Read more excerpts from the review:
"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. [It] has been thoughtfully updated.
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.
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.
Healthcare continues to change at a rapid pace and, with these changes, the education of the healthcare workforce must change to remain current. It is essential that this valuable resource be regularly revised to remain accurate and current."
