The process for affecting positive change to improve practice outcomes can start with either the identification of an area of interest or the identification of a potential or existing practice problem. Selecting an area of interest helps to define a direction for further inquiry. The purpose of this assessment is for students to identify and discuss an area of interest specific to advanced practice nursing. Students will identify a common practice problem related to the selected area of interest and provide a recommendation to affect positive change. Students will build on this project in later courses. 

Note: The purpose of the MSN project is to translate evidence currently found in the literature into practice within the chosen specialty track. Due to the research complexity, time involvement, and implications regarding human subjects, drug studies are not acceptable areas of interest for an MSN project.

The creation of new interventions in nursing practice is carried out by taking into consideration the need for use of evidence based practice activities. The EBP is carried out by making use of MSN skills. This implies that one should have skills on the process of carrying out EBP projects. The skills will be fundamental in ensuring that one develops an intervention.

Slide 3

The conceptual change model that is to be implemented is Lewin’s three step change model that is intended to be used in the process of implementation of changes and the steps that are implemented are expected to be in line with the freezing, the change process, and the refreezing as alluded by Barrow and Toney-Butler (2017). The process of evaluation is intended to be carried out by having a clear process of decision making on how to handle the issue of changes….
