ESSAY OVERVIEW:

Submitting an essay is one of the items required to complete your application for the Online DNP-NP program. This tool is to provide clarity regarding what the content of that essay should be, as well as some helpful tips in order to submit a scholarly essay that addresses all elements the review committee looks for in a DNP-NP application essay.

Your essay needs to describe 3 experiences that have prepared you for doctoral study and the nurse practitioner role: one from previous nursing course work, one from an experience as a practicing nurse, and one that reflects your strengths.

What is a Scholarly Project?

The scholarly project includes a comprehensive, literature review that addresses a specific clinical practice problem and a methodology to find a solution. It is a chance for DNP students to investigate a clinical issue that they are interested in and that affects their patients on a daily basis.

Are you having difficulty developing your Scholarly project idea?

The following websites may help:

NONPF’s – Criteria for NP Scholarly Projects in the Practice Doctorate Program

AACN’s The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice (see pages 3-5 for greater understanding of the DNP program and scholarly project.)

Do you need information on APA format?

We suggest visiting Maryville University’s Library Resources for more information.

Be sure to:

Write in a professional, scholarly tone

Proof-read your essay

Spell check!

Include an introduction and a conclusion

The use of “I, me, my” is appropriate

Use appropriate grammar and punctuation

Address all required parts of the essay (see outline)

Assume your reader is new to nursing jargon

Avoid the use of a lot of acronyms
