N555PE: MSN Capstone (All Specializations)

This course is the culminating experience for the graduate nursing student as an emerging scholar within their chosen specialization track. The student completes an analysis of an institutional need regarding their chosen population to develop and implement a final capstone project that is evidence-based and meets or exceeds applicable accreditation standards. Through synthesis and analysis of emerging trends in health care the student plans for, designs, implements, and evaluates an evidence-based project applicable to the chosen MSN specialization track. Self-assessment of achievement of course and program outcomes as a foundation for life-long learning are demonstrated in an electronic portfolio. This course includes 130 hours of practice experience activities.

Should your capstone project require statistical analysis, SPSS is a suggested software and can be purchased for an estimated price of $42-$66.

This course has an assignment monitored through ProctorU. There is no fee for this service, but you will need a webcam that works through your laptop or on your desktop.

Prerequisites: All MSN Core and Specialization Courses
