The newly revised Second Edition of The Doctor of Nursing Practice Essentials: A New Model for Advanced Practice Nursing is the first text of its kind and is modeled after the eight DNP Essentials as outlined by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Each section discusses the materials relevant to an element of the Essentials document and advises on the steps necessary to fulfill the requirements of the degree. The text is written for current DNP students as well as those considering the degree program. It also serves as a fantastic reference for professionals and those who have already completed a DNP program.

Updates to the new edition include:
• Greater detail around identifying specific nursing strategies for application and practice
• A revised chapter on informatics that contains newer bedside tools for evidence-based practice (EBP) implementation
• New data on the current health care reforms
• A strong focus on community health
• Expanded chapters on emerging roles and the DNP project

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen M Woodruff, DNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This comprehensive resource focuses on integrating the eight core essentials of doctoral education for advanced nursing practice, as outlined by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), with the evolving role of the advanced practice nurse. Originally published in 2011, this book has been thoughtfully updated.
Purpose: The purpose is to assist doctor of nursing practice (DNP) students, graduates, and faculty in the mastery and implementation of the eight AACN DNP core essentials. The primary purpose is to provide an infrastructure that will support advanced practice nurses in achieving and sustaining the highest level of practice.
Audience: DNP students, graduates, and faculty will find this a worthwhile addition to their library. It will be a consistently used reference. Both authors are experts in the field of advanced practice nursing and doctor of nursing practice education.
Features: The first of the book's three main sections focuses on defining and explaining AACN's eight core practice essentials. The second section reviews the role of the advanced practice nurse historically and explores how the DNP degree will change/grow this role. The final section explores and defines the culminating requirement of the DNP curriculum, the scholarly project.
Assessment: Healthcare continues to change at a rapid pace and, with these changes, the education of the healthcare workforce must change to remain current. The DNP, a relatively recent degree, is a doctorate with a focus on practice. This book serves a roadmap for students in a DNP program or considering the degree, for recent graduates with the degree, and for faculty who are crafting the programs for this advanced practice role. It is essential that this valuable resource be regularly revised to remain accurate and current.
