You and the nurse manager both have concerns that this sentinel event must be investigated.

Scenario You have recently started a position as a department director with five managers reporting to you. Earlier today, one of your managers reports that a client expired on her unit. She suspects that a factor that may have contributed to the client’s demise may be related to the actions of a nurse on her unit. This nurse has several notes in her personnel file that reflect potential client abuse. You and the nurse manager both have concerns that this sentinel event must be investigated. Later in the day, the Chief Nursing Officer asks you to speak to new nurse managers to share attributes of leadership with the plan of enhancing their leadership skills. You see an opportunity to combine the situation of the client with a bad outcome, due to the alleged influence of one of the nurses, while building information to share this real-life situation with new nurse leaders. Instructions As a follow up to the investigation of the client’s unexpected death, generate an internal memo to your managers to reflect leadership and management attributes and include steps taken to investigate this unfortunate situation. As you create this memo, keep in mind that you should include: At least five leadership and/or management attributes for nurse leaders, as well as how they can improve client outcomes. Steps you would take to ensure the collection of data regarding this incident. Describe how transformational leadership style may influence the process of investigating this professional nurse colleague that reports to one of your unit managers. Provides stated ideas with professional language and attribution for credible sources with correct APA citation, spelling, and grammar.

Provide a justification for subject selection and sampling procedure.

You are designing an executable population-based change project addressing identified practice-related problems or questions. This strongly emphasizes collaboration between advanced practice nurses and community agencies and includes working with an agency using practice data to provide answers, which are responsive to the needs of clinicians, administrators, and policy makers for improvement of programs or practices.
This section of the change project should include a discussion of key concepts.
Clarify the issue under study.
Propose solutions or interventions based on the literature review.
Compare other views on the problem and solutions.
Address the APRN role in the intervention and discuss implications for clinical practice.
Discuss the implications of your change project.
Some important things to consider and address:
Does your intervention have a clear connection to your research problem?
What are the specific methods of data collection you are going to use, such as surveys, interviews, questionnaires, or protocols?
How do you intend to analyze your results?
Provide a justification for subject selection and sampling procedure.
Describe potential limitations. Are there any practical limitations that could affect your data collection? How will you attempt to control the limitations?
How will your change project help fill gaps in understanding the research problem?
This section should be 6–7 pages in length, not including the cover or reference page. You must reference a minimum of 5 scholarly articles.
Use current APA format to style your paper and to cite your sources. Review the rubric for more information on how the assignment will be graded.

Present the framework guiding your study.

The theoretical framework is a critical element of your work. A theoretical framework is the general representation of relationships in your problem and is based on existing theory. The conceptual framework is your idea on how the problem should be explored, and it is generally based on a theory. The difference between the two is the scope. Theory is broad; concept is narrow.
In most research studies, your framework can be either theoretical or conceptual in nature. For the purposes of this project, you will most likely follow a conceptual framework, which is your idea on how the research problem will be explored (although you could have both).
For example:
Theoretical framework: Stimulus is applied to elicit a response
Conceptual framework: A new teaching method is applied to elicit improvement in midterm test scores.
In this section of your change project paper, state the perspective through which the problem and/or phenomenon may be explored, and include the following:
Select a minimum of two theories.
Identify the process and logic in selecting these theoretical frameworks or conceptual frameworks for your study.
Discuss how each theory or model applies to the individual project. 
Present the framework guiding your study.
Describe the assumptions of the framework.
Describe each key component of the framework.
Discuss how each element of the phenomenon applies to the framework.
Apply each element of the theory to the elements of the phenomenon under study.
Develop the rationale for the sample selection criteria.
Discuss, analyze, and critique pertinent research that uses the framework.
Remember that research never proves theory. Your research project can only support or refute the theoretical propositions you are using as your framework. But if you do not use theory or conceptual frameworks in your research, you may not be able to put your findings in a context that could strengthen the nursing education profession!
This section should be 3–4 pages in length, not including the cover or reference page. You must reference a minimum of 3 scholarly articles.

The nclex-rn (for registered nurses) and the nclex-pn (for practical/vocational nurses) are examinations prepared by the national council of state boards of nursing (ncsbn), whose mandate is to protect the public from unsafe nursing care.

NCLEX stands for National Council Licensing Examination. It is a test to determine if the candidate possesses the minimum level of knowledge necessary to perform safe and effective entry-level nursing care. The NCLEX-RN (for registered nurses) and the NCLEX-PN (for practical/vocational nurses) are examinations prepared by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), whose mandate is to protect the public from unsafe nursing care. The NCSBN members include nursing regulatory bodies in the 50 states of the US, the District of Columbia, and four US territories.  Describe the 6 steps to register for the NCLEX?
