Theorem 10.83.5. If $P$ is a projective $R$-module, then $P$ is a direct sum of countably generated projective $R$-modules.

** Any projective module is a direct sum of countably generated projective modules. **

**Proof.**
A module is projective if and only if it is a direct summand of a free module, so this follows from Theorem 10.83.4.
