Sample 1st Paragraph DNP Nurse Anesthesia, Filipina-American Applicant

A very hard working and dedicated Filipina-American nurse, I hope to be selected to begin your competitive DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program at XXXX University in Month, of Year, on the basis of my intense passion and extensive experience in the area of Pediatric Nurse Anesthesia. By the time I begin your program, I will have over 8 years of pediatric ICU experience. 

In 1990, there were approximately 137,000 physicians, 25,000 nurse practitioners (NPs), and 20,000 physician assistants (PAs) in the United States. In 1995, there were approximately 150,000 physicians, 60,000 NPs, and 25,000 PAs. The latest statistics show that in 2005, there are approximately 185,000 physicians, more than 100,000 NPs, and 50,000 PAs. The tipping point was reached when the number of NPs exceeded 100,000, because this was when legislators, insurers, and other healthcare providers realized the extent of the growth of the NP workforce and that NPs would be able to contribute substantially to healthcare provision in the future.

It is predicted that a major shift in primary care providers will occur by 2015. The number of physicians is projected to remain at approximately 185,000, while the number of NPs will increase to approximately 150,000 and PAs will number 75,000. If this projection holds true, it means that NPs and PAs will outnumber physicians in the United States by 2015.

For several years now, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has been advocating requiring advanced practice nurses to hold a professional doctorate degree, specifically the DNP. The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) has followed suit and also supports doctoral training for entry into nurse anesthesia practice by 2025. Thus, the recent proliferation of DNP degree programs. The AACN currently lists 73 DNP programs accepting students with more than 140 additional programs under consideration for a total of 212 current and prospective DNP programs to be established in the future.

Expanded roles for nurses have been both lauded and criticized since the inception of the concept of advanced practice nursing. Proponents have cited the pending physician shortage, particularly with respect to family practice physicians, in addition to a litany of additional arguments in support of the call for expanded roles. Skeptics, on the other hand, have been leery of allowing non-physicians to tread on grounds historically tended to exclusively by physicians.

Supporters of advanced roles for nursing professionals have claimed that advanced practice nurses have made significant contributions to healthcare, especially the improvement of patient outcomes combined with reduced costs. Advanced practice nurses have also been identified as key players in improving patient safety.

Letters of Intent for Admission to DNP Degree Programs

DNP Africa, Women’s Health, Education, Sample 1st Paragraph

Earning my BSN in 2005, I am now a highly accomplished nursing professional with extensive experience in acute care, particularly cardiac, orthopedic and trauma, as well as outpatient treatment. I now even co-own a medical consultation. I feel strongly that I am currently at the optimal time in my life to excel in your DNP Program with the wisdom that comes from experience combined with the high level of motivation that I have to do my utmost on behalf of the underserved. Being born and raised in Ethiopia inspired me to study towards the MPH Degree which I earned in 2012 and then went back to Africa to work in villages doing everything from assisting with deliveries to educating community members about malaria prevention and female circumcision.
