Nursing Research Utilization Project Proposal
The proposal is the plan for a nursing research-based project to address a problem in the professional healthcare setting. Proposals are submitted
in a format suitable for obtaining formal approval in the work setting.
Section headings and numbers for each section component are required, and the responses are addressed in narrative form in relation to that
number. All sections of the proposal are evaluated based on the extent to which the depth of content reflects graduate-level critical thinking skills.

Running Head: PROJECT PROPOSAL 2
Section E: Evaluation Plan
PROJECT PROPOSAL 3
Describe the methods to be used to evaluate the solution.
Develop or revise an outcome measure that evaluates the extent to which the project objective is achieved. A copy of the measure must be
included in the appendix.
Describe the ways in which the outcome measure is valid, reliable, sensitive to change, and appropriate for use in this proposed project.
Evaluation Data Collection:
