Abstract:
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: To describe one model for a Doctor of Nursing Practice curriculum for clinical nurse specialist preparation at both the post-master's and post-baccalaureate levels and to stimulate dialogue regarding doctoral preparation of clinical nurse specialists. SIGNIFICANCE: Doctor of Nursing Practice programs for preparation of advanced practice nurses are burgeoning in the United States. Most programs have begun with post-master's programs and several include post-baccalaureate options. Models for clinical nurse specialist curricula are less available than for nurse practitioners. BACKGROUND/RATIONALE: The Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) School of Nursing Doctor of Nursing Practice Program was developed to meet national standards while offering opportunities to individualize career paths. Sources included the AACN Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice, specialty organization criteria, including preliminary knowledge of the NACNS draft of doctoral level competencies, current trends, market analysis, and long-standing experience in preparing advanced practice nurses in highly-ranked programs. DESCRIPTION: The OHSU DNP curriculum is built around core knowledge in practice, clinical inquiry, and systems of care and is designed to prepare clinical nurse specialists who will be leaders in innovative practice with the skills to translate, disseminate, and integrate clinical knowledge that will transform the quality of health care. The OHSU DNP program prepares clinical nurse specialists who will, using leadership and collaboration, I) practice within an advanced practice specialty in a professional, evidence-based, skilled, and ethical manner; 2) influence health and health outcomes of individuals, groups, and populations through scholarly inquiry; 3) influence health policy and systems of care in the local, regional, state, national, and international forums. DNP and CNS core courses will be described. OUTCOME: The post-master's DNP program began in 2007 and the first clinical nurse specialists graduated in 2009. The post-baccalaureate program began in 2009. INTERPRETATION/CONCLUSION: DNP education provides advanced leadership preparation for current, expert clinical nurse specialists as well as for those seeking to become clinical nurse specialists at the post-baccalaureate level. IMPLICATIONS FOR CNS BASIC AND CONTINUING EDUCATION: The future of APRN education includes DNP preparation. Knowledge of one model for DNP preparation for CNSs can help guide other educators as they develop curricula.
