Consider the benefits and challenges associated with involving a nurse leader on an implementation team for health information technology.

Role of the Graduate Nurse in New System Development

Hi all,

In Week 10 you will not have a discussion forum. There is an assignment due on Sunday at midnight EST. The assignment is listed below:

Assume you are a nurse manager on a unit where a new nursing documentation system is to be implemented. You want to ensure that the system will be usable and acceptable for the nurses impacted. You realize a nurse leader must be on the implementation team.

To Prepare:

  • Review the steps of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and reflect on the scenario presented.
  • Consider the benefits and challenges associated with involving a nurse leader on an implementation team for health information technology.

The Assignment: (2-3 pages)

In preparation of filling this role, develop a 2- to 3-page role description for a graduate-level nurse to guide his/her participation on the implementation team. The role description should be based on the SDLC stages and tasks and should clearly define how this individual will participate in and impact each of the following steps:

  1. Planning and requirements definition
  2. Analysis
  3. Design of the new system
  4. Implementation
  5. Post-implementation support

My suggestion is to set up your paper using the bullets above as headings. This is a good organizational tip.

  1. Review the sample formatted paper I have sent in many messages for the proper set up of the title page (use this formatted paper if you like and just write over)
  2. The first heading is the title of your paper, bolded
  3. The introduction paragraph includes the main points (consider the areas noted in the bullets above). Also include a purpose statement: The purpose of this paper is…….
  4. Write about each area but do not do so literally. Writing in first person is frowned upon in academic papers. Just delete the “I”, “we”, “they”, “she”, “him” terms and the sentence should be fine.
  5. ALWAYS include a conclusion paragraph that reminds the reader of the main points in your paper.
  6. the References page. The heading is References, bolded, and should be centered. Review how to format references.

Please note the need to integrate credible, outside and course specific resources to demonstrate critical thinking and lend support to your ideas in your assignments. As a guide, you should integrate 3 or more peer-reviewed sources and 2 or more course resources for these assignments. The full statement on assignments from the syllabus is also provided below.

  1. Assignments: The Assignments provide you with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained through the Learning Resources and the practicum experience. See the Assignment area of specific weeks for detailed descriptions of the assignments. In grading the required Assignments, your Instructor will be using rubrics located in the Course Information area.

Note: The course Assignments will require that you completely and accurately demonstrate critical thinking via assimilation and synthesis of ideas when using credible, outside and course specific resources (i.e. video, required readings, textbook), when comparing different points of view, highlighting similarities, differences, and connections, and/or when lending support to your Assignment responses.

I look forward to reading your papers! Let me know if you need any more support!
