Guidelines with Scoring Rubric
The capstone project focuses on a problem or issue identified during the education practicum experience and suggests an evidence-based solution to the identified problem or concern. Your capstone project should be an issue related to a nursing education issue and should not be a clinical paper, because you are working on an educational rather than a clinical degree. Your mentor will help you identify an issue within his or her workplace that could be developed into a capstone paper.

The capstone project focus topic should provide sufficient depth and scope to integrate evidence-based practice, multidisciplinary theory and advanced nursing practice concepts into areas specifically related to the role of the nurse educator.
