or a zero will be given.
1. Introduction: You will state the PURPOSE of your paper. You will also provide a brief synopsis of your community and present two Community Health Nursing (CHN) from your observations and the statistical data from the previous two assignments. You will include key supporting evidence for the two CHN diagnoses.
2. Select ONE Diagnosis/problem based on the two (2) community health nursing (CHN )Diagnoses you developed in Week 2 OR a newly developed CHN diagnosis based on Coach feedback from your two (2) CHN diagnoses in Assignment 2.
Discuss the rationale for selecting this problem/Diagnosis.
Provide supporting community and scientific evidence, for example, Healthy People 2020, Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Heart Association (AHA), and others for this diagnosis.
3. Develop a plan of nursing intervention. Explain the intervention time line. Remember to be realistic when setting the goals and the time line for the various intervention activities to take place.
Describe the Goals (minimum of 2) and objective (2-3 PER goal) of the CHN nursing intervention. Remember, goals are where you want to go. Objectives are how you plan to accomplish the goals. Goals and objectives need to be realistic.
Explain the intervention objective time line. This time line needs to be realistic.
Include your plan of intervention activities and evaluation measures. The evaluation should measure the outcomes of your intervention. Be specific.
4. Summary and conclusions: Summarize your assessment findings, your proposed community health nursing intervention, and the community public health outcomes that you anticipate as a result of the intervention. This can be one or two brief paragraphs
5. References: Follow APA guidelines
