Complete the core courses of the post licensure nursing program
In just a few short weeks, each of you will complete the core courses of the post licensure nursing program. Do you remember those early days of online learning when one discussion posting was overwhelming and the thought of an APA formatted paper was terrifying? What a journey it has been! In this assignment, you will have a time of reflection. Reflection allows you to clarify what you have learned and apply this knowledge to present and future circumstances. In your journal writing, you will reflect upon your work over the past months, recognize what you have accomplished, and identify how you met the program outcomes.
The Post-licensure Exit Survey (below) was included as a resource for you to use as you prepare for the 6.4 Reflection Journal Assignment where you are to reflect on your work over the past months, recognize what you have accomplished, and identify how you met the program outcomes. The survey is based on the BSN Program Outcomes, as well as the AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice. As you complete the survey, you will also help the Division of Post-licensure Nursing measure the effectiveness of the program in preparing our graduates in these important areas. Your participation is voluntary and your answers are anonymous so please answer each question as honestly as you can. Thank you for your participation.
Upon successful completion of the course material, you will be able to:
