Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects
The Online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at USA prepares nurse practitioners and graduates with additional roles in the profession to provide advanced nursing care for individuals and communities, to address the major issues of healthcare, to research theoretical issues and transform research into quality care, to fill leadership roles and teach future nurses and nurse practitioners.
Every DNP student completes a major project that translates evidence into practice. Projects can be designed to achieve an evidence-based, quality improvement systems change in a clinical setting. Students work with a faculty advisor from South and a preceptor or mentor at their clinical site. All projects must seek to improve patient outcomes and all are designed to improve healthcare at a local, regional, national or global level.
