NURS 8302 Assignment Applying Project Management

Approaches for a Quality Improvement
Practice Gap
Project management allows for a clear and focused workflow to approach an issue or
task. These approaches streamline a process, allow for checks and balances, and ensure
all stakeholders are active participants in the process. Project management approaches
often utilize SMART objectives to define and set the objectives for the project.

Each letter of the acronym SMART defines a different criterion for the objective. A SMART
objective is specific, measurable, assignable, realistic, and timely. These objectives help to steer
the work and direct the stakeholders to the completion of the project.
For this Assignment, you will reflect on project management approaches that could be used to
address a quality improvement practice gap. You will develop SMART objectives for the
planning and execution of a quality improvement project, and will consider potential project
management approaches or activities that could be used in executing this project.
To Prepare:
 Review the Learning Resources for this week, and consider the approaches of project
management.
 Refer to the Week 3 Discussion, and reflect on the quality improvement practice gap you
identified.
 Consider how you might apply the project management approaches examined this week
to address the quality improvement practice gap you identified.
 Think about how you might develop SMART objectives for the planning and execution
of a project to address the quality improvement practice gap you identified.
 Consider any other project management approaches or activities you might recommend
using for your project that will address the quality improvement practice gap you
identified.
The Assignment: (2–3 pages)
 Briefly describe the quality improvement practice gap you identified in your nursing
practice or organization. Be specific.
 Develop at least two SMART objectives you might apply in the project planning phase or
execution phase to address the quality improvement practice gap you identified.

 Recommend at least two project management activities you would use for your project,
addressing the quality improvement practice gap you identified. Explain your
justification for why these activities would provide the best support. Be specific and
provide examples.
