The Doctor of Nursing Practice Essentials 1st Edition PDF Free Download
Health care is in a whirlwind of change, and advanced practice nurses are right in the center of that change. The societal forces driving the transformation of health care have been dissected, researched, and exhaustively discussed, debated, and documented. Now, with the development of the Doctor of Nursing Practice program of study and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice, we have the opportunity to place these ideas into action—to bring them into nursing practice in a way never before done. This book provides a roadmap for creating change in health care and the tools to make those changes. It is important to mention that this book was authored solely by nurses who practice at an advanced level and who have achieved the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. Some fulfill traditional advanced practice roles, and some have expanded roles as administrators, educators, and entrepreneurs. Each of these nurses took hours out of his or her busy practice to author these materials. In that aspect, this book is unique. Additionally, this book is unique in that it lays out a step-by-step template or framework for the development of the scholarly project. Purpose of the Book This book is intended to serve as a core textbook for DNP students and faculty to use to achieve mastery of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing essentials as well as a shelf reference for practicing DNPs. The DNP essentials are all covered herein; each essential is covered in adequate detail to frame the foundation of the DNP educational program. This book provides the infrastructure for students, faculty, and practicing DNPs to achieve and sustain the highest level of practice.
