NURS 8002 AACN Competencies and the Walden Mission, Vision, and Outcomes

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) set forth a set of standards, the DNP Essentials, that define the foundational competencies that should be acquired and focused throughout a DNP degree program’s curriculum. Additionally, the DNP Essentials represent those competencies and areas that will inform your areas of practice as a DNP-prepared nurse. Take special note that in addition to your personal and academic motivations for pursuing a DNP degree, you will be required to demonstrate and enact these essentials in your daily practice.

DISCUSSION 2 RESPONSE

Health care needs for every population change from time to time. The situation requires well-trained nurses with a high level of judgment and critical thinking. Additionally, the institution is built with the socio-cultural and moral responsibility of the community. The learner’s initial post singled out a culturally sensitive nurse who respects the culture and lifestyle of a community (Gates, 2018). That is a relevant quality of a baccalaureate-trained nurse. An advanced practice registered nurse works collaboratively with different teams to achieve a high-quality patient outcome.

An institution like Walden University can initiate a socio-cultural change to support the growth of its environment. It can share its values and beliefs with the authorities of the community to share a common interest. The university can raise an educated and sound generation of graduates in nursing practice and other fields to initiate positive change in the health sector (Lawrence et al, 2018). A well-trained nursing workforce of master and doctor of nursing practice is important for bridging the gap between the minority and the privileged group. The nurse works in the community to diagnose and treat conditions that result in poor lifestyle or diet.

The practitioner conducts appropriate health education and disease prevention strategies for high-risk individuals. The main goal and objective of a highly trained, clinical, and competent nurse are to empower the young generation of novice nurses to find direction for career progress (Mackay et al, 2017). Take part in conferences, talks, and mentoring strategies promotes unity and passion for the profession. Therefore, the American Association of Colleges of nursing should have the mandate to promote educational advancement and career progression to Doctor of nursing practice levels.

In the next module, you will analyze the roles and expectations associated with the DNP-prepared nurse. You will also examine the alignment between the AACN DNP Essentials and your practicum/field experience and Doctoral Project requirements.

Looking Ahead: Week 5 Assignment

In Week 5, you will select at least 3 AACN DNP Essentials that most align to the completion of a Doctoral Project. You will also explain how the AACN DNP Essentials you selected will relate to the completion of a practicum/field experience.

Although you will submit the Week 5 Assignment by Day 7 of Week 5, it is highly encouraged that you reflect on the AACN DNP Essentials you consulted this week and review the requirements to begin your preparation for completing the Week 5 Assignment this week.
