Nurse Burnout Education and Evaluation Plan


Teaching Plan

The purpose of this plan is to educate nurses and nursing students about the prevalence and impact of nurse burnout.  The target group will be nurses of all ethnicities who work in the healthcare facility. The learners will not be discriminated on the bases of age, years of experience, gender or ethnicity. They all need to be informed of evidence-based knowledge regarding the effects of nurse burnout and ways of solving the issues. Through that, the learners will gain an understanding of the topic and choose the solutions they would prefer for their organization.

The learning will take place in my Livingroom.  Some nurses work during the day while others work during the night. So, I will try to get two different sessions.  The lesson will be conducted during nonworking hours.   The learners will receive face to face learning. Discussion method will be used as the teaching method.  Some of the equipment that will be needed is a laptop, a projector, internet, and brochures. Projecting images and use of brochures will make the learning more interesting. The learners will be required to switch off their phones or put them in silent mode. The chosen room is free from external noise.                                                                 Appendix A, B, C, and D contain more information regarding this topic. They are situated after the references.
