Newswise — When you are seeking a clear view of the future of DNP education, there are few places better to begin than From Start-up to Impact: A DNP Conference (July 8-9 at the Four Seasons hotel in Baltimore). The event, assembled by the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, is an opportunity to engage leaders from across the practice and education continuum and hear the top minds in patient care discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by health care reform.

Included on the program is keynote speaker Peter Buerhaus, PhD, RN, FAAN, of Vanderbilt University’s School of Nursing, a noted researcher on nurse staffing ratios and their effects on patient care. His current research involves trends in employment and earnings, the age composition of nurse and physician workforces, and the contributions of nurse practitioners providing primary care.

Registration is now open, and the deadline for abstracts (describing programs, initiatives, or outcomes of DNP education) has been extended through March 3. Those who book by June 14 are eligible for a $149 room rate at the five-star Four Seasons, located in Baltimore’s upscale Harbor East waterfront neighborhood.

Conference Objectives

• Initiate meaningful conversations about DNP practice and education
• Illustrate successful shifts from process-orientation to those that encompass outcomes, data-driven decision making, and interprofessional collaboration
• Align the outcomes of DNP education with the demands of DNP practice

Who Should Attend

Leaders from academia who prepare DNPs as well as healthcare executives, employers, and/or those who benefit from advance nursing practice outcomes.

The DNP program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing prepares students to lead healthcare innovations and influence policy—founded on analytic principles and evidence-based practice—at the highest organizational level.
