Purpose/Aim: DNP graduates will be called upon to articulate and build the case for their position, as they strive to influence the delivery of quality patient and family care. The purpose of this presentation is to describe pedagogical strategies aimed at fostering DNP students' skills to effectively engage in critical communications across clinical, organizational, political, and consumer settings.  Learning activities and outcomes from three courses will be described.  Ongoing evaluation of activities and program recommendations for these courses will be discussed. Rationale/Background: The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice provides a framework for the preparation of DNP students for clinical leadership roles.  In these roles, DNP graduates will be catalysts for improved healthcare delivery practices and health outcomes at macro and micro levels.  These practice-focused nursing scholars will be required to effectively build the case for professional activities that fall under their influence, including recommendations for practice improvement and organizational change, evaluations of existing or proposed programs, translation of research into practice, and proposals for policy change. Description of the Undertaking including Approach/Methods/Processes: The DNP curriculum at [....deleted for blinded review...] offers a variety of learning activities to support students' development of critical building the case communication and leadership skills. Three courses in particular integrate clinical and organization/business focused communications: [...deleted for blinded review...]. Courses focus on clarification of the problem/issue, identification of stakeholders, tailoring the message to the audience, and succinctly composing a relevant, meaningful message.  Learning activities include a broad range of formal and informal written and oral forms of building the case communication strategies for stakeholders from the bedside to the boardroom. Outcomes Achieved/Documented: Program and course outcomes were achieved as students demonstrated the ability to complete executive summaries, publishable manuscripts, and systems and financial analyses.  Outcomes provide a foundation for subsequent DNP program courses and students' professional portfolios. Conclusions: These courses provide underpinnings in communication and leadership for DNP graduates, as executive decision makers in increasingly complex healthcare environments.  Students are challenged to expand their scope of influence - as expert leaders, communicators, and scholars - by developing competencies that build the business/practice case.
