Unlike a personal journal of thoughts and feelings, this leadership journal is a record of your activities, assessments, and learning related to this academic experience.
Journal entries should include a record of the number of hours spent with your nurse leader each week.
Write a journal entry of 750-1,500 words on the subject of purpose, including the following:
Practicum Activities Reflection: Provide observations and thoughts on the activities in your practicum during Weeks 5, 6, & 7.
Application of Leadership: Describe your preceptor’s leadership style. How does it affect the people they lead? Do staff members express feelings of support and helpfulness? Are there examples of dictating rather than leading? Does the leader say or do things designed to “build up” staff, or have you seen missed opportunities?
Practicum Project Preparation: Describe your communication plan for your stakeholders. Who will be notified of what and at what time? What education is needed and for whom?
Leadership Video Reflection: Reflect on at least two things you learned from the “Servant Leadership – Issue of Rule” video.
Use the “Leadership Journal Template,” located in Class Resources, to complete this assignment.
