Chamberlain’s DNP curriculum is grounded in eight essentials outlined in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing document, The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice (DNP Essentials)1. Input from key constituencies, and several national documents and data are also incorporated into the program. These include, but are not limited to, the Institute of Medicine, Quality and Safety Education for Nurses and other national initiatives focusing on change and transformation to promote patient safety, nurse vitality and quality care outcomes in a culturally diverse society.
Throughout the program, you will put your learning into practice during a project and practicum experience. You will work closely with a practicum coordinator, Chamberlain faculty and your chosen preceptor, an expert in the nursing field who provides guidance throughout the practicum experience.
