									The Evolution of the Doctor of Nursing
           Practice Degree
What sparked the DNP movement
• The focus on clinical practice vs. pure research
• Evidence-based practice – required research knowledge
• Other health professionals – Pharm. D., DPT
• Multiple nursing practice degree names and initials
What gives the DNP movement impetus
• Supporting professional organizations & nursing agencies
• Institute of Medicine
• Magnet Status
• Health Care Reform
• Research Data
Process and Activities – From early 2000s until the present
The process of focusing on clinical practice first started in the
early 1980’s with the first practice-focused nursing doctorate
- Doctor of Nursing (NDs) - started as an entry level degree
American Association of Colleges of Nursing Task Force on
the Practice Doctorate in Nursing 2002 – to looked at trends
in doctorates & recommendations as to the needs for &
nature of these programs
AACN released a Position Statement on the Practice
Doctorate in Nursing (2004) - two types of nursing
doctorates: practice-focus and research-focus - and the
practice focus will be called the DNP
PROCESS – Building Consensus

Got the National Professional Nursing Organizations on board
Convened Deans and other key faculty from major
universities across the nation
Joined the task force to write the Essentials of DNP Education
(2006) – To be a transparent process
• Secured information from multiple sources about existing
  programs, trends & benefits of a practice doctorate
• Providing multiple opportunities for open discussion of
  related issues at AACN and other professional meetings
I Remember School Nurses…..
DNP Position (2004) statement about the benefits of practice focused doctoral

• development of needed advanced competencies for increasingly complex practice,
  faculty & leadership roles
• enhanced knowledge to improve nursing & patient outcomes
• enhanced leadership skills to strengthen practice & health care delivery
• better match of program requirements and credits and time with the credential
• provision of an advanced educational credential for those who require advanced
  practice knowledge but do not need or want a strong research focus (e.g., practice
• enhanced ability to attract individuals to nursing from non-nursing backgrounds
• increased supply of faculty for practice instruction
• bring about a transformational change in nursing education
DNP Position (2004) statement:
Key Issues to consider
“Practice demands associated with an
increasingly complex health care system
created a mandate for reassessing the
education for clinical practice for all
health professionals, including nurses.”
DNP Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice:
• Scientific underpinnings for practice
• Organizational and systems leadership for quality improvement and
  systems thinking
• Clinical scholarship and analytical methods for evidence-based practice
• Information systems/technology and patient care technology for the
  improvement and transformation of health care
• Health care policy for advocacy in health care
• Interprofessional collaboration for improving patient & population
  health outcomes
• Clinical prevention and population health for improving the Nation’s
• Advanced nursing practice
Consensus Model for APRN Regulation:
Licensure, Accreditation, Certification & Education (LACE Model)
July 2008
Completed through the work of the APRN Consensus Work Group & the
National Council of State Boards of Nursing APRN Advisory Committee
( The Players -- ANA, NONPF, NCSBN, AACN )

• Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) is licensing title used for the
  subset of nurses prepared with advanced, graduate-level nursing
  knowledge to provide direct patient care in four roles: certified registered
  nurse anesthetist, certified nurse-midwife, clinical nurse specialist, and
  certified nurse practitioner. Legal titles – APRN, CRNA, CNP, CNP-Family
• Accreditation of educational program –a foundational requirements for
  accrediting programs that evaluation outcomes related to standards for
  core role courses and population focused core competencies
• Certification to follow established certification testing and
  psychometrically sound, legally defensible standards; national
• Education (name the 3 Ps on transcript, state population & APRN role,
  meet Essentials (MSN & DNP); meet national consensus-based core
  competencies (NONPF NP ), preparation across the health-wellness
• National Certification in a role and one
• Preparation in a specialty area is optional &
  over and above role + population educational
  experiences (e.g., oncology)
• A specialty may not expand the APRN’s scope
  of practice into another role or population
• Implications for Licensing Bodies
• Implement the APRN legislative language
• Issue a second APRN license
• License APRNs as independent practitioners with full
  prescriptive authority
• Ensure APRN representation on the Board of Nursing
• Include a grandfathering clause for those APRNs
  already practicing
• APRN’s practice should not be restricted by setting
  but rather patient care needs
• Goal of the LACE model
  – Speak with a unified voice
  – Standardize regulatory requirements, including
    licensure, accreditation, certification & education
  – Increase access to & mobility of APRNs
  – Ensure APRNs are prepared to assume increased
    accountability & role within a transformed
    healthcare system
  – Maintain or increase number of APRNs prepared
    to meet population needs, especially primary care
• Consensus models has been endorsed by 46
  national nursing organizations and all major
  APRN organizations
• Original Timeline: target 2015
  – State Boards of Nursing to have regulations and/or
    legislation enacted by 2015
  – APRN education programs will be transitioned by
  – Certification examinations will be transitioned by
• AANA Position on
  Doctoral Preparation
  Nurse Anesthetists
   AANA supports doctoral
   education for entry into
   nurse anesthesia practice
   by 2025
• NONPF Statement on Acute Care & Primary Care CNP
  Practice (2012)
• Fundamental issue is that CNP competencies are not
  setting-specific. “It is inappropriate and restrictive to
  regulate acute and primary care CNP scope and
  practice based on settings. Regulation should be
  based on educational preparation, certification , and
  score of practice.”
• Patient care needs defines acute & primary care CNP
  scope of practice
