Looking for some advice from DNPs

Hey guys,

I'm currently a second year DNP student. I've posted on here before, and got some pretty good advice regarding how to go about a DNP project from the time of acceptance to the program. Currently, I'm in somewhat of a situation as my project site contacted me pretty late into the game and told me that there was too much administrative issues to continue doing the project there. Of course, with our current pandemic in mind, it's somewhat difficult to find a site at the moment. I'm moreso looking for advice on how to find a DNP project site when you've exhausted a good amount of options. I have tried my workplace and friends with healthcare contacts. Of course my program is helping, however it seems as if the brunt of the work in terms of finding a project site is on the student. I'll certainly direct message anybody on here if needed. Just throwing out a "wide net" so to speak.

I wish I could tell you what you should do... most of my cohort had started their projects in January, and some students in my program had started earlier. So I have a few weeks of good data collection... I and most are just continuing as best we can depending our project site and faculty... I am doing the rest of my hours from home... as my facility will not allow me to stay in house to do hours. Part of my project was giving forms to patients, and that can't be done anymore since, they have implemented telehealth. It is all situation based...

I have no idea how you would start in the middle of this. Maybe find a provider that is doing telehealth and see what they need done?
