First edition won an AJN Book-of-the-Year Award and a Doody’s 5-Star review!

This core text for the DNP curriculum explores the historical and evolving advanced practice doctoral role as envisioned by leading DNP scholars and educators. Its distinctive point–counterpoint format—consisting of commentaries that dispute or support the opinions of chapter authors—provides a foundation of varying opinions that stimulate vigorous critical dialogue. The second edition examines the latest developments in doctoral-level roles along with the specific skills that advance these roles. Seven completely new chapters examine the meaning of nursing roles that reflect how they are evolving in a variety of environments.

In addition to exploring in-depth the basic roles of the DNP graduate, this new edition strengthens the primary DNP role—that of a clinical scholar. Highlighting the diverse range of views on the DNP mission, the book reflects on DNP competencies and focuses heavily on the variety of skills that are required to operationalize these competencies, including leadership, negotiation skills, leveraging technology to support practice, and others. New critical thinking exercises are included that are designed to expand the boundaries of ordinary classroom discourse.

New to the Second Edition:

    • New chapters include:

    • A Report on a National Study of Doctoral Nursing Faculty

    • When the DNP Chair Is a DNP Graduate

    • A Critique of the 2006 Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice

    • New or enhanced reflective responses from leading scholars

    • New or revised critical thinking exercises to foster vibrant discourse

Key Features:

    • Emphasizes DNP role development with extensive contributions by leading DNP scholars

    • Translates American Association of Colleges of Nursing core competency skills into real-life applications of the DNP practice role

    • Provides a point–counterpoint format to stimulate vigorous class discussion and analysis

    • Includes case examples, critical thinking questions, and discussion questions

H. Michael Dreher, PhD, RN, FAAN, is professor and dean of the School of Nursing at The College of New Rochelle, in New Rochelle, New York. He has a BSN and master’s in nursing from the University of South Carolina and received his PhD in nursing science from Widener University in 2000. In 2003, he completed a 2-year postdoctorate in sleep and respiratory neurobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. He currently serves as associate editor for Clinical Scholars Review: The Journal of Doctoral Nursing Practice and is editor for the column “Practice Evidence.” He is the coauthor of two AJN first-place books of the year: Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice in 2011 and Legal Issues Confronting Today’s Nursing Faculty: A Case Study Approach in 2012, both written with Mary Ellen Smith Glasgow. His first book, Philosophy of Science for Nursing Practice with Michael D. Dahnke (2010), was awarded five stars by Doody’s and was selected as a Core Doody Title 2010 to 2012. He has worked on the practice doctorate in nursing at the national and international level and in 2010 was appointed as the only international panelist on the United Kingdom’s 2011 Report on Professional Doctorates. He was inducted a fellow in the American Academy of Nursing for his contributions to the nursing discipline in 2012. Today, Dr. Dreher continues his professional journey advocating for the integration of practice evidence and knowledge in the practice doctorate and is an advocate for more rigor in the degree. His current interests are also focused on the role of ethics in nursing academia and higher education, with emphasis on studying the ethics of deans, academic nursing administrators, senior faculty, and others in leadership positions in universities and colleges.
