Week 8 (06/20): This was the last and final week of DNP 825. This week I completed all my necessary paper work, assignments, and Typhon logs. This week showed me that weekly I made progress throughout the course and the profession of nursing overall. Health care delivery, nursing theories and clinical systems were expanded on throughout the course to help address healthcare management. The population of my practice hours were underserved, and some changes were helpful. Implementing teaching tools, medication management, and the use of patient portals were continued in this course. I was able to expand on my strengths of educational teaching and being resourceful. Resources utilized included cheaper medication prices, referrals to necessary healthcare providers, education for patients, teaching tools to utilize necessary equipment, and follow up calls after appointments. Overall this course has strengthened my leadership skills and helped me expand upon information that was learned. I look forward to future classes and one day obtaining DNP degree.
