Capstone Change Project Outcomes

NRS 493 capstone change project outcomes

After working with your preceptor to assess organizational policies, create a list of measurable outcomes for your capstone project intervention. Write a list of three to five outcomes for your proposed intervention. Below each outcome, provide a one or two sentence rationale.

  The capstone project intervention of multimodal strategies to reduce burnout in nurses has four measurable outcomes and they are as follows:

Outcome 1: reduced turnover ratio in health care

As more nurses will collaborate together and work towards reducing stress in the work environment, turnover ratio decreases as a smaller number of nurses will leave the job (Yao et al., 2018).

Outcome 2: increased nurse to patient ratio in health care

As more nurses are recruited to handle the burden and burnout in nurses, nurse to patient ratio will increase and thus, it will further increase quality care (Lahana et al., 2017).

Outcome 3: reduced health care errors 

NRS 493 capstone change project outcomes

As number of patients per nurses will be less, then the nurses will have time to manage everything without stress and fatigue, health care errors will be less (Magtibay et al., 2017). 

Outcome 4: reduced burnout in nurses

The stress management, self-efficacy, and support will reduce burnout in nurses as burden sharing, quality interprofessional collaboration, and high nurse to patient ratio will be beneficial (Rees et al., 2019).
