Hi! Is anyone else a current DNP student who is also struggling with getting permission to just START their capstone project? I am graduating with my post-Master's DNP degree in May 2017, yet I have not started implementing my project yet.
I have spent the past five months writing and editing my proposal over and over again, due to the very picky comments of my professors. A week ago i finally obtained approval from my professors to do my project. Now I am waiting to hear back from IRB with regards to them approving my project proposal….but I have to get approval from both my graduate school and also the university in which I work because that is where I'll be implementing my project. The first place gave me approval within two days but now the second site is wondering if I need to do a complete IRB form (different from the first form I did for the first site) for it first.
Just wondering if other DNP students have gone through all this red tape that I have been going through…all just to do a non research QI project!
