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 doctorally-prepared Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). 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 diverse range of current views on the DNP role and the diverse 'ideals' of what the role of the doctorally-prepared APRN should be. This is also the first text to market 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 one uniquely does not. The highlight of this text is the two-part chapter organization that presents the chapter content followed by a Reflective Response, which is commentary that may counter or support the opinions of the chapter author. Each Reflective Response is written by well-known DNP leaders representing the diverse roles and experience of academics, administrators and practitioners. This innovative chapter presentation is bound to provide for more stimulating classroom discussion. This work is stimulating and possibly provocative, but in the end is a well-rounded, landmark presentation of a wide range of topics surrounding education of the DNP, the core competencies and the unfolding DNP role development. It is a 'must have' text for use in all DNP role development courses and courses covering contemporary DNP degree issues! Each of the textbook's sections thoroughly covers important aspects of role development: Section I: provides background information on the evolution of the DNP degree; essential content on role theory; what nursing "roles" are and how they evolved; and a discussion of how masters versus doctoral level advanced nursing practices differ Section II: focuses on the four basic roles of the DNP graduate which currently predominate: practitioner, clinical executive, educator, and clinical trials research scientist, as well as the role of the clinical scholar which each graduate is expected to be Section III: covers the diverse skills that comprise the doctoral APRN role; including leadership content, negotiation skills, and leveraging technology to support doctoral advanced level practice; debate over the DNP Exam; discussion of DNP grads using the title "Dr"; and how the doctoral APRN can use their new competencies to function at a higher level
