It’ll be an impressive room when the best and brightest gather to map out the future of the doctorate of nursing practice, and not just because it’ll be at Baltimore’s Four Seasons Hotel.
From Start-up to Impact: A DNP Conference (July 8-9) will be an opportunity for healthcare leaders, educators, and those seeking to advance nursing practice outcomes to examine the depth and breadth of the DNP programs.
Vanderbilt University School of Nursing’s Peter Buerhaus, PhD, RN, whose research focuses on nurse staffing ratios and their effects on patient care, will give a keynote speech. And faculty members Mary Terhaar, DNSc, CNS, RN; Martha Sylvia, PhD, MSN, MBA, RN; and Laura Taylor, PhD, RN, will lead presentations, panel discussions, and breakout sessions. A networking lunch and reception will round out the conference.
The event is for deans, executives, employers, and other healthcare professionals to initiate meaningful conversations about DNP practice and education. Key conference objectives include illustrating successful shifts from process-orientation to data-driven decision making and interprofessional education, and aligning outcomes of DNP education with the demands of DNP practice.
