This is a must for any DNP student completing a capstone project in clinical research. It can be a course text or an excellent resource for the student. It also would be an excellent resource for anyone completing a project for evidence-based practice.
The book begins with an introduction to DNP programs and the rationale for a capstone project. It then goes though the basic research steps of completing the project and includes chapters on dissemination of and critiquing research.
The focus primarily is on what DNP students need to know. Each chapter includes learning enhancement tools, which are a series of questions for applying the information in the chapter. Websites, other resources, a glossary, and references are also included. Three appendixes present actual projects which are excellent examples to show students what a project entails.
