Nursing Practice Capstone
The capstone experience is an academic activity in which the student demonstrates the knowledge, skills, and attitudes attained during the MSN program. It goes beyond required coursework and is completed by the end of the program. The capstone allows the student to develop a project which addresses a problem in their specialization area. The project is developed in the practicum course and defended in the capstone course.
