the role of the academic educator in the clinical setting with nursing students.

The assignment is a 3 to 4-paged paper. Be sure to refer to assignment guidelines and the assignment rubric. The required page length does not include the title page and references. Do NOT include an abstract.
For this assignment, you examine the role of the academic educator in the clinical setting with nursing students. You will develop a patient profile for a patient that you might encounter on this unit. The objective(s) set for the student should be for the day, rather than a semester. That keeps it simpler. Be specific. One of the required elements is a discussion of post conference. In this section, there should be identification/discussion of specific strategies used during post conferences to address the areas specified in the rubric.
Again, be sure to develop your papers according to assignment rubric. Note the following: (1) create a brief patient profile to match to match your assigned area/patient type; (2) APA level one and/or level headings should be used to effectively organize and present the content (see CoN example paper).
The papers should be structured as follows (again, the elements listed below should be discussed for each section along with any other elements in the assignment rubric):
a correctly APA7 formatted title page (see CoN example provided)
an introductory paragraph that includes/ends with a clearly written purpose statement (no abstracts)
a brief patient and student profile immediately following the introduction—no more than one paragraph
discussion of each required element
Objective for the Clinical Day – describe the objective you developed for the student nurse as he/she manages care for the assigned patient/specialty area; briefly describe a patient profile for the patient under consideration.
Activities—describe student learning activities that will be assigned and explain how they help in meeting the objective for the day
Core Competencies—what NLN educator competencies are being met when student assignments for the clinical area are made? Remember, the focus is the educator, not the student
Legal Ethical Issues—discuss any potential legal and/or ethical issues that could arise (discussion should include more than just a discussion of the nurse practice act for the state; think specifically about the agency/practice partner’s clinical environment—what is important to ensure that students perform, adhere to, etc?
Post Conference—make sure you address specific strategies that could be used to address each of the elements listed in the rubric (i.e., translating theory into practice, etc.) with students in the debriefing/post-conference. The focus is not a general discussion of the elements but rather how you can address these topics with students? What strategies could be used for each to make sure students understand, ‘connect the dots’? Be specific.
a conclusion paragraph for the paper
a correctlyAPA7 formatted reference list
