2.1 SLO 1


Student Learning Objective 1:

DNP Essential Domain 1: Knowledge for Nursing Practice

Descriptor: Integration, translation, and application of established and evolving disciplinary nursing knowledge and ways of knowing, as well as knowledge from other disciplines, including a foundation in liberal arts and natural and social sciences. This distinguishes the practice of professional nursing and forms the basis for clinical judgment and innovation in nursing practice.


Please complete the following:

  • Review the SLO and the DNP Essential.
  • Discuss how you plan to meet the Student Learning Outcomes and the Essentials at this stage of your SPP.
  • Review the entry-level and advanced-level sub-competencies in the DNP Essentials. Examine what may be applicable to your project.

The purpose of this assignment is to recognize how the SLOs and DNP Essentials influence your SPP and nursing practice. The goal is to document how you have met all nine SLOs and DNP Essentials upon graduation.
