About One DNP

I earned my "terminal practice" degree in nursing from the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in a journey of excitement and challenge. It inspired me to advocate for an all encompassing clinical credential rather than continuing the hodgepodge of nonsensical initials. I hope these entries will provide entertainment and insight into the Doctor of Nursing Practice experience, which will soon be the entry standard for all advanced practice nurses.

New Grad Self-Care

As I prepare for my own graduation, another year of BSN students are heading toward their own commencement. The first year a practice can be an enormous reality shock, so much so that we have attrition rates in the double-digets. Several of my students who graduated last year have already changed jobs, and a few from two years ago have already left nursing entirely. I have a vested interest, both as a peer and as a patient, to make sure each graduating class produces intelligent, competent, committed nurses who enjoy their work and represent the profession well. This is a brief presentation I created a few years ago to help navigate the role transition and promote life-long job satisfaction. Congratulations class of 2012!
