Effective executive practice requires substantial knowledge of business, finance, labor relations, strategic leadership, organized development, and healthcare policy. The ELDNP is an advanced-level practice degree that emphasizes application of research to clinical nursing practice at the highest administrative levels.
The new cohort for the Executive Leadership DNP (ELDNP) program will start in late January 2014. Content is structured in an innovative hybrid format, integrating the best practices of classroom and computer-assisted instruction.
This program is designed specifically for current nurse executives at the division level or above with supervisory oversight of a group of essential services or functions. This degree extends and enhances the knowledge, skill and performance of these healthcare system leaders in a wide variety of clinical and administrative environments. The curriculum for executive leadership is based on the AACN Essentials for DNP, in addition to the AONE Core Competencies for Nursing Executives. The curriculum also conforms to the standards and expectations set forward by the Council on Graduate Education for Administrative Nursing (CGEAN), the American Nurses Association, and the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) Health Leadership Competency Model.
Structured in an innovative hybrid format, students in the Executive Leadership DNP program come to San Francisco for a total of 12 teaching intensives during the 6 semesters, and engage with the contents and their fellow students through meaningful computer-assisted activities in between the teaching intensives.
Current nurse executives are invited to apply now for January 2014! Join faculty, students and alumni for an information reception. Stop by our table to inquire about details.
