Scholarly Product Development

Scholarly Product Development


As noted in previous weeks of the course, collegial collaboration can broaden your perspective and help you to generate new ideas. How might this be true for the development of a scholarly product for dissemination?

In this Discussion, you and your colleagues share insights related to dissemination, including how dissemination relates to your development as a scholar-practitioner and as a nurse leader.

What insights have you gained through developing this product? (You may also wish to reflect on insights gained through your oral presentations.)
What other forums could be appropriate for disseminating the findings of your DNP Project? (Consider involvement in professional organizations, for instance.)
How does dissemination relate to your development as a scholar-practitioner and a nurse leader?
