Title:Assist. Director of DNP program
Contact Address:3455 SW Veteran's Rd., Portland, OR, 97239-2491, USA

Co-Authors:Mary Francis Drake Pate, DSN, Assistant Professor; Anne Rosenfeld, PhD, FAAN, Professor, Director of DNP Program, Associate Dean for Research
Purpose: A critical competency for Doctor of Nursing Practice program graduates is improvement of clinical care and health outcomes. The purpose of this paper is to describe how DNP students are prepared to conduct Clinical Inquiry Projects (CIPs) to bridge the gap between generation of knowledge and its translation into practice. Description: The development of the CIP begins early in the program with the research methods course which focuses on clinical research designs for quality improvement, program evaluation, and other types of relevant studies. Periodically students are asked to describe development and refinement of the project proposal. Information about the setting and population are acquired. An extensive literature review is done and an evidence table created. Students develop a framework for the study and write a proposal with guidance from faculty. A rubric is used to guide evaluation of proposals. A CIP Committee of two doctorally prepared faculty is required with the option of including a reader from the clinical agency. Intensive writing workshops assist students with IRB and plans for protection of human subjects, refinement of methods and statistical analyses. A systems analysis helps identify the stakeholders and the support needed for successful project implementation. Students develop project management plans with timelines to guide implementation. A financial analysis is completed. Students acquire further knowledge in a substantive area during a nine month clinical residency which is integrated in the CIP project. Collaboration with experts in various disciplines provides opportunities to develop the additional clinical expertise needed and infuses the projects with resources and support. Outcomes: Data collection, analysis and interpretation are completed within 4-5 months. The diverse projects have clear clinical impact, involving pediatric pain management, sexually assaulted women, care of returning females veterans, secondary prevention of heart disease and metabolic syndrome.  These projects are disseminated in a variety of forms to clinical agencies and professional colleagues. Conclusions: Commitment to improving practice and competence in using the tools needed to accomplish this are nurtured throughout the program. Consequently, we can expect DNP graduates to lead health care improvements.
