Practice Setting: Identify a practice setting that you could potentially utilize for your DNP Project. Take time to discuss current issues and problems at the site. Find an issue that interests you that you could address utilizing current evidence from the literature. Assess organizational buy in to addressing the issue through interviewing various stakeholders. *** If you are able to identify a current issue that would have organizational buy-in and can be addressed with current evidence (not research of discovery) then this practice site may be a viable option for the DNP Project.
Topic: Identify the proposed project topic.
Current Practice: Identify what is currently being done at the practice site to address the identified issue. Is there a protocol or practice guideline in place to guide practice? If so, is it up to date with current evidence? Will your project contribute to improving practice through current evidence? Is there significant financial burden involved with your proposal? (High cost projects often take years to approve so they don’t work well in DNP Projects)
