BRISTOL, Tenn., December 4, 2014 – Christmastime is the perfect time to give yourself
a gift that will never stop giving back to you – the gift of an expanded education
through King University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program.
“The DNP is the terminal degree in nursing practice,” says Dr. Rhonda Morgan, DNP,
MSN, RN, CCNS, CEN, CNRN, APN, associate dean for Graduate Studies Nursing and associate
professor for the King University School of Nursing. “The preparation and knowledge
gained in the DNP, position nurse leaders to affect change in outcomes by translating
research into practice and bringing new knowledge to the arena - whether it is at
the bedside or the boardroom.”
King’s DNP program is a practice-focused platform, which will contribute to the expansion
of knowledge underlying advanced professional nursing practice. The program emphasizes
specific DNP skill development such as translation of research into practice, evaluation
of interdisciplinary teamwork for performance excellence, and dissemination of new
knowledge for outcomes improvement. The program was designed using Essential of Doctoral
Education for Advanced Nursing Practice specified by the American Association of Colleges
of Nursing (AACN).
King’s DNP program will have a blended format curriculum of online and on-site coursework.
The students will participate in three face-to-face colloquia at King’s Hardin Valley
campus in Knoxville, Tenn. The program consists of 36 prescribed semester credit hours,
1,000 documented post-baccalaureate clinical hours, a culminating translational research
project, and demonstration of identified final degree competencies. Some of the courses
include Applied Statistics for Evidence-based Practice, Nursing Informatics, Leadership
of Complex Systems and Organizations, and Ethical Issues in Advanced Nursing Practice.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at King University is open to qualified applicants
who hold a master’s degree in Nursing from an accredited school and a current unencumbered
license as a registered nurse, including practitioners, educators, nurse specialists,
generalists, and administrators.
Applications for King University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program for fall 2015
will be accepted from Jan. 1 through March 31, 2015.
