SMART Goals
Developing sound goals is critical to managing your own performance at school or work. Develop 5 goals and use each letter of SMART to verify that you wrote an SMART goal. The goals can be professional, academic, or personal. Here is an example of an academic SMART goal:
I will master psychomotor skills in dressing changes, catheterizations, and medication administration by the end of term Spring 1-2021.
Note that the goal needs to start with: “I will… (do something) and ends with a date (completion).
Assignment:
a) You will need to develop 5 goals: Goals can be academic goals, personal goals, professional goals or a combination of all.
b) After you write your goal (see example below): Use each letter of SMART to explain each of your goals.
c) No APA format required; just type the goals using Word-save them and post them on Canvas under Assignments on the corresponding heading/tab: Professional Goals.
