NURSING LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT FIELD EXPERIENCE
For this assessment, you will design and develop a project prospectus in which you propose an evidenced-based practice change, quality improvement, or innovation that demonstrates the synthesis of WGU graduate competencies. This project is not primary research, but should focus on scholarly evidence in support of practice improvements, innovation, or general practice change. It will not require an institutional review board (IRB) approval. You will be required to conduct a comprehensive literature review that defines the evidence in support of your project. The literature review represents a collection of primary research studies that have already been conducted and that provide guidance for best practices. Once your prospectus is complete, you will create a professional presentation that outlines your project prospectus, and then present it to your stakeholder group and preceptor. Upon successful completion of this assessment, you will progress to Task 2 of the Field Experience.
Before you start your proposal, you will first need to secure organizational approval for your capstone project and obtain a letter of agreement from your preceptor. In Task 1, you will be required to develop a capstone proposal that describes your problem and proposed solution. You will not be permitted to begin the implementation of your project until the project has been approved by WGU.
