Requirements and Guidelines

1. Review the Course Outcomes for this assignment, which are listed above.

2. Review the guidelines for Milestones 1, 2, and 3, paying particular attention to Milestone 1. The guidelines for all of the Milestones are located in Doc Sharing. Also, read the Course Project area on your eCollege screen for more details. Pay special attention to the Tips for Successful Course Projects.

3. Identify a potential interviewee who has been living in a culture other than the one of origin for at least the past 3–5 years. The interviewee could be a patient, friend, or colleague, such as a physician or acquaintance, but cannot be a relative. The interviewee must be living in your community and must be currently receiving or have previously received healthcare services in your community. The individual’s race, ethnicity, language, religion, and culturally based beliefs about healthcare and illness should be quite different from yours. The interviewee must speak your language. An interpreter is not permitted for the actual interview, which occurs in Milestone 3 (Week 6).

4. Interviewees can come from a variety of settings. Recent immigrants, migrant workers, refugees, coworkers, physicians, patients, and individuals who have recently moved to your community are some suggestions. Ideally, this individual was not born in the United States and his/her culture of origin is significantly different from yours. Work with your instructor prior to submitting Milestone 1. Approval must be provided by your instructor before submitting Milestone 1 (this assignment).

5. Speak with the individual and obtain permission to conduct an interview later in the course. Clearly explain that statements made in the interview will be recorded (written) and submitted to the instructor only. It is not intended for public access. Anonymity will be maintained by using first and last initials only. Do not use names in any of your documents.

6. Download the NR391_Interviewee_Profile_Form from Doc Sharing. Although you are not conducting the official interview until Milestone 3, it will be necessary to obtain some general information about your interviewee to complete Milestone 1. This information may come from the individual or Internet sources.

7. Fill in information about the potential interviewee using the form. This does not require APA formatting, but you are expected to write clearly and use proper grammar and spelling.

8. Submit the completed form to the Milestone 1 Dropbox by the end of Week 3 at 11:59 p.m. MT.
