A well-written clinical project proposal has become an expected form of communication for any individual in the APN field. The only resource of its kind, this is a practical guide for MSN project students, DNP capstone students, and advanced practice clinicians who must plan and organize their clinical projects into quality proposals. The book includes the requisite guidelines for synthesizing research and best evidence with clearly communicated professional objectives. It describes fundamental scholarly approaches required for professional communication and illustrates how they can support an array of clinical project topics. The book’s “how-to” approach helps to demystify the organization and packaging of advanced practice clinical projects into tight proposals.

The text is organized into three broad sections covering designing, writing, and communicating a project proposal. The first section addresses putting a clinical problem in context, including synthesizing relevant literature and placing a project within this body of scholarship. The next section concerns designing and setting the stage for the project as it flows from the purpose statement, using traditional research methods. The final section covers the fine points of writing the proposal, including visualizing the finished product and editing for concise, clear language.

The content includes prompts and questions that guide readers in reflective thinking to facilitate better writing and deeper understanding of their projects and subsequent proposals. Each chapter includes objectives, tips for making proposals concise yet complete, tools for self-assessment, key point summaries, reflective questions, and writing prompts. Additionally, the book provides plentiful checklists, five exercises that jump-start the process, examples of good writing, and resources for further study. Key Features:
