This project will certainly require some planning on your part prior to conducting the interview. You will want to begin working on this project in Unit 1 to ensure you have an adequate amount of time to meet your project deadlines.

First, conduct preliminary research to determine the field of healthcare that you would like to be the focus of your paper. Consider the area of healthcare that most interests you when deciding on your topic.

Next, you will need to begin seeking out professionals in this field. You will need to interview someone who is involved in direct patient care. This can be, but is not limited to, a RN, LPN, CNA, Technician or Therapist.

Examples of places to contact:

  • Veterans Affairs Health System
  • Skilled nursing facility
  • Assisted living facility
  • Multilevel residential center
  • Continuing care retirement community
  • Rehabilitation hospital
  • Schools that serves children with special health care needs

Be sure to identify yourself as an ECPI student during this process.

Do not conduct the interview in the first week. Your instructor must approve your interview proposal PRIOR to your interview.

Once your instructor has approved your interview proposal (you will submit this proposal in Unit 2), setup an appointment with the professional for the interview. You may conduct this interview over the phone or in-person. (If you are able to conduct this interview in-person it is recommended.) Make the professional aware that this interview may take up to two hours.

You will need to adequately prepare for this interview by writing a short script and a list of questions to ask this person. Your questions should be asked to promote the interviewee to talk about his or her work. Questions such as “Do you like your job?” will warrant a yes or no answer. However, questions such as “What do you like most about your job?” will provide you with more information. Ask follow up such as “Why?” when applicable. You will need to obtain as much information as possible from your interviewee so that you have an adequate amount of information to write your paper.

Use the questions below as a guide when conducting your interview. Please note that you must create additional questions for the interview.

  • Why did you choose this profession?
  • What do you like about your job?
  • What part of your job causes you frustration?
  • What is your greatest management challenge on a daily basis?
  • How often do you make decisions that involve ethics? How would you categorize those decisions?

The questions that you pose to the professional should relate to the information that you are learning in this course. Make sure that your interview does not exceed two hours.


Unit 2 - Interview Proposal Requirements

In Unit 2 you will submit a proposal to your instructor identifying:

  1. The field of healthcare
