    I work as an NP in an outpatient diabetes clinic. I do have some ideas of projects but am just wondering the types of projects others have done, so I can see if mine seems reasonable

    Your school should have all the projects that have been completed bound in the library, and you are likely invited to attend the defenses that are ongoing each semester. You can also read the published papers that have come from capstone projects. Check pubmed. I know mine can be found there, as well as those of most of my friends/colleagues. Most of my classmates did succeed in publishing their manuscripts. That should give you a good idea.

    Just finished my DNP project, "Sepsis: A Guide for Patients and Families". I wrote it as an ebook and donated it to the Sepsis Alliance. We'll see how the College of Nursing likes it.

    How cool! What kind of clinical did you do for this? What do you hope to do with your degree once you graduate?

    I also need a capstone project. I am currently in asthma, allergy and immunology but feel asthma stuff has been researched to death. I can't think of anything =(

    DNP is all about outcomes measurement and implementation of evidenced based practices. Pick a specific population and then implement an intervention to improve outcomes (medication adherence, asthma control, decrease in ER visits, etc). You could make a measurement before and after to prove your intervention worked. There are so many people with asthma that you could still easily do it.
