1-1. How a DNP-prepared nurse would provide leadership in the various levels of the organizations—e.g., microsystem, mesosystem, and macrosystem?

Leadership provided by DNP prepared nurses would be predicated upon developing a rapport with colleagues and fellow nurses on a micro level wherein the DNP-prepared nurse would actively participate in shaping policies that these nurses would carry out while also leading by example in regard to ethical and moral practices that place the best interests of patients at the forefront of their leadership. In reference to the mesosystem, the DNP prepared nurse will be capable of providing critical analyses of health policies that are shaped by their interactions with patients, fellow nurses, and other healthcare professionals. The mesosystem interactions will rely upon ensuring the interests of these stakeholders are used to shape policy. At the macrosystem level, DNP prepared nurses will be able to engage in participatory actions regarding the development of and implementation of institutional, local, state, federal, and/or international health policy. Their ability to influence policy makers will be predicated upon the knowledge and evidence-based research that will be used for participating on committees, boards, or task forces at the institutional, local, state, regional, national, and/or international levels, which will be used to shape healthcare policy initiatives.

1-2. How would a DNP-prepared leader, support the three critical relationships outlined in the relationship-based care framework?

The DNP will be expertly trained in relationship-based care, that focuses upon placing value back on bedside nurses, by facilitating their ability to become moral agents within restructured and supportive work environments that are aligned with relationship-caring practices that address the needs of diverse populations. By utilizing skills and knowledge acquired from the DNP program, the DNP nurse will be able to create a practice environment that fosters the optimal nurse-patient relationship-the care. Relationship-based nursing is predicated upon human caring values that values life purposes, inner meaning, and patients as opposed to only focusing on economics alone.The DNP nurse will ensure that value is appropriated toward creating a caring nurse-patient relationship, that can only occur by facilitating a caring practice environment predicated upon ensuring that the humanistic component of the nurse-patient relationship represents a key factor within their delivery of care.

DNPs will collaborate with nurse staff by working with them as partners instead of as an authoritarian boss to to lead change while delivering the enhanced education and professional support necessary to improve clinical practice.

2-1. Why is it essential that DNP-prepared leaders understand their organization political and strategic system processes? Provide examples.

DNP graduates in administrative, healthcare policy, informatics, and population-based specialties focus their practice on aggregates: populations, systems (including information systems), organizations, and state or national policies. These specialties generally do not have direct patient care responsibilities. However, DNP graduates practicing at the aggregate/systems/organization level are still called upon to define actual and emerging problems and design aggregate level health interventions. These activities require that DNP graduates ...
