NR 509 Week 5 Nursing Assignment: Debriefing Session or Alternate Writing Assignment
NR 509 Week 5 Nursing Assignment
You will need to complete either a debriefing session or the alternate writing assignment!
NR 509 Week 5 Nursing Assignment Debriefing
Faculty will lead virtual debriefing sessions during Weeks 1-6. The date, time, and duration of the weekly debriefing session will be posted by the course faculty. Students must register to attend the debriefing session.
During the debriefing process, students reflect upon their simulation experience and revisit their assessments, interventions, observations, and patient responses. Faculty coach students to review patient data and reflect upon the interventions performed in response to the clinical situation presented during the simulation experience. This process facilitates students to analyze their own thought processes and supports transference of knowledge gained from simulation experiences to actual clinical practice.
The goals of each debriefing session are to:
- Answer questions
- Address perspectives, perceptions, and concerns
- Emphasize and reinforce learning objectives and clinical outcomes
- Create linkages to the “real world”
- Assess and validate what was learned
Each student is expected to contribute to the debriefing session by:
- Reflecting on personal strengths, limitations, beliefs, prejudices, or values
- Identify improvement goals and strategies
- Discuss the simulation experience and provide comments and suggestions to student peers
- Transfer knowledge from the simulation experience to actual clinical practice
Please refer to the Debriefing Session Guidelines and Grading Rubric located in the Course Resource section.
NR 509 Week 5 Nursing Assignment Alternate Writing Assignment
NOTE: You will complete this alternate writing assignment ONLY if you had not participated or do not plan to participate in a debriefing session for the given week.
As a family nurse practitioner, you must possess excellent physical assessment skills. This alternate writing assignment mirrors the discussion content of the debriefing session and will allow the student to expand their knowledge of physical health assessment principles specific to the advanced practice role.
The purposes of this assignment are to: (a) identify and articulate advanced assessment health history and physical examination techniques which are relevant to a focused body system (CO 1), (b) differentiate normal and abnormal findings with regard to a disease or condition that impacts the body system (CO 2), and (c) adapt advanced assessment skills if necessary to suit the needs of specific patient populations (CO 4).
Please refer to the Alternate Writing Assignment Guidelines and Grading Rubric located in the Course Resource section.
