Need RN-BSN capstone project ideas

  1. 0
    Hello fellow nurses,

    I'm in the last term of my RN-BSN program and can't seem to come up with a Capstone project idea. I currently work part-time in LTC/Skilled Nursing but would like to be gaining acute care experience in a hospital work place. The company I work for has both hospitals and LTC facilities, so I'd like to do a project that would help me land a transfer into an acute care position after graduation in June. I left a message for the Med-Surg nurse manager at one of the nearby hospitals and offered to do my capstone on a topic of importance to her specific clinical area. She hasn't responded.

    Any ideas? I need to get going on this and I'm just spinning my wheels.

    try leaving a message with the nurse educator for that floor. in my experience, he/she usually is the one that has a lot of projects to complete for the floor. one nurse manager i know gives out several projects a semester to bsn students, rn new graduate residents, and rns (those trying to improve points for his/her career ladder) to complete them more efficiently. it is a win-win situation for all involved!!! gl!:d

    What about reaching out to a Nurse Manager in a specialty area in one of the hospitals? They may have a better idea of something they might want. Do any specialties interest you? If so I would start there. You will find something. It is hard to make suggestions as it is kinda a personal goal and I know nothing about you. Do you know any BSN nurses who are closer to you that you could ask?

    hey night owl, im not new to this site, but i have always just gotten on here to talk to other nurses who are trying to get in the airforce like i am. i am getting ready to start my capstone class too and i am having trouble as well trying to come up with a project. i actually work in a hospital and i am wigging out trying to figure it out. i guess we can try to ask our managers for any ideas like the one person on here said in their post. i used to work in long term care as a tech for 5 years and maybe one thing you could focus on is fall risk, bedsores or maybe something to that extent. if i think of anything i will let you know. i have to have a preceptor help me out with my project and help guide me and be a resource and that is required for my class cause i have to put their contact info down and stuff so my teacher can call them if need be. do you have to have one too? talk to you soon
