DNP Projects

Recent DNP Projects

The DNP project is an important component of the DNP program of study.  Under the guidance of our faculty, students identify real or potential threats to positive health care outcomes within their clinical practices. They examine the evidence to documents the problem followed by analysis and critique of research to identify evidence-based solutions.  Our student projects outline a sustainable project or plan for clinical and agency application. 

With over 10 years of DNP student projects, the diversity of alumni scholarship is vast.  The list below is a random sampling of projects completed by our DNP alumni.   See also a more comprehensive list of DNP Alumni Projects.
