The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) projects are evidence-based Quality Improvement (QI) projects that translate current evidence into practice at the patient level and community level. DNP projects are practice-focused and are responsive to the needs of the patient, clinical sites, and community. DNP educated Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) are change agents and will provide the highest quality of care by designing, implementing, and evaluating continuous quality improvement!
