Course Project: Health Promotion Proposal
The purpose of this assignment is to provide the student an opportunity to design a health promotion proposal specific to your role specialization.
Each student will write a scholarly paper that demonstrates graduate school level writing and critical analysis of existing nursing knowledge. The paper will be a minimum of 12 pages and maximum of 15 pages, using APA style.
There are multiple sections to the project. These include:
The final project is due in Week 5 and will be composed of the above sections which you will adjust weekly based upon the feedback from your facilitator. All sections will be submitted in one document. Additional explanation for each section is provided in the relevant week’s directions.
Choosing Your Topic
The frist step in the project is to identify a topic appropriate for a health promotion project. There are multiple areas to look for acceptable projects, such as the Health People 2020 site, The Institute of Medicine, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), and current literature in the South University library. You may also want to look at the websites for professional nursing organizations who may also have listings of health promotion priorities.
If you have any difficulty in identifying the topic, please talk to your instructor. Once you are clear on the area of interest, narrow the topic to something that is specific and measureable. For example, if you are interested in the care of the elderly, you may want to focus on a project to lessen the fall rate for the elderly.
Week 1 Project Task:
Prepare a proposal in the form of a two-page paper which describes a detailed plan for the project.
