Using the Program Objectives as the outline, beginning with Program Objective 1: Identify the objective, considering the reason for having the objective within the framework of the nursing program. Do not use the objective as a heading; rather integrate the program objective into your narrative. Use scholarly literature (theoretical and evidence-based journal articles) with appropriate citations to substantiate points made in your discussion of the objective. Why is this objective important to the School of Nursing curriculum? For instance, objective one is to use the UCF School of Nursing conceptual framework as a basis for professional nursing practice. Ask yourself: why is it important to use a conceptual framework as a basis for professional nursing practice? Then find literature to support why it is important, and use that as your scholarly literature. For objective one, you will not be discussing the conceptual framework, but rather why using a conceptual framework is important. Scholarly literature is NOT a substantiation of assignments completed in the program. It demonstrates the importance or reason for incorporating the objective into the curriculum. Discuss which of the AACN Essentials of Bacalaureate Education are met by this objective. Use exemplars from your papers, logs, care plans, BB Discussion Boards, clinical experiences, etc. to provide the evidence that you have accomplished each of the Program Objectives. * Explain your movement toward mastery of this objective throughout your course of study from your first semester on.
- Identify what you will need to do to continue to work on mastery of the objective. Program Objectives: At the completion of the University of North Florida′s baccalaureate program in nursing, the graduate will: 1. Use the UNF School of Nursing conceptual framework as a basis for professional nursing practice. 2. Synthesize knowledge from nursing, the natural and social sciences, mathematics and the humanities as the basis for providing culturally competent care within a diverse society.
