Abstract:

Session presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013

In October 2004,  “AACN member institutions voted to move the current level of preparation necessary for advanced nursing practice from the master's degree to the doctorate level by the year 2015”(AACN 2004).  This project considers the importance of developing an educational resource handbook for faculty serving as DNP committee chairs and members. 

As DNP programs began to evolve there were very diverse requirements for the capstone scholarly project and it became necessary to have clinically prepared faculty to support doctorate education.  In developing a DNP capstone project competency standards must be understood by all faculty participating in the educational process. This necessitates bringing together faculty grounded in research methodology with faculty whose scholarship developed from clinical practice. New DNP programs require the development of faculty with the ability to adapt to a new culture of doctoral level education, (Mundinger, Starck, Hathaway, Shaver, & Woods, 2009).  

In the development of a DNP programs, it is necessary to develop a “shared vision among faculty” for the capstone project. Standardization of expectations for clinical projects would provide rigor and comparability between projects both within and between educational institutions, (Mundinger, et al., 2009). Of 106 DNP programs over 40 published practices were reviewed and analyzed for published practices related to the DNP scholarly capstone project.  Rubrics for use with doctoral clinical projects were developed. The rubrics have been tested for interrater reliability.

Additionally a model has been developed for DNP clinical projects.
