ISP Instructions 

Use this form to develop your Individual Success Plan (ISP) for NRS-493, the Professional Capstone and Practicum course. An  individual success plan maps out what you, the RN-to-BSN student, needs to accomplish in order to be successful as you work  through this course and complete your overall program of study. You will also share this with your preceptor at the beginning and end  of this course so that he or she will know what you need to accomplish.  

In this ISP, you will identify all of the objectives and assignments relating to the 100 direct clinical practice experience hours and the  25 indirect clinical practice hours you need to complete by the end of this course. Use this template to specify the date by which you will complete each assignment. Your plan should include a self-assessment of how you met all applicable GCU RN-to-BSN Domains  & Competencies (see Appendix A).  

NRS 493 Topic 1 IndividualSuccessPlan KR

General Requirements 

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of each assignment as it pertains to deliverables due in this course: 

Use the Individual Success Plan to develop a personal plan for completing your clinical practice experience hours and self-assess  how you will meet the GCU RN-to-BSN University Mission Critical Competencies and the Programmatic Domains &  Competencies (Appendix A) related to that course.  

Show all of the major deliverables in the course, the topic/course objectives that apply to each deliverable, and lastly, align each  deliverable to the applicable University Mission Critical Competencies and the course-specific Domains and Competencies (see  Appendix A).  

Completing your ISP does not earn clinical practice experience hours, nor does telephone conference time, or time spent with your preceptor. 

Within the Individual Success Plan, ensure you identify all graded course assignments and indirect clinical assignments listed in  the table on the next page.
