    DNP Scholarly Project II

    This seminar-formatted course is the second of a four-course series designed to assist students in implementing an evidence based practice (EBP) project. This course will build upon work completed in the first course, with the focus on project management, evaluation methods, completion of an EBP project proposal and hearing, and the submission of an IRB application. Students will continue in their completion of 400 hours of mentored experience from the inception of the EBP project to dissemination of the findings.
  • NU-742

    DNP Scholarly Project III

    This seminar-formatted course is the third of a four-course series designed to assist students in implementing an evidence-based practice (EBP) project. The focus of this course is on the implementation of the evidence-based practice project completed in NU 741 Scholarly DNP Project II and subsequent collection of data for evaluation of the project. Students will continue in their completion of 400 hours of mentored experience from the inception of the EBP project to dissemination of the findings.
  • NU-743

    DNP Scholarly Project IV

    This seminar-formatted course is the fourth of a four-course series designed to assist students in completing an evidence-based practice (EBP) project. The focus of this course is on analyzing data obtained from the evaluation process and dissemination of the project findings. Students must successfully defend their project orally as well as submit an article to disseminate their EBP project findings and will have completed the 400 hours of mentored experience in this course publication or abstract for professional presentation and an executive summary.
