Faculty Review Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice
on August 11, 2011
H. Michael Dreher & Mary Ellen Smith Glasgow: Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Practice is an essential textbook for all clinical doctorate nursing programs. As Chair of the Doctor of Nursing Practice Committee and Graduate Program Director of the 2nd largest Catholic University in New England I am planning to adopt this textbook to stimulate discussion during the DNP Scholarship and Advanced Practice clinical immersion courses during the last year of the program. While there other textbooks written about the Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree this book is unique in that it goes beyond the eight DNP Essentials outlined by the American Association Colleges of Nursing (AACN). The editors highlight the DNP graduate roles as practitioner, clinical executive, educator, clinical scientist and clinical scholar. Experts in their fields offer reflective responses to a wide variety of topics including but not limited to executive coaching, negotiation skills, mentorship, DNP certification and influencing technology. This intelligent, well written text will be a key component to any discussion about the state of advanced practice nursing today and tomorrow.
