As part of the learning curriculum in the DNP program at Wake Forest School of Medicine, each doctoral student is challenged to create and present a project that highlights concerns and changes in healthcare and how they could help solve them.

The DNP Project Repository contains examples of the exemplary work completed by doctoral graduates. Evidence-based practice and quality improvement projects that impact patient care are highlighted in this repository.
