Programs: DNP Doctoral Project

DNP Doctoral Project Resources


To prepare for the form and style review, we recommend using the following checklist, which is the same checklist we use when we review capstone manuscripts and the checklist we return to the student and committee along with the completed review.

About the DNP Doctoral Project

A DNP doctoral project is a formal manuscript written to address a problem in nursing practice. Walden DNP doctoral projects consist of five sections.

You can access the Center for Research Quality website for information on the process, checklists, and rubrics for the capstone project, and you can also access samples of published dissertations through the Walden Library. If you have writing or APA questions for the proposal or final capstone project, contact editor@waldenu.edu.
