your first entry for your Public Health Nursing Practicum Documentation, you will create the overall goals for your practicum. This information will go in the Overall Practicum Goal section of the ""Public Health Nursing Practicum Documentation" form.
Use the S.M.A.R.T. goal format to write goals you have for your overall practicum experience. What do you want to accomplish during this practicum course? Keep this statement broad enough to cover everything that you would like to do during your practicum course. You may choose to focus in on a specific aspect of public health nursing or may choose to sample a variety of public health nursing experiences within your selected practicum experience.
When planning for your practicum it is important to remember that your goals must correspond to at least one standard every 2 weeks. If your hours are completed earlier, in the remaining weeks where you are not completing hours, you can submit the documentation form with a statement saying that competencies have been met and hours have been completed as of the date for the topic indicated.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
