For my Capstone project, I conducted a qualitative phenomenological research study on the lived experiences of "nurse practitionering" from the perspective of practicing nurse practitioners. The study involved extensive research, approval by the Internal Review Board (IRB) of Sacred Heart University (SHU), recruitment of participants and collection of data. A total of eight NPs were interviewed, the recordings were transcribed verbatim and extensively analyzed for recurring themes. The data findings were articulated into a manuscript for submission to a professional journal. The manuscript was recently submitted to The Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (JAANP) and is currently under review. The project won an award for "Outstanding Master's Capstone Project" and the findings were presented at a Poster Presentation at SHU. Below is a picture of the poster.
