What is the DNP Capstone Project?

 DNP students will develop a theory-driven Scholarly Project that reflects on a phenomenon of interest in nursing and includes development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination components. The student works collaboratively with faculty and in partnership with health care organizations to implement and evaluate the results.

Through the Scholarly Project, students exhibit their advanced interpersonal and leadership skill development. This reflects the student’s ability to effectively and efficiently influence health care teams and systems for positive improvement to the delivery of patient care.
