Abstract:The purpose of this Doctor of Nursing Practice project was to implement an evidence-based staff focused exercise and wellness program among healthcare staff working at the Veterans Affair inpatient unit. Nearly 15 million Americans work full time on evening shift, night shift, rotating shifts, or other employer arranged irregular schedules. This deviated work schedule affects the body’s natural circadian rhythm and can lead to inadequate sleep. Over time, chronic short sleep has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, obesity, hypertension, and lower motor/cognition function. The data collection method includes pre-evaluation BMI measurements, a 10-week 10,000 steps a day exercise program, and post-evaluation BMI measurements. Pre-evaluation BMI among 11 staff members were obtained with an average measurement of 30.74. At the end of 10 weeks, all staff members had a decrease in weight ranging from 1 pound to 14.7 pounds. The average post BMI was 29.83.
