The COVID-19 pandemic imposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) since March 2020 has not changed its status to date (World Health Organization, 2020). COVID-19 is easily spread through direct contact. This condition causes the government in a number of countries to cancel activities that allow the gathering of many people in one particular place, including in the education sector by limiting learning activities at schools or universities (International Labor Organization, 2020; UNESCO, 2020). This limitation also occurs at the professional stage of learning. Since the beginning of the pandemic, several hospitals have reported positive confirmed cases of COVID-19 that they are treating, so they cancelled their permission to include students in clinical learning involving the hospital. This continues to occur as the spread of COVID-19 infection increases.

Joint Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture, Minister of Religion, Minister of Health, Minister of Home Affairs, Number 04 / KB / 2020, Number 737 of 2020, Number HK.01.08 / Menkes / 7093/2020, Number 420-3987 of 2020 concerning Guidelines for Learning Implementation In the Academic Year 2020/2021 and Academic Year 2020/2021 during the Pandemic, Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) states that granting permission to educational units to conduct face-to-face learning outside the educational unit environment while still applying health protocols. Therefore, the implementation of the nurses’ professional practice and physiotherapy needs to be prepared before students participate in professional programs in the era of adapting to new habits.
