Assistant Clinical Professor Sarah Campbell, earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from The Ohio State University College of Nursing.

Assistant Clinical Professor Sarah Campbell has earned her doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree from The Ohio State University College of Nursing.

Campbell is a graduate of the first class of UCI Masters of Science (Nursing) Family Nurse Practitioner students in 2011.

“Getting my DNP means that I have the skill and confidence to lead in my area of clinical expertise as a family nurse practitioner by translating evidence-based research into practice!,” Campbell says.

She notes that DNP-prepared advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are in a unique position to lead quality-improvement projects, shape policy, implement evidence-based practice changes and lead interdisciplinary teams to improve organizational systems and population health outcomes.

“I can also mentor our students through their DNP education by acting as a chair and advisor on their projects and helping them understand the importance of being a doctorally-trained APRN.”

A DNP is a practice-focused doctorate, unlike a PhD, which is a research-focused doctorate. The DNP is now the recommended terminal degree for APRNs, rather than a master’s degree.
