This guide is designed for DNP students working on their DNP Project.  It has information on recommended databases, e-books, and more.

"The DNP evidence-based practice project reflects the culmination of a student’s academic work for the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree and should demonstrate the student’s ability to organize, analyze, and synthesize a body of knowledge. The DNP Project is a student driven, faculty-guided scholarly experience completed in the final semesters of the student’s program. This culminating experience provides evidence of the student’s critical thinking and ability to translate evidence into practice through problem identification, proposal development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination. The DNP project encompasses the synthesis of both coursework and practice application and results in deliverable products (DNP poster presentation and final manuscript) reviewed and evaluated by the faculty mentor and other expert members of the DNP Project Team (e.g., practice mentor, agency partner facilitator). Final evaluation of the DNP project is the responsibility of the faculty overseeing the project."
