Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects

 
The clinical DNP Project is an opportunity to apply skills obtained in the theoretical coursework. The Project is intended to make an impact, directly or indirectly, on patient and/or healthcare outcomes. The DNP student identifies a clinical problem, evaluates the context of the problem, conducts a thorough review of literature, and translates evidence to formulate a potential solution or intervention. The intervention is then implemented and evaluated to determine what impact it had on the given clinical problem. The findings are then shared with stakeholders, other scholars, and the public.
