JOURNAL ENTRY 1

Submit a journal entry (along with your time log). The journal entry is your opportunity to be self-reflective and needs to connect your previous professional experience with your practice, competencies/concepts in the program, and the literature. See the Practicum Guidelines located in the 
Practicum area, and this week’s Learning Resources, for a complete description of the practicum.

 

Journal Entries for DNP Practicum Courses

Students must periodically submit a journal entry (three times during each practicum course) discussing how they are achieving the objectives of the practicum experience. These objectives include the overall Course Objectives, as well as student individualized Learning Objectives for the practicum and any Project Objectives developed by the students.

The purpose of this journal is to identify activities, issues, or problems that show how students are increasing their knowledge in their nursing practice specialization. Drawing from theoretical constructs learned in coursework, as well as content related to their specialization, practicum Learning Objectives, and competencies, students should analyze their practicum experience with an eye toward connecting their experiences with relevant literature and any relevant concepts, models, or theories.

Students reflect on their practicum experiences in a 1-page journal entry (250–300 words) unless directed otherwise; see Week 1 of your Canvas practicum Course for more details. Entries should include APA-style citations and references, where appropriate. Students will continue adding to their journal to create a cumulative log of the practicum experience. This comprehensive journal will be submitted for each Journal Submission Assignment. Students should review feedback and correct any errors identified so as not to include the same mistakes on subsequent submissions.
