DNP 960 Topic 1 Individual Success Plan (ISP)

Planning is the key to successful completion of the Direct Practice Improvement (DPI) Project. The Individual Success Plan (ISP) assignment in this course requires your collaboration with your chair 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 toward completion of your Direct Practice Improvement (DPI) Project.

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) document in the DC Network.
  • Review the “DNP Program Milestones” document and identify which milestones apply to this course. Note: Not all courses have milestones.
  • Determine what practice 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 Individual Success Plan to develop a personal plan for completing your practice hours and how competencies will be met. Show all of the major milestones and deliverables.
  • Within the Individual Success Plan, ensure you identify specific deliverables which can include the following: individualized DNP practice immersion contracts; comprehensive clinical log of hours applied to doctoral level learning outcomes; learner evaluations; 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 mentor approvals of course goals and documented practice immersion hours; and DPI Project milestones.
  • Identify the specific deliverables you will complete throughout this course from those defined above or others negotiated with your faculty. You need to turn in a new Individual Success Plan for each DNP course.
  • Identify the remaining deliverables you will complete in the upcoming courses.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Consider the challenges you expect to encounter as you continue the practice hour and competency requirements throughout this course? How might you overcome these challenges?

You can renegotiate these deliverables with your faculty throughout this course and update your Individual Success plan accordingly.

Directions:

Complete the Contact Information table at the beginning of the ISP resource, and type in your signature and the date on which you completed the table.

Read the information in the ISP document including the following:

  1. Learner expectations.
  2. Derivation of the ISP.
  3. Instructions for completing the ISP.

Follow the instructions and complete the ISP.

Portfolio Practice Hours

Learners will track their practice hours within the Typhon Tracking System throughout each course and via the Practice Hours Completion Statement provided in this assignment.

Complete the following statement in a Word document, submit it to the instructor, and complete the Typhon Tracking System entries appropriate for this course.

Practice Hours Completion Statement DNP-960

I, (INSERT NAME), verify that I have completed (NUMBER OF) practice hours in association with the goals and objectives for this course. I have also tracked said practice hours in the Typhon Student Tracking System for verification purposes and will be sure that all approvals are in place from my faculty and practice mentor.

 

DNP 960 Topic 1 Course Completion and Progression Acknowledgement

During DNP-960, you will be required to complete your IRB submission. You will need to have facility IRB approval (if your facility has an IRB) prior to submitting to GCU. If your project site does not have an IRB, you will be required to have site approval. GCU IRB submission is a mandatory achievement at this point in the program. If you do not submit to GCU IRB within the prescribed timeframe of the DNP-960 course, you will receive a zero for the Topic 3 assignment and you will not progress to DNP-965. Please utilize all of the IRB submission resources available in DC Network and iMedRIS (iRIS).

General Requirements:

  1. Confirm that your project meets the GCU DPI requirement; that it translates existing knowledge or guidelines into clinical practice to improve patient outcomes.
  2. Ensure that your clinical questions are feasible with your population and clinical site and in alignment with your method, design, data collection, and data analysis.
  3. Remove comments and track-changes from your proposal before submission to IRB.
  4. Accurate grammar, APA style, and scholarly writing is required. Please note that your chairperson is not an editor. You will be responsible for ensuring your compliance with APA.
  5. Remember that your manuscript will undergo several reviews from your chairperson, content expert, AQRs, department chairperson, and dean that will require multiple iterations. Please be open to feedback and incorporate the feedback into your manuscript to improve quality and rigor.

Looking ahead:

  1. In DNP-960 or DNP-965after you receive GCU IRB approval, you can begin your project implementation. You should never be sitting idle while waiting for IRB approval. Begin writing your templates for Chapters 4 and 5 (without data until implementation with IRB approval). Your negotiated deliverables should include as much progress on these chapters as possible in the form of a working draft.
  2. In DNP-965, you will need to submit a final completed manuscript in Topic 5 to AQR. If you are unable to complete this submission within the designated timeframe, you will be required to take an extension course to finish your project or manuscript. In Topic 8, you will submit your final committee-approved manuscript for departmental review. You will have the opportunity for one iteration with the department until your manuscript is sent for Dean Review. If your manuscript is not deemed ready to be sent to the dean by the department, you will be required to take an extension course to continue to work with your chairperson. You will need to have a dean-approved manuscript, completed all courses with a passing grade, and 1,000 practice immersion hours to be eligible for graduation.

Directions:

Complete the following statement in a Word document and submit it to your instructor by the end of Topic 1.

I, (INSERT NAME), verify that I have read, understand, and will comply with all requirements set forth for course completion and progression. I have reviewed the DPI Project requirements and am fully aware of my options if I am not able to successfully complete the required level of milestone development.
