After the DNP Project Team members agree, the student may move onto the FINAL defense. For slide development, Students should follow the 7X7 Rule for developing slides – the rule states that a PPT slide (or any other electronic slide) should have no more than 7 lines (bullets) of text and no more than 7 words in each of these lines/bullets and utilize at least a 20-point font. The Titles/Headings for each slide will require larger font.

This formal presentation would utilize a PPT format and the student would present the following slides:
1. Title Slide: Title of the DNP, including the presenter’s name, department, program of study, and date.
2. DNP Project Team and Other Acknowledgments: Include the names of the DNP advisor and DNP Project Team members. Presenters should speak briefly about the contributions of each to the success of the work. It is appropriate to acknowledge the spouse, significant other, family members, friends and others who have lent support. Presenters may describe to the attendees why they chose their project and what informed that decision: attendees are naturally curious about how project implementers arrived at their topics.
3. Introduction and Overview of the Problem: Provide a succinct introduction of your project topic and project itself.
4. Evidence-based Practice Model Driving Project: Provide the EBP Model/Framework to guide your project.
5. Spirit of Inquiry: Issue Identified: Discuss the identified issue.
6. Understanding the Background: Provide a succinct overview and background of your problem. Include a brief statement that draws your audience’s attention to a particular critical situation revealed in the scholarship. Presenters are encouraged to incorporate several slides that reflect statistics, data and information about the problem. Elements of the background within the setting and from foundational background literature should be included to provide a viable framework that stands as evidence that critical experts in a given field concur that there is merit in conducting the project, which fills a particular need for increased scholarship.
7. Specifics of the Clinical Problem: Discuss the specifics of the clinical problem at the immersion site.
8. Problem Statement: Discuss the problem statement.
9. Significance of the Problem: Presenters should address the importance of the project to a wide pantheon of shareholders, from those most invested as beneficiaries to those least. This segment of the presentation focuses on the wider applications of the project to the community at large.
10. Purpose Statement: The purpose logically flows from the literature review and problem statement and is developed using the components of your project question. After reading the purpose statement the reader should be able to understand your intent to address the research question by aligning the purpose of your project with the problem or issue of concern. Present a declarative statement: “The purpose of this practice change/evidence-based practice project is…” which also identifies the methodology selected. The purpose includes a description of the target population and the general geographic location of the study. The nature of the phenomena to be explored is also described. The purpose statement is approximately one page in length. — Purpose to identify best practices and quality improvement strategies.

16. Search Strategies: Discuss the literature review methods, databases, limitations, Boolean terms, etc. Discuss the number of articles produced initially and what this was narrowed down to for selection.
17. Evaluation, Appraisal, and Synthesis of the Body of Evidence: Include a narrative of what is discussed. Use tables and a narrative. Include a description of the appraisal, evaluation, and synthesis (Include the Level and Quality of articles and what data showed – use templates). Ensure there is an appraisal, evaluation, and synthesis of the evidence (use Tables and Narrative). Be sure to include:
• How many articles you appraised
• What appraisal tools you utilized to appraise
• Provide the tables utilized (evaluation/summary table and synthesis tables
• Provide updated sources serving as evidence to support intervention and design
18. Summary of the Body of Evidence Findings: Provide a summary of the body of evidence findings to support your project implementation from start to finish
19. Limitations Initially Identified from the Search Process: Discuss any limitations found as a result of the literature review.
20. Framework/Theory Leading the Project/Intervention: Discuss the framework/theory leading the project/intervention.
21. Evidence-based Practice Change Model: Provide the EBP change model to drive the change project.
22. Pre-Implementation Planning:
• Project Setting
• Leadership, Project Management, and QI Strategies and Frameworks
• Organizational/Environmental Assessment of Readiness for Change
• Interdisciplinary Collaboration/Team Development
• Stakeholder Engagement
• Risk Management Assessment and Strategies to Overcome Barriers
23. Pre-Implementation Planning:

• Data Analysis
• Ethical Considerations
25. Applicable DNP Essentials for Proposed Project: Provide the applicable DNP Essentials that will be met for the proposed project.
26. Summary of Project Analysis
27. Anticipated Outcomes
28. Actual Outcomes: Discuss the results and outcomes (as well as Statistical and Clinical Significance). Slides should reflect graphs, tables or charts that demonstrate critical elements of the project findings or outcomes.
29. Implications for Nursing Practice: Report findings not reported by any other literature. Why should nursing leaders care? Meanings of any gaps or similarities to literature are critically analyzed and diced for every unusual finding. What do the findings mean to nurse leaders and would society care about the results?
30. Discussion of Findings and Best Practices
31. Plan for Dissemination
32. Plan for Sustaining Change
33. Recommendations for Future Projects and Practice: Recommendations for future research or projects: Provides an analysis of areas for future research or projects that the current study did not address and/or that emerged as a result of the current study. Discusses recommendations for future practice, policy, and education. Recommendations for future research should relate to the advancing scientific knowledge and/or significance of the study section discussed in Chapter 1. Recommendations for future practice: Provides specific recommendations for future practice based on the results and findings of the study, explaining who will benefit from reading and/or implementing the results of the study. Recommendations should expand on or relate to the significance of the study section from Chapter 1.
• Limitations: Discuss any identified limitations from your project. Generally, limitations emerge out of the project process or after the project has concluded and draw attention to these questions: “If I had to do this project again, in what way would it differ? Would another approach affect outcomes, and if so, how?”
• Strengths & Weaknesses: Discuss any strengths or weaknesses identified during or after project implementation and data analysis.
