The culmination of the practice doctorate is the successful completion of the DNP Project that demonstrates the synthesis of the student’s experiences. The DNP project will be reviewed and evaluated by a faculty chair and the doctoral academic affairs committee. The chair will be a member of the University of Louisville School of Nursing faculty with doctoral preparation and who has experience relevant to the student’s topic of interest. Successful completion of the DNP project demonstrates the synthesis of the student’s coursework and practice application and culminates in a final manuscript and public presentation.
