Description

This is the first book to document and analyze the development and integration of Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) and the Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs in graduate nursing institutions by leading authorities in the field. A practical and informative guidebook for educators and nurses, this book will prepare nurses to meet the changes in the healthcare delivery system. It provides what nurse educators need to know to establish the doctorates in line with institutional philosophy and policies. It presents directives on clinical experiences necessary for CNL and DNP degrees. There are two chapters written by the AACN Taskforce on the new degrees, with essential information on how to gain and sustain accreditation; rotations; clinical evaluations; and legal issues of clinical education.
