Springer Publishing Company, a leading publisher of nursing books, ebooks, apps, and digital products, has launched a comprehensive new online guide for instructors developing curricula for the rapidly expanding Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. The guide, DNP Nursing Curriculum Planning Solutions, available at http://www.dnpnursingsolutions.com, aids readers in designing a curriculum and in selecting books that meet the DNP guidelines.

Since its inception in 2004 in a white paper published by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the DNP doctorate has quickly grown to 264 programs around the country, with over 22,000 students. DNP curricula are designed around eight essential elements and competencies, overhauling nursing education to address the increasingly complex needs of a modern healthcare system.

Said Margaret Zuccarini, Publisher, Nursing at Springer Publishing: “As the DNP program continues to grow, more and more institutions are seeking to adopt it as part of their nursing programs. But for many nursing instructors, designing a curriculum to match the DNP’s demanding requirements remains a challenging process.
