Create a caring environment for achieving quality health outcomes
The purpose of this assignment is to create a visual map that connects the work of the course (assignments, readings, discussion board, internet reviews , etc.) to all of the objectives specified below.
Take some time now to mindfully reflect over the assignments, readings, discussion board, and web site exploration activities of the course, Population Health, Epidemiology, and Statistical Principles. Next, take a look at the written directions for the assignment and the rubric for the assignment. You will be constructing a Concept M ap that relates (connects) the activities of the course to all of the outcome objectives provided for you in the Requirements section below.
Activity Learning Outcomes
Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
Synthesize knowledge of population health to the role of political advocacy as an Advanced Practice Nurse.
Total Points Possible: 50 Points
Students are expected to submit assignments by the time they are due. Assignments submitted after the due date and time will receive a deduction of 10% of the total points possible for that assignment for each day the assignment is late. Assignments will be accepted, with penalty as described, up to a maximum of three days late, after which point a zero will be recorded for the assignment. Quizzes and discussions are not considered assignments and are not part of the late assignment policy.
The Concept Map must visually connect all of the specified objectives (Program Outcomes, MSN Essentials, and NONPF Competencies) to course work (such as specific discussion board topics, written assignments, exams, lessons, and reading content).
All items should be labeled, for instance, label the objectives and label the course work you select with name of the assignment/reading/discussion board topic and which week it was introduced.
Use Microsoft Word or a PowerPoint to create a Concept Map. You can use the features found on the “Insert” tab of a Word doc (in the horizontal ribbon on the top of a Word doc page). For instance, if you click on “insert” you will see shapes and SmartArt. You can use a PowerPoint slide with shapes and lines to create a concept/mind map. This is not a PowerPoint presentation , but a PowerPoint slide can be used to “draw” the Map.
Outcomes/Competencies to be connected with course learning:
MSN Program Outcome #2:
Create a caring environment for achieving quality health outcomes (Care-Focused).
MSN Essential VIII:
Clinical Prevention and Population Health for Improving Health
National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Competencies #4: Practice Inquiry Competencies
Recognizes that the master’s-prepared nurse applies and integrates broad, organizational, client-centered, and culturally appropriate concepts in the planning, delivery, management, and evaluation of evidence-based clinical prevention and population care and services to individuals, families, and aggregates/identified populations.
Your Concept Map will visually depict how you see the assignments of the course meeting the outcomes above.
