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.

Kiss My A!

Thankfully, my dissident spin on the assignment won back the points I should have lost by not following directions . . . I put it in a pdf instead of a word document. Hey, the syllabus said a policy brief should stand out!
