Doctor of Nursing Practice Translational Research and Clinical Project

The DNP program includes a Translational Research and Clinical Project, which provides an opportunity for the student to apply advanced theoretical, policy, and specialty knowledge and skills in clinical practice and systems level experiences. During the project, the student must demonstrate the ability to employ effective communication and collaboration skills to influence healthcare quality and safety, and negotiate successful change in care delivery processes for individuals, groups, or populations across a broad spectrum of healthcare delivery systems. Upon completion of the project, the student will demonstrate:   

1. Advanced clinical judgment, expertise, and specialization in a defined content area.

2. Advanced levels of systems thinking and accountability in designing, delivering, and evaluating evidence-based care to improve healthcare quality, safety, and outcomes.

3. Leadership in the development and implementation of patient-driven, institutional, local, state, federal, and/or international health policy in a select content/specialty area.

Each applicant has the responsibility to propose a Translational Research and Clinical Project that meets their individual needs and career goals during the application process. It is expected that students will focus on clinical problems and/or organizational systems to promote effective, efficient, and accessible care for individuals, groups, or populations.
