DNP Essentials Synthesis Seminar

This course provides the opportunity to synthesize and apply knowledge from the ten AACN Essentials domains and competencies in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Project and in preparation for progression to the Clinical Practicum. The DNP Project is a written scholarly project related to the student's role and population/setting of interest. Ultimately, the DNP Project is designed to improve health outcomes for individuals, families, populations, or systems. In this course, the student develops a proposal for the project. In addition, the student conducts a self-assessment of current competencies, identifying areas to be met through the DNP Project and/or through subsequent Clinical Practicum courses.
