All DNP students are assigned a faculty member as an academic advisor. The advisor is a resource for program information and advice. Students should meet with their advisor at least once a quarter.
The most current course information can be found in Seattle University's Graduate Catalog.
In addition to the responsibilities listed below, the Capstone Chair will step in to fill the advisor role for the remainder of the student’s program.
Students will identify a Capstone Committee Chair no later than the end of NURS 6015, Critical Inquiry II. Once students have identified a capstone project chair, who may or may not be the originally assigned advisor, that faculty person will take over the role of academic advising for the student and guide the student through the capstone project development.
Students should complete FORM C – the DNP Capstone Committee Declaration Form found in the DNP Student Handbook (Appendix H) no later than the end of NURS 6015 and submit it to the Graduate Program Coordinator. Please review Appendix D of the DNP Student Handbook on the Capstone Project Guidelines for information about choosing a supervisory committee for your capstone experience.
To learn about faculty areas of interest, see the faculty biosketches in Appendix A of the DNP Student Handbook or the CON website. Consult with your academic advisor, faculty for NURS 6015 and/or the DNP Internship Coordinator for assistance in identifying faculty whose scholarly interests are similar to yours.
