Functioning as both a graduate and professional textbook, Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice explores the historical and evolving role of the new doctoral advanced practice registered nurse.

This innovative text presents a distinctive two-part chapter organization that provides content followed by one or more Reflective Responses, which consist of commentaries that may counter or support the opinions of each chapter author. Written by well-known DNP leaders representing the diverse roles and experience of academics, administrators, and practitioners from different DNP programs, these Reflective Responses initiate thought-provoking classroom discussion. This stimulating and provocative text presents issues germane to DNP education, core competencies, and unfolding role development. It is an essential resource in DNP role development courses and courses covering contemporary DNP degree issues.

Key Features:

  • Provides background information on the evolution of the DNP degree, essential content on role theory, and what nursing "roles" are and how they are evolving
  • Discusses how master's versus doctoral-level advanced nursing practice roles differ
  • Focuses on the basic roles of the DNP graduate that currently predominate: practitioner, clinical executive, educator, clinical scientist, and the role of the clinical scholar
  • Highlights how the DNP can use his or her new competencies to function at a higher level
  • Covers the diverse skills that comprise the doctoral APRN and doctoral APN role, including leadership content, negotiation skills, leveraging technology to support doctoral advanced level practice, and more
