Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:

1. Utilize basic program planning skills (risk analysis, timeline development, stakeholder communication and responsibility assignment) in planning the evidence-based project.

2. Identify possible tools for measurement of project objectives/outcomes

3. Synthesize data found to support a practice change, quality improvement and/or policy change

4. Compare and contrast evidence-based practice models and utilize a model within the scope of the EBP project

5. Develop an evaluation plan for the EBP project.  

This course is designed to assist the student in the development of an evidence-based project. This course continues the development of project planning skills gained in NURS 6843. The course focuses on developing a timeline for the project, identifying and communicating with stakeholders, selecting appropriate measures/tools for objectives, and analysis of risk. 


Students are accountable for policies regarding graduate nursing programs and completion of requirements for all graduate students as stated in the Graduate Catalog and Graduate Student Handbook. Students are responsible for making appointments with faculty concerning class assignments as necessary. This is an online class and students are expected to access the course via Desire2Learn on a regular basis for updates and information. All course requirements must be met in order to pass the course.

Timely submission of all assignments is required. In the event a student needs an extension due to compelling circumstances, communicate with faculty in advance of the due date. Late assignments will ONLY be accepted in compelling circumstances; it is important to note the need to negotiate any late submission dates in advance - except in an emergent circumstances and proof will need to be submitted. A graduate student must request any extensions prior to the assignment due date.

 

NO extensions will be given for the Peer Critique. This is an assignment between partners. If one is late, it gives the partner less time to complete their part of the assignment. 

Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
