NUR-721 Nursing Informatics: Practicum I
The Nursing Informatics Seminar and Practicum I and II are closely aligned. The two practicums provide a capstone experience for applying knowledge and skills acquired during the nursing informatics program. Practicum I and II are scheduled in the same healthcare setting. Learners select their learning environment based on course objectives and their professional goals, needs, and interests. In Nursing Informatics Seminar and Practicum I, learners, working with the online mentor and on-ground preceptor, develop a plan for practicum activities and select, initiate, and implement informatics related projects that may continue into the second practicum. Learners reflectively discuss their experiences, projects, and related learning in the online seminar. This course requires completion of 150 practicum hours.
