DNP Clinical Scholarship Project
All students must satisfactorily demonstrate the ability to integrate the knowledge acquired in the DNP program in a scholarly manner. Application of theoretical, research, and measurement will be demonstrated in the completion of a DNP clinical scholarship project. DNP projects are expected to be completed at the system level and implementation of an organizational change is required. Evaluation is based on application, as well as both written and oral performance.

Note: To receive a DNP degree students must have documented 1000 total post-baccalaureate clinical/practicum hours. A minimum of 400 clinical hours will be completed as part of the Clinical Scholarship courses. Students who require additional hours to meet this minimum requirement will develop a written plan with their faculty advisor to facilitate completion of necessary hours.
