I give many thanks to those who have mentored me and genuinely supported my growth throughout this process including my DNP organizational mentor Dr. Gary Shelton, my academic advisor Dr. Valarie Cotter and my faculty advisor Dr Bryan Hansen. Without them, I would not be able to pursue my dream of being a doctorally-prepared nurse practitioner.
