An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work.

Task #1: Leadership Experience: Blocks 1 & 2 of the Course of Study will walk you through this task. You may either write an APA format paper following the rubric outline, or create a PowerPoint for this task. If you do a PowerPoint, you will still need to meet all the rubric points, but you can write bullet points instead of paragraphs.

For this task, think about a problem you have identified at your workplace. This could be in the realm of policy, practice, education, or populations. Don’t focus on anything too broad; probably something related to a specific unit would be more manageable. You will need to identify an “organizational leader” who can offer guidance and give feedback regarding your project. This person is often a manager, but could also be a nurse educator or other person who is familiar with the needs of your organization. This person will need to evaluate you by signing the Verification Form. Keep in mind that you will not actually be carrying out the project, just planning for it. Choose either a policy change (EXAMPLE: All patients identified as high fall risk will use a bed alarm), practice change (EXAMPLE: Staff will use a prophylactic sacral dressing on all patients in the ICU to prevent sacral pressure ulcers), or education (EXAMPLE: Educational session planned for nursing staff on the use of new piece of equipment). Some students also write about a change in workflow, such as doing bedside rounding at shift change.

You start by collecting data from your own unit/ department. This could be statistical data, or observational data. Describe how you investigated the problem…..who did you talk to? Did you review any reports? What did you observe? Perhaps you have a reference from the literature, or from professional organizations which shows that the issue is a problem for healthcare in general. The “Analysis” section (A3) is where you will look at your data and draw conclusions about the current state of the issue on your unit or facility.

These are the areas which come back for revision most often:

For the cost-benefit analysis section, please use actual dollar estimates for both the “cost” (supplies/ educational time & salaries for staff, etc.) and the “benefit” or savings to the agency. You may use a table format for this if you wish. For supplies that may not cost anything but are still needed, enter these as $0.00. (For example, if you need a conference room for training and the hospital does not charge for this, enter this cost as $0.00.) *If you are doing an educational presentation, be sure to include the salary for the trainer, and salary for the staff members attending the training, since these are considered “costs” for the facility.

Also be specific regarding your timeline. Give estimates for how long it will take to accomplish EACH STEP of the project.

For engagement with stakeholders, discuss how you will meet or interact with them, and include feedback: What did they tell you about your project idea? For example, did your manager think it will be too expensive? Did the staff nurses think it will be too time-consuming? Do the physicians think it will be effective? (You need to include feedback from at least ONE stakeholder…..the person who signs your Verification Form is an obvious choice.)

The Implementation section (A8) should parallel your timeline, where you will discuss each step of the project in more detail. Be sure to indicate how you plan to measure how the project is successful.
