The online DNP program culminates in a final project, which highlights a learner’s synthesis of course material, research, and clinical learning — and lays the groundwork for a learner’s future practice and scholarship in the field.
As a learner, you will develop your DNP project over the course of three terms in a DNP Project Seminar. Throughout your DNP project, you will be able to directly apply your newfound knowledge to your clinical work.
The final project can take a variety of forms, such as a practice portfolio, a research utilization project, or even a practice topic dissemination.
Below are three examples of DNP projects Simmons graduates have completed in the past:
“Survivorship Care Plans: Exploring Lymphoma Patients”
“Perceptions of Clinical Nurses About Professional Development”
“Nurse Leaders: Levels of Resilience”
