Other Requirements

DNP Project

Students will be required to complete a DNP Project which represents the cumulating work for their DNP program. The project is expected to be a tangible academic product that reflects the student’s educational experiences and should be evaluated by an academic committee.  The DNP Project for the DePaul DNP students (NSG 600NSG 601, and NSG 602) will include: 1) a needs assessment of an aggregate population, APN practice setting, healthcare institution policies, or healthcare delivery models using an Evidence Based Practice approach; 2) development, and implementation of  a program to improve the health of a population,  change practice, influence health policy, or revise healthcare delivery models; 3) evaluation of the program; and 4) oral presentation of outcomes and submission of publishable manuscript.​ A poster representing the DNP Project will be produced by the student for presentation at the Grace Peterson Research Colloquium.
