CAP Draft Instructions

Students submit two drafts of their CAP paper during the term. The student’s clinical instructor reviews the drafts and provides feedback. Each draft earns a maximum of 5 points.

Consult the “CAP Instructions and Rubric” document for guidance on content.

See the course roadmap for due dates.

1st draft contains:

· Introduction

· Literature review of the topic/issue

The first draft should include proper APA-styled citations for the articles referenced. It does NOT need to include an APA-styled title page; however, this is a requirement for the final paper.

2nd draft contains:

· Literature review of the solution/interventions

· Implementation/intervention

The second draft should include proper APA-styled citations for the articles referenced.

Instructor Feedback

· These drafts ARE an opportunity for the instructor to tell the student if they are on the right track for content, writing, and formatting.

· The drafts ARE NOT an opportunity to receive detailed corrections on content and APA style.

Students are encouraged to seek writing/APA assistance from the APA Publication Manual, ResU’s lib guides, the Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue, or through the TutorMe resource found on the landing page of Brightspace.

CAP Instructions and Rubric

Description:  The Clinical Application Project (CAP) is an opportunity for the BSN student to identify an issue, topic, or challenge that is relevant to their Role Transition clinical placement. The student will examine the research related to their topic and investigate the literature regarding a potential solution for, or intervention to improve, the issue. The student then creates a final project, intervention, or solution to their identified topic. They will present their work in a professional paper and electronic poster which will be presented via video.

Directions:  Identify a problem, issue of concern, or area for improvement relevant to your clinical setting. Describe the importance of the area of concern (include facts, statistics etc.). Consult with your RN preceptor and ResU clinical faculty regarding your topic. Your clinical instructor must approve the topic before work is initiated.

Critically analyze the literature related to the area of concern. Identify possible solutions to the selected area of concern, based on the evidence in the literature. Review each for its strengths, weaknesses, and feasibility. Select one solution. Engage in the necessary work for this quality improvement project (e.g., develop a new form and identify approvals required for its use). Although students may not have enough time to actually implement their entire project or quality improvement activity, the final work product should clearly outline the plan for implementation, including a timeline. Students will provide evidence of the final work product (e.g., educational program outline, instructional pamphlets, nursing form, pocket resource, new policy).

The student will create an electronic poster which visually represents the clinical application project. The e-poster displays similar components as the paper, but in a very concise and visually pleasing design. Further guidelines and instructions for the e-poster are included in the document entitled “e-Poster Creation”.

The final paper and electronic poster are graded according to the specifics contained in the following grading rubric. Due to the pandemic, e-poster presentations will not take place on campus. Instead, students are expected to present via video and upload to Brightspace. More information to follow.
