There are 2 tasks for this assignment.

Task 1 – Project Outcomes & Results Analysis

Now that you have had an opportunity to implement your project and gather some preliminary results, you will want to compile those results for evaluation and analysis.

Implement the evaluation measures you have developed and tabulate results.

Write a 2-page summary of your analysis of the results and determine if the project outcomes were met.

Task 2 – Practicum Project Final Report

In this task, you will complete the final phase of your project’s lifecycle. The Practicum Project Final Report is your evaluation of the effectiveness of your project. You will need to include a full summary of tasks completed and the outcomes of those tasks. You will evaluate those outcomes to determine whether your intervention was successful and identify areas and ways for improvement. This is the main assignment for the course.

As stated in Project Management for the Advanced Practice Nurse, the report should be written for someone who is unfamiliar with the project. Sipes (2019) stated, “The report should be prepared as a document with consideration that the persons reading it may not be familiar with the project. They should be able to read the report and know the ‘who’ involved and at what level, what was done, how it was done, and why the project was needed” (p. 179).

Feel free to incorporate charts, tables, or graphs depicting any significant data collected into the report, if in the report you are referring to multiple parts of the chart, table, or graph, or if the resource provides a critical visual element that supports your final evaluation. Any charts, tables, or graphs depicting data that is not directly discussed or is only referenced once in your report should be included as an appendix.
