BRISTOL, Tenn., June 21, 2016 – King University is hosting an Open House event for
master’s-level nurses interested in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program.
The event will take place on King’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn., on June 28 from
4:30-6:30 p.m. in room 109 of Nicewonder Hall.
“The DNP is the terminal degree in nursing practice,” says Dr. Rhonda Morgan, associate
dean for Graduate Studies for King University’s 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 contributes to the expansion
of knowledge underlying advanced professional nursing practice. This program places
emphasis on essential knowledge development in areas including 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 the Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice specified
by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
The DNP program is an online degree program which includes participation 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.
In May of this year, King University received full accreditation from the Commission
on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for the DNP program.
