Theory and evidenced based research are applied with the goal of improving health care outcomes. In supervised clinical experiences, students integrate the role of the DNP into the clinical practice context that includes leadership, consultation, advocacy, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Clinical learning is directed at discovering the history, contextual evidence, and current strategies related to problems affecting patient safety and the quality of health care services for populations at risk. Emphasis is placed on translating research into practice as a means to improve the delivery of health care.
