Online Master of Science in Nursing Practicum Examples

“The faculty members were all very approachable and receptive to the students. Any questions were always answered in a timely manner, and many great suggestions were also given. It was extra special to be able to go back to share that my MSN practicum work was accepted for publication in a nursing journal. The response I got back was very supportive and I felt like they were proud of me.”

“My practicum was setting up a streamlined process for homeless Veterans to obtain healthcare and residential placement. This was a very rewarding topic that is sustained four years later. I have been asked to speak at the CNL National convention about it, and have presented the whole change process (using change theory) in other national forums. What a wonderful experience!”

Clinical Nurse Leader

“My practicum focused on the development of a team response to postpartum hemorrhage in an inpatient OB unit. The flexibility of the online program and course requirements allowed me to easily meet deadlines and outcomes for the practicum.”

— Jessica Rosati
Practice Manager

“My practicum topic was Delayed Newborn Bathing: Using PDSA and Rapid-Cycle Process Improvement to Support Staff Compliance with Practice Change. I was able to complete all of the objectives and competencies of the course very easily and learned a lot of skills that I still use today.”

— Lisa LeBlanc
Assistant Professor of Nursing

“My topic was Building a Critical Care Bed without Walls. This allows a critically ill obstetrical patient to be cared for on the labor and delivery unit and not be transferred antenatally or postnatally for a critical illness. In this way the maternal fetal dyad and maternal neonate couplet can stay together and be cared for with the expertise of the Obstetrical team with consultation from the intensivist and other consults. I am waiting to implement this model on my unit. Construction delays are the only obstacle at this time. Administrators and leaders are excited to put my practicum into reality.”

— Janet Stevens
Clinician

“My practicum topic was hourly rounding and how to make it more beneficial for both patients and staff. It focused on medication education and both staff and patient satisfaction.”
