Purpose
To analyze own performance on the integrated comprehensive assessments and reflect on areas of opportunity and strategies to promote NCLEX-RN success and transition into practice.
The student will apply the priority concept (topic) to evidence-based professional practice upon which nurses have the ability to resolve or have a positive impact. There is a focus on the healthcare disparities of the individual, as well as ethical and legal implications to professional practice.
The student will discuss how an interdisciplinary approach promotes quality improvement for the patient and evidence-based professional practice, driving positive outcomes

Purpose
To analyze own performance on the integrated comprehensive assessments and reflect on areas of opportunity and
strategies to promote NCLEX-RN success and transition into practice. The student will apply the priority concept
(topic) to evidence-based professional practice upon which nurses have the ability to resolve or have a positive
impact. There is a focus on the healthcare disparities of the individual, as well as ethical and legal implications to
professional practice. The student will discuss how an interdisciplinary approach promotes quality improvement for
the patient and evidence-based professional practice, driving positive outcomes.

Course outcomes: This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:
CO # 1: Synthesize knowledge from sciences, humanities, and nursing in managing the needs of humans as

consumers of healthcare in a patient-centered environment. (PO#1)
CO # 2: Integrate communication and relationship skills in teamwork and collaboration functioning effectively with

health team members and consumers of care. (PO#3)
CO # 3: Utilize information technology to manage knowledge, mitigate error, and support decision making with health

team members and consumers of care. (PO# 8)
CO # 4 Integrate critical thinking, clinical reasoning skills, best current evidence, clinical expertise, and patient/family

preferences/values in the implementation of the nursing process. (PO# 4)
