The transcripts from the student’s previous graduate program should indicate study
relevant to nursing theory, nursing research, healthcare informatics, and social,
cultural and political perspectives on healthcare and delivery systems. Equivalent
master’s level courses will be evaluated to determine if additional course work should
be required to support DNP practice. For example, a post masters certificate in nursing
education may be required if the DNP student chooses to seek a faculty position in
All students who seek admission to King University and who wish to hold APRN status
in Tennessee must have graduated from a nationally accredited (ACEN or CCNE) school
of nursing and completed courses in Advanced Pathophysiology, Advanced Pharmacology
(for prescribers) and, Advanced Health Assessment; APRNs must hold certification from
a nationally accredited organization in their specialty area of practice.
A graduate level statistics course completed within five years prior to program matriculation
is highly encouraged, but is not an admission requirement.
A comprehensive assessment is required for the completion of this program.
The demonstration of final competency at the DNP level is embodied in the culminating
translational research project. The translation research project is an in-depth and
integrative experience that results in a practice-related project implementation and
a written project paper that exemplifies how evidence can be used to change or improve
practice or outcomes for patients, families, populations, and/or healthcare systems.
Guided by faculty, and with assistance from an expert preceptor, the student will
negotiate to implement an evidence-based change/improvement project within the practice
setting or organization, and systematically measure the results of that work.
