University of Rochester School of Nursing, 601 Elmwood Ave., will host its annual Doctor of Nursing Practice Summit from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 27.
The development and implementation of the DNP degree was a response to concerns about the quality of care, patient safety and expectations related to the educational preparation of health care providers.
Guest speakers include Mary Terhaar, associate dean of academic affairs at Case Western Reserve University, and Kate FitzPatrick, senior vice president and chief nursing officer at University of Vermont Medical Center.
