Interview a community health and public health provider regarding that person's role and experiences within the community.

 

The RN to BSN program at Grand Canyon University meets the requirements for clinical competencies as defined by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), using nontraditional experiences for practicing nurses. These experiences come in the form of direct and indirect care experiences in which licensed nursing students engage in learning within the context of their hospital organization, specific care discipline, and local communities.

This assignment consists of both an interview and a PowerPoint (PPT) presentation.

pls note:

 

Hello class,

I am including information that I hope you find helpful as you complete the Community Assessment assignment.
Given the amount of detail required for the assignment, you will need to include speaker notes with the PowerPoint slides. PowerPoint slides should not include a lot of text. PowerPoint slides should include bulleted items. The detail, with complete sentences and citations, should be included in the speaker notes.

Review the rubric to see all that you should include. Remember, the slides should have “bullets.” The speaker notes will have the detail. The speaker notes will need citations when references were used to write the information.
A reference slide is needed.

PowerPoint Tips

  • – easy to read
  • Use graphics
  • Keep wording concise
  • Keep font size large (use at least a 32 point)
  • Keep size consistent
  • DON’T USE ALL CAPS- IT MAKES BULLET POINTS DIFFICULT TO READ – and it can be perceived as shouting.
  • Use bold when you want something to stand out
  • Better yet, change the color of the text you want your audience to be drawn to
  • Italics are hard to read
  • No more than 6 bullets per slide
  • No more than 6-7 words per bullet
  • Don’t use periods at the end of bullets
  • Capitalize the first word in a bullet but no others (unless it would normally appear capped)
  • A presentation is not a book; one thought per line
  • No more than 2 levels of bullets per slide
  • Simple backgrounds are best
  • An occasional use of simple animation can be used to create drama
  • Overuse of animation can be distracting
  • Graphics should be used for visual appeal
  • Graphics are best on the left with words to the right of the graphic
  • Include a reference slide
