The capstone project is a large-scale project where students choose a topic that relates to nursing, where they are working, or where they would like to work. The results of the project will be presented in the last semester of the BSN program in the last capstone course.
BSN 355 is where you will choose a project topic and write a proposal. There are several components used in the course that you will be expected to fill out and combine as part of your capstone. Remember this is just the start of your project. You will need to work on your capstone project in the second and third semester in order to be successful.
Directions:
Using the information already compiled in previous assignments, create a proposal of at least 8 pages (not including the Title page and Reference page) which includes:
A Title Page including a Title for your Project
A Literature Review supporting the Need for the Project
At least 5 or more peer reviewed articles supporting the proposal
Objectives and strategies for achievement of the Capstone project
Background for the proposal including supportive resources indicated throughout the course e.g. budgeting, outcomes, evaluations.
Formatting using APA style. APA 7th edition format of the American Psychological Association
(APA) is the official style used by the College. This style and format used to cite sources can be referenced from http://www.apastyle.org
I have provided the “Capstone Final Template” to be used in this writing and some separate projects leading up to this final paper. These professors are big on using the PICOT process:
P (Patient, population or problem) Who or what is the patient, population or problem in question?
I (Intervention) What is the intervention (action or treatment) being considered?
C (Comparison or control) What other interventions should be considered?
O (Outcome or objective) What is the desired or expected outcome or objective?
T (Time frame) How long will it take to reach the desired outcome? (see Capstone project workplan, attached)
They are also big on using SMART goals criteria in the writing:
S = Specific
Be as clear and specific as possible with what you want to achieve. The more narrow your goal, the more you’ll understand the steps necessary to achieve it.
Example: “I want to earn a position managing a development team for a startup tech company.”
M = Measurable
What evidence will prove you’re making progress toward your goal? For example, if your goal is to earn a position managing a development team for a startup tech company, you might measure progress by the number of management positions you’ve applied for and the number of interviews you’ve completed. Setting milestones along the way will give you the opportunity to re-evaluate and course-correct as needed. When you achieve your milestones, remember to reward yourself in small but meaningful ways.
Example: “I will apply to three open positions for the manager of a development team at a tech startup.”
A = Achievable
Have you set an achievable goal? Setting goals you can reasonably accomplish within a certain timeframe will help keep you motivated and focused. Using the above example of earning a job managing a development team, you should know the credentials, experience and skills necessary to earn a leadership position. Before you begin working toward a goal, decide whether it’s something you can achieve now or whether there are additional preliminary steps you should take to become better prepared.
Example: “I will update my resume with relevant qualifications, so I can apply to three open positions for the manager of a development team at a tech startup.”
R = Relevant
When setting goals for yourself, consider whether or not they are relevant. Each of your goals should align with your values and larger, long-term goals. If a goal doesn’t contribute toward your broader objectives, you might rethink it. Ask yourself why the goal is important to you, how achieving it will help you and how it will contribute toward your long-term goals.
Example: “To achieve my goal of being in leadership, I will update my resume with relevant qualifications so I can apply to three open positions for the manager of a development team at a tech startup.”
T = Time-based
What is your goal time-frame? An end-date can help provide motivation and help you prioritize. For example, if your goal is to earn a promotion to a more senior position, you might give yourself six months. If you haven’t achieved your goal in that timeframe, take time to consider why. Your timeframe might have been unrealistic, you might have run into unexpected roadblocks or your goal might have been unachievable.
Example: “To achieve my goal of being in leadership, I will update my resume with relevant qualifications so I can apply to three open positions for the manager of a development team at a tech startup this week.”
