The student will complete all the information on the electronic Immersion Plan form and submit to their faculty advisor.
The student’s faculty advisor reviews and approves the electronic draft Immersion Plan via electronic signature and returns to the student. If any recommendations for refinement to the proposed Immersion Plan are determined by the faculty advisor, it is the students responsibilities to make those updates and get final advisor approval.
The student uploads an electronic copy of the signed Immersion Plan into Typhon as soon as they receive the copy back from their faculty advisor. Students enrolled in 8898.01 and 8898.02 must complete this step by the second Friday of the semester.
The student also needs to provide their site location(s), preceptor name(s) and email addresses to the Clinical Placement Office at CON-ClinicalPlacement@osu.edu Clinical placement will verify that appropriate paperwork is on file and matches information on the Immersion Plan form in Typhon. Clinical Placement will upload preceptor CVs/forms, preceptor agreements and agency agreements into Typhon as these documents are received.
Immersion Plans may undergo development as the student progresses. Any substantive changes should be incorporated into the Immersion Plan, reviewed and approved by the faculty advisor. Revised Immersion Plans must be uploaded into Typhon and the Clinical Placement office should be notified of any preceptor/clinical site changes.
The Immersion plan should assure that students with an indirect patient care focus demonstrate the following abilities at the end of the experience:
Define actual and emerging problems.
Conduct comprehensive organizational, systems, and/or community assessments to identify health or system needs.
Design aggregate level health interventions.
Demonstrate an expert level of understanding of nursing and related biological, behavioral and other related sciences.
Create effective partnerships with diverse stakeholders for achieving health-related organizational or public policy goals.
Design patient-centered or population-focused care delivery systems or policy level delivery models.
