NRSE 4600 Starting on Aug 26

  1. I have not seen a thread for this class and would like to start one. For those of you who have taken this class, what did you need the mentor to exactly do for you during the 5 weeks? I have a few candidates, but I am not sure how much commitment the mentor needs to have for my project. Thank you!

    Hi MSTRN: I am also in this class. Did you get the email from the professor last week? In it she discussed how to select a mentor, the role they will play in our project, as well as how to go about selecting a capstone project. Let me know if you did not receive it and I will send you the link.

    Thank you for responding, Clevelin. I did receive the email last week with the attachment. It says the mentor needs to spend 20h over the 5 weeks with the student to discuss the project. I wonder what else the mentor needs to do.

    I have finished my degree. NRSE 4600 is an indirect clinical project. Your mentor is someone to bounce ideas off of. They can sometimes suggest an idea about your topic you hadn't considered. Do not be intimidated by this class. It is a research paper in steps that you review with your mentor. Totally doable. There is no clinical with this class.

    How is everyone doing on the first clinical project assignment?

    I think I am making this indirect project more than it should be, but the examples are horrible and I have no clue if I am doing this right...for the "Knowledge Skills Attitudes" section the rubric states "Two examples provided for each KSA. Is clearly written in the student's own words." So what the heck do we do???? I'm lost. Copy and past what they have, and put two ideas of our own of what? or use there examples and make them our own and write two ksas? Any thoughts or ideas?

    I am lost too. The instruction is so vague. In KSA, it says "please write in sentence form". I am not sure the subject of the sentence should be "I", "the nurse", or what. The KSAs at QSEN website are not even in sentence form.

    "Copy and past what they have, and put two ideas of our own of what? or use there examples and make them our own and write two ksas? Any thoughts or ideas?" - I am thinking of using examples that are related to my topic and following the way the KSAs are worded at QSEN website. I hope I won't flunk this last nursing class.

    Yea I was lost also...but I just looked over the websites KSA's and took what "applied" to my topic and reworded it to make it my own. Hope that is right....

    I can't think of a better way to do it. I also did some search about my topic, which helped me with the "wording" .

    I am taking this class too. Seems pretty straight forward, although I didn't receive the email from the professor even though I have already submitted the first assignment. If someone could please forward it to me. I will pm you my email addy. Thanks a bunch!

    I'm not sure what email you are talking about. The class syllabus and assignment rubric give all the information you need.
