Nursing Student Projects
Dartmouth-Hitchcock supports the educational pursuits of all nurses and believes its locations offer the preferred regional setting for undergraduate and graduate nursing evidence-based practice projects and practicums.
A Nursing Student Project is a unique body of work as defined by a school of nursing (or other program) that needs to be completed as part of a capstone or practicum, whether or not the student is in a clinical placement experience.
Nursing Student Projects may include, but are not limited to:
- Educational evaluation
- Evidence-based practice
- Quality improvement
- Patient safety
- Scholarly projects not listed above
The Center for Nursing Excellence is responsible for overseeing all nursing student projects. This includes:
- All nursing student projects conducted by Dartmouth-Hitchcock employees.
- All nursing student projects conducted by non-D-H employees at a D-H location.
- Both undergraduate and graduate student nurses must coordinate their project work through the Center for Nursing Excellence.
