The DNP degree supports the nurse’s ability to take evidence-based practice from the review of the literature and apply it in practice to advance care delivery, healthcare systems, nursing education, policy development or nursing practice. The DNP project reflects the culmination of this degree and this book will guide the DNP student from the choice of a topical project to the final presentation. Guidance is provided on general but critical topics such as working with your professor and choosing a mentor. 12 successful project exemplars are included by recent DNP graduates in leadership, education, and clinical and policy development. Strategies are offered on how to overcome barriers with a review of the literature, narrowing the topic, getting through the institutional review board, data analysis, developing and working from an outline for a project, and dissemination of findings.
