These represent a few community and organizational needs, challenges, and issues that may require and merit the advocacy, skill set, and knowledge of the DNP-prepared nurse. In your role as a DNP-prepared nurse, you may find yourself the champion and advocate for improved health outcomes both at a local and individual patient level to one of a national or global and population-based level. The DNP-prepared nurse is well poised to address and advocate changes not only in a healthcare setting but in a community context to promote positive social change and positive health-based outcomes.

For this Discussion, reflect on those needs, challenges, and issues that may be most important for your community or organization. Why do these needs, challenges, and issues merit the attention of a DNP-prepared nurse?

To prepare:

  • Review the Learning Resources for this week and consider those local issues/topics that are most important for your community

    or organization. Find articles about your community or organization that reflect the need for intervention by a doctorally prepared nurse.

  • Reflect on why these local issues/topics merit addressing from your perspective as a DNP-prepared nurse.
  • Reflect on your role as the DNP-prepared nurse to address these local issues/topics and consider what type of practice changes or interventions you might recommend to bring about needed change for your community or organization.

By Day 3 of Week 7

Post a response to your Blog in which you describe at least two of the most important needs/challenges/issues in your community or organization. Why are these needs/challenges/issues important? Be specific. Then, recommend at least two practice changes or interventions you would suggest to address these needs/challenges/issues in your community or organization. Be sure to align your role as the DNP-prepared nurse to the competencies identified in the AACN Essentials.

By Day 5 of Week 7

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses and respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days by suggesting additional strategies your colleague could implement to bring about needed change in their community.

Week 7: The Doctorally Prepared Nurse: Community of Practice

What is meant by a community of practice?

A community of practice represents a group of individuals who share a common purpose and desire to positively impact their practice and share ideas, perspectives, and lessons learned to enhance the proficiency with which to engage in practice.

Not surprisingly, as a profession, nursing already represents a critical community of practice. Moreover, DNP-prepared nurses are uniquely poised to lead and install changes of a transformative capacity within a community of practice due to their skill set of understanding and engaging in evidence-based practice. As a future DNP-prepared nurse, how do you see yourself engaging with or leading a community of practice?

This week, you will examine community and organizational needs, challenges, and issues. You will analyze the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in addressing these needs, challenges, and issues in your Blog Assignment. You will also consider and recommend practice changes that will meet community and organizational needs, challenges, and issues.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Evaluate community and organization needs, challenges, and issues
  • Analyze the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in addressing community and organization needs, challenges, and issues
  • Recommend practice changes and interventions that address community and organization needs, challenges, and issues
