The preceptor has a job to ensure the new nurse is competent with skills to provided adequate, safe nursing care to patients. The preceptor has to wear many hats with the new nurse such as role model, educator, friend, confidant, and socializer. The preceptor must observe the new nurse and evaluate the skills of the nurse.

Evaluations that reflect judgments about the performance of the graduate student from nursing students, the preceptor, and the graduate student are examined. Clinical Practicum Analysis and Synthesis The purpose of this practicum was to provide an opportunity to gain experience and knowledge about the role of an academic nurse educator. The objectives of the practicum were developed using the National League for Nursing (NLN) core competencies for academic nurse educators. The responsibilities for which academic nurse educators are held accountable are related to the eight core competencies described by the NLN (NLN, 2005). The analysis and synthesis will utilize the NLN core competencies to discuss issues related to the application of the nurse educator role, strategies and approaches that were applied to the role, and a description and analysis of the clinical project that was undertaken.
Change theory will be utilized to implement the plan. A failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) will project the likelihood that the process improvement plan suggested will not fail. Additionally the role of the professional nurse in functioning as a leader in promoting quality care and influencing quality improvement activities will be discussed. A.Root Cause Analysis A root cause analysis (RCA) is “a process for identifying the basic or causal factors that underlie variation in performance, including the occurrence or possible occurrence of a sentinel event” (Cherry & Jacob, 2011, p. 442). The people involved in the RCA should be the people involved in the scenario: the RN (Nurse J), the LPN, the physician (Dr. T.), the emergency room manager, and a figure from administration (Chief Nursing Officer?).
