Goals and Objectives for the NUR 4945C Advanced Nursing Concepts Practicum
Introduction
The NUR 4945C Advanced Nursing Concepts Practicum provides an opportunity for nursing students to apply knowledge and skills in a clinical setting. Well-defined goals and objectives help guide learning experiences and ensure a successful practicum. This paper will outline my proposed goals and objectives for the practicum.
Goals
My overarching goal for the practicum is to improve communication between nurses and families of COVID-19 patients. Effective family engagement is important for patient outcomes and satisfaction (Smith et al., 2018). Understaffing during the pandemic has made it challenging for nurses to keep families regularly updated (Jones et al., 2020).
Objectives
To achieve my communication goal, I have established the following objectives:
Observe the current process for nurse-family communication on the COVID-19 unit. This will involve tracking how many calls families make each day and the average response time before a nurse can speak to them (Jones et al., 2020).
Propose designating one family member as the primary contact for each patient. A literature review found this approach reduced unnecessary calls and ensured families received timely updates (Smith et al., 2018).
Implement the designated contact intervention for two weeks on the COVID-19 unit. Nurses will be responsible for calling the primary family member once per shift.
Evaluate the impact of the intervention by repeating the call tracking done initially. I aim to see a reduction in daily call volume and faster response times for families (Smith et al., 2018; Jones et al., 2020).
Discuss the results with my preceptor and instructor to determine if the intervention was successful or requires modification. Input from clinical experts will strengthen my learning.
Conclusion

Achieving these goals and objectives will allow me to complete a quality improvement project addressing real needs on the COVID-19 unit. Regular evaluation will ensure my intervention improves nurse-family communication as intended.
