All Jefferson College of Nursing Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students are expected to complete a Practice Inquiry Project (PIP). The PIP is a faculty-guided scholarly process to address a theoretically and clinically relevant problem. The PIP provides evidence of the student’s practice inquiry knowledge and skills and her/his ability to apply research, clinical practice and leadership principles through problem identification, proposal development, implementation, and evaluation of a problem related to clinical practice, the health care delivery system, or a health care policy issue."
