Hello everyone,

Keep up the great work you are doing in class! These are some tips for class to help you get through this course successfully.

First, keep in mind that this is not just a class where you are writing papers. This is your capstone project and the detail that is needed should be included. Second, assessments have to be submitted in order and they build on each other. So, the next assessment should be submitted after you read the feedback on the previous one. It is important to read all directions very thoroughly in this course.

Assessment #1- Students often do not address the state board of nursing area adequately on this section. Tip-this is about your state board of nursing specifically.

Assessment #2- This is a plan proposal. You are building on what you wrote in assessment #1 and telling me your plan. Tip- Don’t forget the detail! This is your project, not just another paper!

Assessment #3- This is the discussion of the educational activity you will be conducting in a paper format. Tip- submission of your paper, your brochure or flyer, and your CORE Elms entered hours are a necessity.

Assessment #4- This is a Kaltura video and a reference list. Tip-Please submit both. Students sometimes forget one or the other.

Assessment #5- This is your Pathbrite eportfolio. Please read the directions very, very carefully. Tip- read the directions and click on the 3 links in the middle of the instructions page. This will help you create your eportfolio. Next, make it public so I can actually see it. Finally, upload all the competencies and your resume. Please don’t forget to tell me what your 2 artifacts will be according to the scoring guide.

As always, please follow the scoring guide as well. I hope this helps everyone!

thanks
