Senior Capstone Community Project (FPB School of Nursing)

The Senior Capstone Project is a practicum that provides senior BSN students with the opportunity to analyze the concepts of health and health care, health policy and finance, culture, and ethics. The preceptored, 10-week community-based immersion experience is held during the fall semester in local, national, or international settings. Students apply epidemiological techniques, the skills of negotiation, partnership building, community assessment, and nursing science in the identification and analysis of a health problem leading to the development of an intervention. Recent projects have taken students to local Cleveland schools as well as to Australia, Chile, Denmark, St. Lucia, and the Virgin Islands.
