This week’s Journal entry will be added to your Week 3 and the previous course’s Journal entries.
This comprehensive Practicum Experience Journal demonstrates your ability to apply nursing and specialization theory to your practicum and practice experiences.
Drawing from evidence, concepts, and/or theories (evidence) learned in this program and your specialization, you will
analyze one problem, issue, or situation (event) you observe during your practicum experience. You will decide if the
observed event is consistent with or different from the evidence, how the event mirrors or differs from the evidence,
and how evidence might be used to enhance the similarity or diminish the difference, if appropriate. Sometimes, a
deviation from the evidence-based practice is necessary during different situations. If you do not work on-site with
your preceptor in the week your journal is due, you may reflect on experiences from a previous week of your practicum
for your journal entry.
For this assignment, you must use the template attached.
Your journal entry should be week-based and sequential so that all journal entries are contained in one file. The
journal entries must include the following:
•Describe the observed activity (no more than ½ page).
•Using an evidence-based approach, analyze the problem, issue, or situation.
•Include minimum of two scholarly sources, formatted according to APA requirements.
•Reveal how the real-world might mirror or diverge from program-related evidence, concepts, and/or theories.
