Posted by

It’s time to get an advanced degree nursing pin! By the year 2020, USA aims to produce twice as many doctorate graduate nurses. For this to happen, at least 10% of all BSN graduates must pursue a Masters of Science in Nursing degree, a DNP degree or a PhD degree within five years after their Pinning Ceremony and nursing school graduation. With less and less primary care medical doctors in the workforce, there is a prediction that there will be an extreme shortage of nurses in almost every state and this country will need more competent, highly qualified nurse professionals to fill in the job vacancies. Decide now. Earn your DNP nursing pin from the accredited programs and universities. Before you get into the program, here are the basic facts you need to know:

What is DNP?

DNP means Doctor of Nursing Practice. It is one of the highest degree in the nursing profession that has a clinical focus. This means that if you have obtained a DNP degree, your work will revolve around primary health care which involves diagnostics, advanced nursing practice, and disease treatment. You will be an independent nurse practitioner with a particular specialty and expertise. The DNP curriculum varies in every nursing school that offers the program and depends on the chosen specialty area. It is the terminal degree for clinical nursing education and the graduate degree for advanced nursing practice preparation.

How different is the DNP from the PhD?

The DNP is focused on practice competencies while the PhD has in-depth focus on academic research. It differs from the research, theory, and meta-theory focus of the PhD where research is aimed at creating and disseminating new nursing knowledge through research, scholarly papers, and dissertation. The DNP also prepares the professional nurse’s ability to translate evidence-based nursing care into nursing practice while on the other hand, the PhD prepares the doctorate student to conduct and disseminate nursing research to produce new knowledge that is considered evidence-based. Further, the DNP program helps the professional nurse to improve systems of care while the PhD program empowers the professional nurse to establish new ways to improve systems of care.

Both degrees train the professional nurse to measure health outcomes of patients, communities, and populations.

What are the requirements for the DNP program?

The requirements vary on pathways to the DNP (earned MSN or have earned BSN pre-licensure degree) and among nursing schools that offer the program but will generally include the following:

  1. Admissions application and application fee
  2. Excellent GPAs in BSN and/or the MSN degree
  3. Has an impact on nursing practice
  4. Has leadership skills
  5. Current resume/CV
  6. Official Transcripts
  7. Recommendation letters
  8. Personal/Goal statement
  9. Current licensure
  10. Interview

Think about wearing the DNP graduation nursing pin after completing the program successfully. It symbolizes the exceptional nurse in you, ready to serve your country in the nursing practice field especially at the time when administrative, leadership, and management roles are highly needed to fill in the academe or the education, informatics, public policy, public health, and administration.
