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 book describes the development and importance of the role of the doctor of nursing practice (DNP) and is a guide to identifying and creating changes in the current healthcare system.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as a core textbook for DNP students and presents the Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. It strives to provide students, faculty, and practicing DNPs with the format and structure to create the highest level of nursing practice.
Audience: It meets the needs of current DNP students, faculty, and graduates. The authors have all attained their DNP and are authorities in the field.
Features: Three sections cover the essentials for practice, DNP roles, and DNP scholarly projects. The initial section introduces and develops the theoretical aspects of the clinical doctorate. The second section provides an understanding of both traditional and future roles for the advanced practice nurse with a clinical doctorate. The final section provides specific information related to scholarly projects such as a template for projects and an understanding of the process of the project.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for students working toward a clinical doctorate. The information is accurate and valuable to students, faculty, and practicing DNPs. The book provides the foundation necessary for achieving the highest level of advanced practice nursing. As the healthcare system continues to evolve, advanced practice nurses will be pivotal in integrating research data, collaborating/interpreting data for the healthcare team, and in leading organizations in the changes occurring in healthcare.
