Abstract

Programs with several paths to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) face significant difficulties in preparing clinical scholars who can transform healthcare. While Post-Baccalaureate to DNP (BSN-DNP) programs are fulfilling the Institute of Medicine's mandate for seamless academic progression, several factors need to be considered for students' successful program completion. These factors include: (1) the students' stage of cognitive development for strategic thinking (metacognition); (2) students' tendency to underestimate the rigors of doctoral educational requirements; and (3) faculty challenges in helping students to acquire skills needed to complete the DNP project. The purpose of this paper is to describe learner-centered approaches to enhance analytic preparation of BSN-DNP students.
