NURS 6600 Practicum Project Plan Overview

The Practicum Project Plan is a scholarly proposal for the project you will conduct at
your practicum site.

Project Planning Guidelines

As you proceed with your Practicum Project planning, keep in mind that approximately
half of your practicum hours may be spent on your project. The development of the
Practicum Project Plan does not count toward your practicum hours, and you may not
begin to earn practicum hours for your project until your proposal is approved.

Your actual Practicum Project must be completed by Day 5 of Week 11. Be sure to
develop your plan accordingly. Due to the limited time frame, your project should not
include surveys, focus groups, collection of data, or any activities that require
Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval.

In addition, remember that your Practicum Project goal and objectives are distinct from
the practicum professional development objectives you developed as part of your
Professional Experience Plan.

FormaAssignment: Practicum Project Plan
In scholarly writing, to synthesize means to bring various ideas and pieces of information together. In this “bringing together,” new comparisons are drawn and new meanings derived. Your Practicum Project Plan includes a synthesis of scholarly research justifying your project topic, as well as a formal plan for the implementation of your project and evaluation of your objectives. As such, the project plan offers the audience—including organizational stakeholders—clarity about what will take place and why.

For this Assignment, you anticipate the needs, questions, and concerns of your intended audience as you lay out your Practicum Project Plan.

Practicum Professional Development Objectives

1. By the end of 11 weeks, increase awareness of COVID-19 pandemic among hospital staff of Houston Methodist Hospital affecting its operations.

2. By the end of 11 weeks, Houston Methodist will identify the effects of COVID-19 to its budgeting process.

3. By the end of 11 weeks, the identified unit of Houston Methodist Hospital will identify the importance of teamwork in fight against COVID-19.

Journal Entry 1 (Week 3)

The pandemic of COVID-19 has affected most healthcare facilities’ operations with an inclusion of the Houston Methodist Hospital. The increase in the reported cases of the COVID-19 has led to the need for a social distance approach to preventing the spread of the disease. This, therefore, implies that limitation of the number of patients that require services that can be performed under a homecare basis, for instance, the hypertensive and the diabetes patients. This has also led to the floating of the staff to other units that demanded an additional number of staff. The rural healthcare facilities have been exposed to the financial blows, and the large healthcare system also experiences these effects due to the pressure from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Houston Methodist Healthcare facility is redeploying the workers with a reduction in the number of working hours and offering 70 percent of the base payment (Sasangohar et al., 2020).
One of the personal experiences concerning the effects of COVID-19 is fatigue. There is an overload on the healthcare system’s ability to respond to the pandemic. There is increased demand for the services to be provided by healthcare providers. At the same time, there is a redeployment of the employees to reduce the working hours, and this means that the remaining healthcare workers are being overwhelmed by the increased number of patients seeking healthcare services (Ortegon, 2020).
Despite the work overload, the morale in the working environment of this facility has been boosted. The Human Resource (HR) at the facility has developed a SharePoint Site that contains various toolkits that offer employees’ morale. The toolkit is composed of different activities; for example, workers are allowed to take a break to have fun and laughter; employees are reconnected with each other; there is an expression of the appreciation; the creativity of the workers are brought out; there is a change in the pace and taking of the breaks in between the working hours; and there is a celebration among each other when there is a success (Sasangohar et al., 2020).
Another experience is related to safety in the workplace, and this case, the hospital is prepared to provide the requirements equipment such as the mask, other Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), and the handwashing practices. The observation of the hand hygiene practice can be © 2020 Walden University 1
