Please contact the Health Placement Team to obtain the organizational approval letter and
preceptor agreement. In addition, you will need to work with Health Placement for an
affiliation agreement if required by your facility/organization.
You will design and develop an evidenced-based practice change, quality improvement, or
innovation that demonstrates the synthesis of WGU graduate competencies. This project is not
primary research but should be focused on scholarly evidence in support of practice
improvements, innovation, or general practice change. It will not require an Institutional Review
Board (IRB) approval. You will be required to conduct a comprehensive literature review that
defines the evidence in support of your project.

The literature review represents a collection of
primary research studies that have already been conducted and that provide guidance for best
practices. Once your project plan is complete, you will create a professional presentation that
outlines your plan and then present it to your stakeholder group and preceptor.
Before you start your project, you will first need to secure organizational approval and obtain a
letter of agreement from your preceptor. In this task, you will be required to develop a plan for
your capstone project that describes your problem and proposed solution.
