· Modified windshield survey data collection – gather local community data by physically looking at your community

· If possible, plan on asking someone to drive during your survey so that you can take notes.

· Your community should be the area where you live or the area surrounding your work. The community must include a residential area and be a large enough area to answer the survey questions. If you live in a large area, you may choose a suburb.

· Note: It is helpful to conduct this portion of the assessment at least two different times: during the day or evening, on a weekday, and/or on the weekend.

5. Identify a nursing problem (nursing diagnosis) based on data and observations

· You must select a problem caused by your topic

· Important: the problem you identify will be utilized in Parts 2, 3, and 4 of the project.
