Call for Nominations: American Association of Colleges of Nursing Outstanding Dissertation and Capstone Awards
AACN created this new awards program to recognize and showcase outstanding dissertations and capstone projects completed by students in research- and practice-focused doctoral programs. Many doctoral students are advancing ground-breaking research and practice innovations that are worthy of national recognition and could serve as exemplars for other students to emulate.
Excellence in Advancing Nursing Science Award is for an outstanding dissertation from a student in a PhD in nursing or DNS program. A dissertation is an original research project that focuses on advancing nursing science and developing new evidence with the potential to guide nursing practice.
Excellence in Advancing Nursing Practice Award is for an outstanding capstone project from a student in a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. A capstone project demonstrates high-level mastery of an area of advanced nursing practice and focuses on the translation of evidence into practice.
Dissertation/capstone project has the potential to advance nursing science, education, practice, and/or policy. Scholarly ideas show great promise and originality, and contribute new knowledge to the profession.
Dissertation Award: Adds to the scientific base for nursing practice; advances understanding of a critical nursing issue; and demonstrates methodological sophistication.
Capstone Award: Demonstrates a measurable improvement or impact on care delivery and/or patient outcomes; may be replicated in other settings.
Only dissertations and capstone projects that have been successfully defended/completed may be considered for an award. Students must have defended/completed their dissertation or capstone/scholarly projects between October 1, 2013 and September 15, 2014.
Awards are offered for “early career” doctoral program students/graduates. Students with previous doctoral degrees will not be considered.
Student projects must be consistent with AACN’s mission and vision.
Submitting a Nomination
Nominations may be made by the dean, doctoral department chair, dissertation committee chair, or capstone project advisor. One nomination for each program type may be sent from an individual school of nursing. The nomination letter must include:
