Individual Project:SCHOLARLY AESTHETIC APPRECIATION PROJECTGuidelines:The purpose of this project is to facilitate an integrated understanding of caring as foundational toadvanced nursing practice. This project is intended to be an expression of aesthetic understandingof caring in nursing, integrating lived experience with an artful communication of a synthesizedmeaning of caring in your nursing situation (as nurse leaders and managers).Overview of the Project: You will create an aesthetic project that clearly reflects the central caring essence in relation toyour nursing leadership and management and attributes of your scholarly paper. The projectmust be completed with your two hands especially for this project, and presented to the class inbefore the schedule for final examinations.Process: Step 1: Reflect on your nursing situation (as nurse leaders and managers) and on the caringessence, and create an aesthetic re-presentation of the caring lived between you and the one nursed.Aesthetic representations may take any form except those noted below; examples that are great tochoose from include creations such as pottery, song, poetry, dance, needle-work, painting,sculpture, etc.Step 2: Create a 150-word abstract (an approximately one-page synopsis – formatted in APA) thatdescribes your aesthetic project – what it actually is and why you chose this particular medium ofexpression, what is the meaning in it for you, what do all the details of your creation represent? Itmust be sufficient to convey your growing in understanding and caring during the process ofcreation. As usual, create a title page with the following page being your abstract. There is noreferences page required – you are the reference:-)Step 3: Create your project! Think about your special talents and abilities and use them to createa unique expression of your caring in nursing.Please note: Collages from magazine articles and posters are NOT permitted, nor are electronicpaintings, graphics, or PowerPoint presentations. The idea is for you to express yourself throughdirect tactile ways. The aesthetic representation must be your original work, not work done byothers, and must be created for this course. It must not be a revision of a project created for anothercourse. You will present your project in person in your group, and we will try to set up a Skypecall (fingers crossed it will be successful). If that doesn’t work, you will make short 3-minute videoof your project and upload into Blackboard. This is an opportunity to allow yourself to be creative,to express your sense of caring in nursing in perhaps unfamiliar ways…remember that courage,trust and humility are ingredients of caring! Your project must be capable of being keptpermanently.Step 4: Staging and Presentation of your Project:If you create a poem, picture, or other written work, you must artistically imprint it on paper orother medium and frame it or present it in artistic ways, paying particular attention to the reasonfor your choice of paper and special frame. Merely imprinting your poem over a watermark orphoto background and then uploading does not answer to the entirety of the process (and will notearn you full points). Instead, consider how the frame further expresses your caring. Make surethat your project is titled. The idea of this project is for it to be a permanent creation: Your projectcan be cherished and handed down to your family as a keepsake of your expert nursing caring. Justthink, your great, great, great grandchildren might one day hold your project in their hands!Evaluation Criteria: Scholarly Aesthetic Project
