The identification of a need is the cornerstone of a project. The purpose of this assignment is to conduct an organizational needs assessment. The formulation of a comprehensive organizational needs assessment supports the professional formation of the DNP-prepared nurse. To complete the assessment of the organizational need, you will need to interview a key decision-maker at the practicum site. For students not implementing their DNP Project at a practicum site, complete the assignment as if you had interviewed a key decision-maker at a practicum site.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:
Formulate a needs-based organizational assessment to inform strategic leadership decision-making.
Develop strategies to lead project planning, implementation, management, and evaluation to promote high value healthcare.
Submit your assignment by 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 3. The late assignment policy applies to this assignment.
Length: 3-4 pages, excluding cover page and references
To create flexibility, we are providing you options on this assignment. Concept maps are an effective way to express complex ideas, especially for visual learners. For this assignment, each of the sections can be presented either as a narrative or as a concept map.
Please note that you are not required to complete any or all sections as a concept map. If you choose to use a concept map for a section, it should be created in Microsoft Word and placed in that section of your paper. The concept map must meet all the requirements of the assignment rubric for that section. The rubric and page length requirements of the paper are unchanged.
