Abstract:

poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

Attendance in the Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy allows the nurse educator to develop strong leadership skills in a mentored environment. The process for developing these skills involves a leadership project that facilitates real-world application of content. This project involved development of a dual-admission/articulation agreement with another university to better meet the needs of rural nurses and an underserved community while advancing the IOM Future of Nursing agenda. The MSN program at Southwest Baptist University offers tracks in administration, education, missionary, and parish nursing but lacks the infrastructure necessary to provide a doctoral degree. The development of an agreement with another institution that currently provides an online DNP program allows the MSN graduate to enter the doctoral program with advanced standing. The study plan allows for MSN courses to fulfill pre-requisite courses for the DNP program. The seamless progression of the student is furthered by transfer of appropriate MSN courses to the DNP program with DNP clinical hours used to meet MSN requirements. Benefits include the ability for nurses to complete their terminal degree locally through this distance education agreement, thus increasing the number of primary care providers in this rural area. The DNP program benefits from increased access to qualified applicants who are very committed to completing their degree. The process for developing an agreement is presented as part of this poster.
