3 Introduction The MN curriculum is designed to prepare nurses for advanced professional practice in a variety of roles and contexts as needed in our contemporary health care system. Therefore, the practice component of the program allows students to establish beginning level competencies in advanced practice as defined by the Canadian Advanced Practice Nursing Framework (CNA, 2002) and/or other relevant frameworks. The MN program bases the definition and description of advanced nursing practice on the work by the Canadian Nurses Association and therefore views Advanced Nursing Practice in the broadest terms. Through broad consultation and extensive reviews of the practice of nurses in advanced roles (i.e. Clinical Nurse Specialists and Nurse Practitioners) CNA developed a national framework (2002) for advanced nursing practice and the following definition. Advanced nursing practice is an umbrella term that describes nursing practice at the edges of the expanding boundaries of nursing s scope of practice It describes an advanced level of practice that maximizes the use of in-depth nursing knowledge and skill in order to assume leadership roles in health care organizations and/or to meet the health needs of clients (individuals, families, groups, populations or entire communities) In this way, advanced nursing practice extends the boundaries of nursing s scope of practice and contributes to nursing knowledge as well as the development and advancement of the profession (p. 4). The Practicum will provide students with an intensive practice experience in their selected field of study. Ryerson's proximity to a broad range of health care facilities, community organizations and government agencies will enable students to have excellent practice opportunities in both the leadership/education and health/illness streams. Students will have an opportunity to advance and apply their knowledge and skills in a variety of specialty areas of nursing practice, research, education, policy and/or administration. In the Seminar in Professional Nursing Advancement (MN 8904), which is taken concurrently with the Practicum, students will examine linkages between theory, research and advanced practice in their fields of study Practicum Requirements Students will work with practicum faculty (MN 8905) and the Ryerson Clinical Placement Office to negotiate and confirm a practicum placement. Students will identify a preceptor with graduate education with whom they will work closely during their 12 week practicum. These negotiations are normally started one term prior to being enrolled in MN Student practicum placements are subject to review and approval by the Program Director, Master of Nursing The practicum is NOT a work study and therefore students are required to complete their practicum outside of their place of employment. The practicum requirement is 16 hours per week over the 12 week course (192 hours) for MN The weekly 3-hour Seminar in Professional Nursing Advancement (MN 8904) must be taken concurrently with the Practicum. 2

4 Students Program of Study forms will be finalized by the first term of enrolment and students will know which term they will be enrolled in MN 8904 and MN This allows students ample time to prepare for the term in which the practicum hours are required. Successful completion of the Practicum is required to graduate from the MN program. Students are expected to meet regularly with their preceptors throughout the term, during regular hours for advanced practice preceptors (typically Monday to Friday) and should plan to spend the majority of their time in the practice setting. This is an essential feature of the Practicum and will allow for student socialization into advanced nursing roles as well as maximize student learning about related expectations, and challenges. During their practice experience, students are expected to make a focused scholarly contribution to the organization based on their individual learning goals and the needs of their practice setting. The scholarly contribution is defined through negotiation between students and their preceptors and with input from faculty. Specific objectives, strategies, resources, expected outcomes, target dates, and evaluation criteria related to the scholarly contribution are reflected in the student s Practicum Agreement. Each student will prepare a Practicum Agreement in consultation with his/her preceptor and be prepared to submit a draft to the faculty advisor at the first scheduled MN 8904 Seminar (See Practicum Agreement Guidelines below). The practicum agreement is used by the student, the preceptor and the faculty advisor to evaluate the student s achievements throughout and upon completion of the course. Practicum Agreement Purpose: The practicum agreement is a working document to be used by the student, preceptor and course instructor to establish objectives that meet course and personal goals, identify strategies for achieving outcomes and identify measurable criteria for evaluation of the agreement. Developing Your Practicum Agreement 1. Identify your learning needs by a) reviewing the course outcomes, b) reflecting on your past experiences, learning and career goals, c) assessing your strengths and areas for development, and d) consulting with peers and colleagues. State your learning outcomes in relation to course outcomes specifically and in behavioural terms. 2. Identify available resources and strategies to assist you in achieving your outcomes. Consider people, places, literature and other resources. 3. Identify evidence that will demonstrate that established outcomes have been achieved using criteria for evaluation. Consider the various ways by which you can demonstrate that you have achieved the outcomes. Develop specific criteria for determining what 3

5 would constitute successful completion of the course. Examples of evidence might include (but are not limited to): Practice journal entries, PowerPoint Presentations, manuals developed, evaluations, photos of displays, teaching feedback, lesson plans/outlines, briefing notes, policy backgrounders. 4. Review your agreement with your preceptor to ensure that the outcomes can be achieved in the setting and that the suggested resources and strategies are realistic. Once you have reviewed the practice agreement with your preceptor, bring a copy to week 1 of the Advanced Practice Seminar for submission and review by the course professor. Format of Practicum Agreement There is no prescribed format required for the practice agreement, however it must address outcomes and each of the elements described in these guidelines. In addition, it must be approved by the course professor coordinating the course and the preceptor in the field setting. As a working document, it is understood that the plan may be revised during the course and that any revisions must be approved by the preceptor and course professor. The Central Placement Office (CPO) ensures that all nursing students submit evidence of all documentation related to health forms and immunization records required by the placement setting. Health requirements for graduate students will vary depending on the setting as graduate student placements may very often not take place in a clinical setting. Therefore, once your practicum placement is determined (usually in the term before your practicum) graduate students must verify what the health requirements are with the CPO MN coordinator. Placement Information Record (PIR) Practice Placement decisions and student assignments are based on some or all of the following: curriculum requirements, home address, and placement availability, past practice experience, interviews and faculty consultations. Ryerson requires that all official or formal electronic communications be sent from their official Ryerson address. For a complete overview of the document and to download the form please go to 4
