NUR 578 - DNP Practicum III
- NUR 576, NUR 577
- This course builds on DNP Practicum II and is usually completed over three semesters. Application and integration of knowledge gained through foundational coursework framed by the DNP Essentials continues with the implementation of a scholarly capstone project over several semesters in an identified area of practice which has the potential to optimize healthcare system functioning or care delivery. Students are guided through implementation of theoretically-based, methodologically-sound initiatives which improve practice and/or patient care. Following completion of this course, students will be prepared to defend their final capstone project as well as disseminate project findings.
