Sample 1st Paragraph for the DNP Application

I like to think that the strongest part of my application to your distinguished DNP Program in Nurse Anesthesia at the University of XXXX is my sheer devotion and enthusiasm for the critical care nursing. I have now spent one year in ICU at a Level 1 Trauma Center and I have found my calling, home, and center of gravity. Having obtained all of the required certifications for critical care, I set about excelling in PA and Swan Ganz catheters, CardioQ, rapid infusion, RSI and conscious sedation using BIS and train of four, drip titrations, bolts, line insertion procedures, bedside OR, and post resuscitation hypothermia. Perhaps the most salient aspect of the joy that I find in my work surrounds my engagement with multiple research projects to assist and implement evidenced based practice at the bedside.

Sample 1st Paragraph for the DNP, Nurse from Colombia, Children of Scarce Resources, Animal Assisted Education, AAE

A 26-year-old woman from Colombia, I have spent most of the last three years in North America, living and working in Miami as well as traveling through Canada. In addition to the rich experiences that I have compiled along the way, my English is now fully blossomed to the point that I feel very confident that I can excel in your distinguished program at XXXX University. Your program is my first choice both because I feel that I am a good fit in terms of your curriculum and areas of special expertise in addition to your appreciation for the importance of diversity in mental health counseling. The single-strongest aspect of my application to your competitive program is probably my extensive volunteer experience working with children of scare resources coupled to my growing involvement with and great passion for animal-assisted education, (AAE).

Statements of Excellence for the DNP Degree

Sample 1st Paragraph DNP Application, Religious Nurse, Global Mission

Following a successful 30-year career in nursing, I decided to take time out in order to give my life fully to God. Since 2012, I have been a member of the Order of St. Benedict. Now that I am a fully integrated member of the order – after living for a long time as a hermit in primitive conditions and going on a lengthy mission to Africa to minister to the most poor in a very violent, war torn part of that beleaguered continent, the order has decided that my mission should be to return to full-time nursing. I hope to be accepted to your distinguished DNP Program at Frontier University and earn the DNP Degree so as to be as highly qualified as possible for making my maximum contribution to the management and oversight of the global mission of the Church in the area of nursing.

Sample 1st Paragraph DNP

I have lived in much of the USA since I was raised by foster parents and grew up moving from one home to another; currently living and working in Oregon. The University of XXXX is my first choice among DNP Programs for a variety of reasons. I love trees, which provide me with energy and serenity, and earning my doctorate on a beautiful, peaceful, spacious, and wooded location such as the campus of the University of XXXX appeals to me enormously. Your DNP is nationally recognized as a research program and I aspire to make research the center of my world as a doctoral student. Finally, I do not like borrowing money and your program is one of the most affordable in the country, especially since you do not charge out of state fees. Thus, at the University of XXXX, I can pay my way through school to the DNP and not have the added strain of facing debts down the road.

1st 2 Paragraphs for the DNP, Public Health Nurse Leader, African Immigrant

I feel that I am at the optimal moment in my life to give my all to my education in nursing, so that I might experience greater levels of the joy of leadership in the decades to come. I seek a full immersion in nursing leadership from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and I am free to devote myself almost exclusively to my studies, in addition to fulfilling my responsibilities as a nurse. I want very much to earn the Doctor of Nursing Practice in your especially distinguished program so as to build a focus on nursing leadership in Africa.

An immigrant from Cameroon and now a US citizen, I am among a small minority of my countrymen and women who are fluent in written and spoken French as well as English, something that I hope to put to good use after completing your program and devoting myself more fully to Africa, probably working with one or more non-governmental organizations on our multilingual continent dominated by French and English. I graduated with my BSN Degree in May of last year, 2013. I now also have extensive experience working in NICU and Med-surg, in addition to my present position in psychiatric nursing where I have been learning a great deal about the challenges of substance abuse.
