So, against my better judgment, I am looking at DNP programs. I don't want to make the same mistake I did in Grad School and end up in a DNP program that is 100% about underserved populations and taught with a liberal agenda. For my next educational endeavor, I simply prefer to focus on the science. If you know of a DNP program in a school that has a conservative philosophy and focuses on CPGs and the standard of care, please let me know. Thanks.
Since I am allergic to bees, I really should be running away from this hornet's nest, however...
I think you will have a very hard time finding what you are looking for because schools get a great deal of funding from the government and/or grants. When those 2 entities give away money, their main priority is to give to the under-served/underprivileged populations. Furthermore, nursing schools need to practice or do clinicals in under-served areas because the wealthier community hospitals don't want students but the inner city clinics and hospitals can't pay enough to keep a full RN staff on board so they welcome us with open arms. Just like medical residents, NP students fill a need and in return - get to practice on the under-served.
