Clinical Project on E-Cigarettes

  1. I have to do a project as an alternative to a precepted clinical for my BSN course. It is the preferred option for those working full-time, which I do.

    My proposal is due tomorrow by midnight and I'm having a hard time coming up with titles for my proposal. I plan on doing the paper (a few pages) and a PowerPoint, and it's on Electronic Cigarettes. I see a lot of people: patients, family members, and even staff who are choosing "vaping" instead of smoking or quitting outright.

    I am trying to come up with something "catchy" like:

    Vaping: Are there benefits to it or is it all a smokescreen?
    Electronic Cigarettes: The Good, The Bad and the Truth.
    Electronic Cigarettes: To Vape or Not to Vape.

    Anyone have any suggestions to other titles for my proposal? I guess it should be what the title of my paper and PowerPoint are titled, correct?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Do you have the proposal written up? The title will come to you as you write the proposal. I don't think the title of proposal has to match the paper and powerpoint. You can have a basic title now and then come up with a catchy one later.

    Maybe make an acronym out of VAPE

    I'm a bit confused. What type of 'project' is this? Is it a lit review only? Are you going to be collecting data of some sort? Are you trying to obtain some sort of outcome data? From whom? If it is a research proposal, catchy titles are a strict no-go. Research papers are academic in nature. The title should reflect the content... e.g., "Effect of advertisements on product usage among users of electronic cigarettes"... srsly. Not fancy or catchy. It's an academic document, not an article in People magazine.

    Since this is an alternative activity to an actual preceptorship, I would imagine that the expectation is that you spend an equal number of hours devoted to this project. You may end up wishing you could have done the other option.
