What happens if you                submit your coursework after the deadline?

If you hand your coursework in after the official deadline, you will be subject to penalties. Please read the following extract from the Course Handbook.

Penalties for late submission of coursework

The University operates a two-tier penalty system for late submission of coursework and in-module assessment. This regulation applies to all students registered for an award irrespective of their level of study.

All University coursework deadlines are scheduled between Monday and Thursday inclusive. Where possible, the submission day will coincide with the day the module classes are normally taught. However, the University does not allow submission deadlines to be set for Fridays.

If you submit your coursework late but within 24 hours of the specified deadline, 10% of the overall marks available for that element of assessment (i.e. 10%) will be deducted, as a penalty for late submission, except for work which obtains a mark in the range 50 – 59%, in which case the mark will be capped at the pass mark (50%).

If you submit your coursework more than 24 hours after the specified deadline, you will be given a mark of zero for the work in question.

Late work and any claim of Mitigating Circumstances relating to coursework must be submitted at the earliest opportunity to ensure as far as possible that the work can still be marked.

You will normally have the right to submit coursework 5 working days after the original deadline. Once the work of other students has been marked and returned, late submissions of that same piece of work cannot be assessed

Academic Success And Professional Development Plan Part 6: Finalizing The Plan

At some point in every construction project, efforts turn from design and the focus moves to actual construction. With the vision in place and the tools secured, the blueprint can be finalized and approved. Then it is time to put on hardhats and begin work.

Throughout the course you have developed aspects of your Academic and Professional Development Plan. You have thought a great deal about your vision and goals, your academic and professional network of support, research strategies and other tools you will need, the integrity of your work, and the value of consulting the work of others. With your portfolio in place, it is now time to finalize your blueprint for success.

Much as builders remain cognizant of the building standards as they plan and begin construction, nurses must remain mindful of the formal standards of practice that govern their specialties. A good understanding of these standards can help ensure that your success plan includes any steps necessary to excel within your chosen specialty.

In this Assignment you will continue developing your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan by developing the final component–a review of your specialty standards of practice. You will also submit your final version of the document, including Parts 1–5.

To Prepare:

  • Review the standards of practice related to your chosen specialty- Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse practitioner.
  • Download the Nursing Specialty Comparison Matrix.
  • Examine professional organizations related to the specialization you have chosen and identify at least one to focus on for this Assignment.
  • Reflect on the thoughts you shared in the Discussion forum regarding your choice of a specialty, any challenges you have encountered in making this choice, and any feedback you have received from colleagues in the Discussion.

The Assignment:
Complete the following items and incorporate them into the final version of your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan.

  • Complete the Nursing Specialty Comparison Matrix, comparing at least two nursing specialties that include your selected specialization and second-preferred specialization- Selected specialization is Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and the second -preferred specialization is Family nurse practitioner.
  • Write a 2- to 3-paragraph justification statement identifying your reasons for choosing your MSN specialization. Incorporate feedback you received from colleagues in this Module’s Discussion forum.
  • Identify the professional organization related to your chosen specialization for this Assignment, and explain how you can become an active member of this organization.    – American psychiatric nurses association.

Note: Your final version of the Academic Success and Professional Development Plan should include all components as presented the Academic Success and Professional Development Plan template.

Complete the following items and incorporate them into the final version of your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan:

·   Complete the Nursing Specialty Comparison Matrix comparing at least two nursing specialties, including your selected specialization and second-preferred specialization.

·   Write a 2-3 paragraph justification statement identifying your reasons for choosing your MSN specialization. Incorporate feedback you received from colleagues in this week’s Discussion Forum.

COMMENT SUZZET

I NEED A POSITIVE COMMENT BASED IN THIS ARGUMENT..BETWEEN 100-120 WORDS

After discussion with your mentor, name one financial aspect, one quality aspect, and one clinical aspect that need to be taken into account in developing the evidence-based practice project. Explain how your proposal will, directly and indirectly, impact each of the aspects.

Speaking with the mentor, the financial aspect of the project would be hours spent trying to get nurses educated on the proposed guidelines for late preterm infants. Hours will be needed as well to get the basic checklist implemented into the computer in this particular area, which requires going to different committees and getting approvals needed. This takes more than one nurse or person to get this done. This requires more hours of pay, and that would be the financial aspect of the proposed project.

Now, the clinical aspect that has to be taken into account with developing the project would be how the nurses will accept the project. As lifelong learners, staff nurses continually encounter new knowledge of relevance to their patients. The conscientious nurse remains alert to clinical problems and encourages investigation into ways to improve patient outcomes(Di Lenoardi, 2014). The nurses need to be given research and data that proves this could help readmission of late preterm infants. If given this data, they would be involved in the process of implementing as well,

In 2001, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended evidenced based practice to improve healthcare outcomes(Stephens, 2013). This project is to improve the quality outcome of late preterm infants and prevent their readmission to hospital.

All the aspects brought together will make a good impact on the project the author believes with the research and data given to the nurses, implementation and then follow up of results will show this is a great solution to help alleviate many readmissions nationwide as well. If this hospital shows that the guidelines are helping there, then they can show other colleagues in the nation that this helps and also will cut costs by preventing readmissions.
