The content of the project report is the responsibility of the DNP student and faculty mentor. The following documentation will be completed by the faculty mentor, practice partner, and program director to ensure successful completion of the written proposal and final written report.
The proposal for the DNP project must be written and approved no later than the completion of Nursing 867: Project II, and prior to project implementation. The faculty mentor is responsible to sign the DNP Written Proposal Evaluation (Appendix C) signifying that the written proposal has met the criteria for proceeding forward with the project. The student is responsible for sharing the written proposal with the practice partner and securing their agreement and support. If the faculty mentor does not believe the written proposal has met the evaluation criteria, a meeting with the DNP student, faculty mentor, and program chair will be held to formulate a plan for successful completion of the written proposal. Progression to Nursing 868: Project III is contingent upon successful approval of the written proposal.
Upon completion of the project, the faculty mentor, practice partner, and student will sign the DNP Final Written Report Evaluation (Appendix D). The project must be completed by the end of Nursing 872: Project V course. The program chair signature on the DNP Final Written Report Evaluation signifies successful completion of the DNP project as a requirement of the DNP program.
