Updates and Modifications to this Individual Success Plan:  Always check the DC Network for updated versions of this plan for each course.

Instructions

Use this form to develop your Individual Success Plan (ISP) for each course, starting in DNP-805 through graduation. An individual success plan maps out what you, the DNP Learner, need to accomplish in order to be successful in your current course and overall program of study. You will also share this document with your mentor, preceptor, or content expert (CE) at the beginning of week one (like a pre-conference) and by the end of week eight of each course (like a post-conference).

In addition to the ISP, all DNP learners in DNP-836, 836A, DNP-837, 837A, DNP-838, and 838A will schedule a mid-conference between the faculty, mentor (preceptor), and learner before week five.  This mid-conference document is located at the end of the ISP and will be uploaded into the week five dropbox Learners will type their names, and the mentor, preceptor, or CE will need to electronically sign with software that uses a displayed digital identifier or written signature.

For you to successfully complete and graduate from the DNP Program, you must meet the following programmatic requirements: (1) completion of required practice immersion hours, (2) completion of work associated with all DNP and GCU program competencies, (3) successful defense and completion of your Direct Practice Improvement Project including signature by the Dean. DNP Learners who are deficient in hours or have a final manuscript deemed “not ready” for the Dean’s review at the end of the program may require additional extension courses to meet programmatic requirements prior to Dean’s approval.

It is your responsibility to obtain the practicum hours, log them correctly, ensure they are signed off, and upload a copy to the week eight (8) drop-box in order to receive a letter grade.  

 

ISP Table Requirements

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment as it pertains to deliverables due in this course:

  • Review the DNP Program Milestones document in the DC Network – Doctoral Program – DNP Program Materials – Folder – DPI Milestones. Please see the DNP Program Timeline in the DC Network for a quick overview.
  • Determine what practice experiences you plan to seek in order to address each course objective. Include the estimated number of associated practice immersion hours. Learners will apply objectives and concepts from each of their courses to reflect upon, critically examine, and improve current practice and are required to integrate scholarly readings to develop case reports that demonstrate increasingly complex and proficient practice.
  • Use the ISP to develop a personal plan for completing your practice immersion hours and self-assess how you will meet the GCU DNP Domains & Competencies (Appendix A) related to that course. Show all the major milestones (if applicable) and deliverables. ISPs do not earn practice hours, nor does telephone conference time or time spent with the mentor (unless there is National Emergency). Add your pre-, mid-, and post-conference dates and times to this document to ensure you have scheduled the time properly.

The table below should address the following programmatic requirements: (1) completion of required practice immersion hours, (2) completion of work associated with all DNP and GCU program competencies, (3) successful defense, and completion of your Direct Practice Improvement Project, if applicable to the current course.

Mentor-Faculty-Student Conference and Evaluation Information

A pre-and post-conference or evaluation between students and their mentors (preceptors) is mandatory for students enrolled in the educational emphasis courses DNP- 836, 836A, DNP-837, 837A, DNP-838, 838A.  This will be considered completed using the Individual Success Plan. Conferences may be conducted face-to-face or via technology. A signature (Electronic with a digital identifier or wet signature) is required from the mentor (preceptor) during the pre-and post-conference periods. The ISP is to be uploaded into the appropriate drop boxes by the due date.

 

A mid-term conference evaluation between students, faculty, and mentors (preceptors) is mandatory for students enrolled in all Educational Emphasis courses DNP- 836, 836A, DNP-837, 837A, DNP-838, 838A.  Conferences may be conducted face-to-face or via technology. A copy of this signed document will be uploaded into the course shell no later than the end of week five in the project courses.

 

Overall Course and Student Specific Objectives: These objectives should be discussed during each conference, as students are responsible for completing all experiences as mandated for the program.

 

A pre-conference: This meeting is intended for the student and mentor (preceptor) to review course and student-specific learning objectives: the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of the student and mentor (preceptor) during the practicum experience.   All faculty and mentor (preceptor) information will be given to each party per the student.  Any course or program information requested by the mentor (preceptor) will be provided by the student. During this meeting, the student and mentor (preceptor) will discuss the course and practicum goals, including any projects that are to take place. The faculty will review the submitted document and need to approve proposed projects at this time. The faculty will also send an introductory email to the mentor (preceptor).

 

A mid-term conference will occur no later than week five. This meeting is intended for the student, faculty, and mentor (preceptor) to discuss student progress toward meeting the course goals and practicum hours.  The faculty member will meet with the preceptor to conduct the student’s midterm evaluation (virtually). The mentor (preceptor) will meet with the student to review the evaluation form (in person or virtually). If there are areas that need improvement, the faculty will meet with the student to complete a remediation form.

 

A post-conference evaluation will occur at the end of the practicum experience. This is intended for the student and mentor (preceptor) to review and evaluate the completion of the ISP.  The mentor/preceptor will validate that all areas are at “meets expectations” on the mentor evaluation form located in Typhon or Lopestracker prior to progression. The learner will upload the ISP, Mentor evaluation, faculty evaluation, and signed-off Time Logs into the course drop boxes by week 8. Failure to upload required documents will result in an incomplete grade, which may convert to a failing grade for the course if not rectified.

 

Mid-term conference: Student-Faculty-Mentor (preceptor)

Review progress towards meeting course goals/objectives to include and update on the required 50 practicum hours for the course.  Please include the rationales provided by the student at the mid-term conference:

Expected challenges and how to overcome them

 

The achievement of the required competencies and the practice immersion are expected to present various barriers or challenges. The implication is that an individual has to make a plan and overcome these barriers to enable successful completion. Among the expected barriers or challenges is a losing focus. The course content and other activities undertaken during the study may lead to a loss of focus. A potential loss of focus is to be overcome by engaging in important activities only while ignoring unnecessary activities. This means that potential time-wasting activities such as aimless internet browsing will be avoided. Poor time management can also be a barrier to successful completion. This challenge can be overcome by creating a timetable and seeking help from peers and the mentor on how best to strike a balance.

Assessment Description

Select a specific health care technology-related regulation, law, statute, or ethical standard that applies to informatics. Provide a summary of your example and a statement describing your reasoning either in support of the example you select, or in opposition to it. Take into consideration the ethics of a Christian worldview in relation to the ethical standard, etc. in your summary.

Select a specific health care technology-related regulation: MyHealthEData as part of HIPPA rules is a new initiative enacted by the Trump administration in March 2018 to give patients access to their electronic health records (EHR) and insurance claims information. It is a privacy rule established nationally to protect individuals’ medical records and identifiable health information. HIPPA rules hold healthcare providers that conduct certain healthcare transactions electronically accountable with fines if the patient’s healthcare information were shared without the patient’s knowledge or consent. The Rule gives the patient’s the right over their protected health information, obtain a copy of their health records, and request corrections when necessary. (Cohen, I., G. & Mello, M., M., 2018).

Summary in Support of Example: I currently work with Medicare/Medicaid patient population from 18 years and above. Comprising mainly of elderly and homebound patients. Instead of the patient going to the clinic to see their PCP, we come to the convenience of their homes, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. I love my job as it gives me the opportunity to care for patients who are helpless and unable to care for themselves due to lack of social/family support. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there were significant reductions in inpatient healthcare visits, Emergency Department visits, home care visits, and outpatient utilization respectively. Prior to the pandemic, I declined offers for Telehealth position due to fraudulent activities. The growth in telehealth usage skyrocketed in the year 2020 due to consumer demand caused by the global pandemic. There are different kinds of Telehealth such as telemonitoring, teleradiology, telenursing, and telemedicine visits. The most popular modes of Telehealth delivery were telephone, email, and text messages. The usage of video-based telehealth had increased since 2020 because that is the only way healthcare can be delivered to those in need of healthcare during a global lockdown (Xu, S., Glenn, S., Lina Sy, L., Qian, L., Hong, V., Ryan, D. S., & Jacobsen, S. 2021).

As a Nurse Practitioner, I support Telehealth/Telemedicine and was opportune to use it for the first time in the assessment and management of my patients during the COVID-19 pandemic lock-down period when the healthcare system was globally inaccessible to individuals and communities at large. Telehealth is cost-efficient and supported by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) legislation (Xu et al., 2021).

Take into consideration the ethics of a Christian worldview in relation to the ethical standard: The shortcoming is that most of my patient population are elderly and don’t have access to technology such as smartphones, laptops, or computers. They are Demented and unable to use electronics making HIPPA violations unavoidable (Xu et al., 2021). Since the enactment of HIPPA rules in 1996, healthcare providers/personnel are knowledgeable about the consequences of non-compliance. Future research should be based on how to spread awareness and involve patients and their relatives to be compliant with HIPPA rules during Telemedicine visits (Xu 2021).

The 618th section of the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) of 2012 created recommendations and strategies on how there should be a risk-based framework for health IT. This allows for innovation while maintaining patient safety and security from regulatory replication. This allowed the FDA to charge fees for generic or brand medications or medical equipment. The provided engagement into the process of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and encourage innovation in the pharmaceutical world to provide the quicker access to safe products (Mullin, 2018).

I am not a huge proponent of adding fees to fix problems, as that can result in driving up the cost to pharmaceuticals and medical production to the front line consumer. I appreciate the encouragement that it provides for innovation. I do have concerns that these fee can result in some consumers not having access due to financial constraints. I do believe in this specific case the risk does outweigh the benefit. This partnership with the FDA for safety and encouragement for innovation is what has my overall support of the legislation.

 

From the lens of the Christian world view it is important to be able to provide everyone with the same access to care. That has been and will continue to be a struggle for us in the upcoming years. There is also a motivation to have  access to the best possible care which I also see to the very important from this viewpoint. I do see this viewpoint as being supportive of FDASIA as well.

Assessment Description

The Individual Success Plan (ISP) assignment in this course requires your collaboration with the course faculty early on to establish a plan for successful completion of mutually identified and agreed-upon specific deliverables for your programmatic requirements. Programmatic requirements are: (1) completion of required practice immersion hours, (2) completion of work associated with program competencies, and (3) work associated with completion of your Direct Practice Improvement (DPI) Project.

A preconference meeting is intended for the learner and preceptor/mentor to review course- and learner-specific learning objectives: the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of the learner and preceptor/mentor during this practice immersion experience. All faculty and preceptor/mentor information will be given to each party by the learner. Any course or program information requested by the preceptor/mentor will be provided by the learner. During this meeting, the learner and preceptor/mentor will discuss the course and practice immersion goals, including any projects that are to take place. The faculty will review the submitted document and must approve proposed projects at this time. The faculty will also send an introductory email to the preceptor/mentor.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment as it pertains to deliverables due in this course.

  • Locate and download Individual Success Plan (ISP) and Direct Practice Improvement (DPI) timeline documents in the DNP PI Workspace.
  • Review the DNP Program Milestones document in the DNP PI Workspace and identify which domains, competencies, and milestones apply to this course. Note: Not all courses have milestones.
  • Determine what practice immersion experiences you plan to seek in order to address each competency. Include how many hours you plan to set aside to meet your goals. Learners will apply concepts from each of their core courses to reflect upon, critically examine, and improve current practice and are required to integrate scholarly readings to develop case reports that demonstrate increasingly complex and proficient practice.
  • Use the ISP to develop a personal plan for completing your practice immersion hours and how competencies will be met. Show all of the major milestones and deliverables in the timeline.
  • Within the ISP, ensure you identify specific deliverables which can include the following: individualized DNP practice immersion contracts; comprehensive log of practice immersion hours applied to doctoral-level learning outcomes; learner evaluations; preceptor/mentor evaluations; current and updated CV; scholarly activities; GCU DNP competency self-assessment; reflective journal; course goals and plan for how competencies and practice immersion hours will be met; faculty and preceptor/mentor approvals of course goals and documented practice immersion hours; and DPI Project milestones.
  • While an ISP is required, unless you have a mentor, a mentor signature is not required for this course. A preconference and a postconference/evaluation between learners and preceptors/mentors are mandatory for all learners enrolled in all DNP courses (from DNP-815A on). Conferences may be conducted face-to-face or via technology. A copy of the wet-ink or digitally (digital identifier) signed document must be uploaded into the classroom no later than the end of Topic 1.
  • Overall course- and learner-specific objectives: These objectives should be discussed during each conference, as learners are responsible for completing all experiences as mandated for the program.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to the beginning to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
