Book Preface

Functioning as both a graduate textbook and a professional resource, Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice explores the historical and evolving role of the new Doctoral Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, termed “DAPRN,” to describe DNPeducated nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, and clinical nurse specialists. Similarly, this text addresses roles for nurses engaged in Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice, termed “DAPNs,” to describe the role of the clinical executive, educator, and the other diverse roles that the DNP graduate may assume. There is a growing literature on the domain of practice “beyond the MSN” and this text specifically focuses on this emerging discussion. Because the role of the DNP graduate is evolving, the primary authors and contributing authors of this text present positions and reflective responses that represent a wide range of current views on the DNP role and the diverse “ideals” of what the role of the DAPRN and DAPN should be. This is also the first text that exclusively examines the evolving and expanding role functions of the DNP graduate.

Too often, nursing texts offer the sole view of the author. This text uniquely offers the views of many diverse faculty, executives, practitioners, and scholars. The distinctive feature of this text is the two-part chapter organization that presents the chapter content followed by one or more Reflective Responses, which provide commentaries that may counter or support the opinions of each chapter author or authors. Each Reflective Response is written by well-known DNP leaders representing the diverse roles and experience of academics, administrators, and practitioners, including graduates from different doctor of nursing practice programs. This innovative chapter presentation is bound to enhance classroom discussion. The work in its entirety is hopefully stimulating and provocative, and a well-rounded presentation of issues germane to DNP education, core competencies, and unfolding role development.We believe this is a “must have” text in DNP role development courses and courses covering contemporary DNP degree issues.
