The call for Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) preparation has spurred significant change in nursing education over the past few years. The result has been a rush for program implementation. The recently published The Doctor of Nursing Practice: A Guidebook for Role Development and Professional Issues, Third Edition by Lisa Astalos Chism presents historical and current data around the DNP degree by exploring the role of the DNP graduate and the challenges associated with the BSN-to-DNP degree pathway.
Organized in two parts, the first reviews the DNP degree and the various roles that a graduate may assume upon completing their degree. Part II describes the unique professional issues faced by DNP graduates and provides tips on how to maneuver them. The Third Edition also explores the future of the DNP degree, real-life situations graduates are likely to encounter, and the author's personal anecdotes as a DNP graduate.
New to the Third Edition:
- New chapter on the DNP graduate as information specialist
- New chapter on the challenges and opportunities of the BSN-to-DNP path
- Potential roles for the DNP graduate
- Professional issues for the DNP
- Interviews with DNPs
