Appendix A: Signature Assignment

Personal Philosophy of Leadership and Innovation
(CLOs 1-6)

A philosophy is the way we see ourselves as DNP-prepared scholars and leaders. This
philosophy guides our actions, our behaviors, and our thoughts. One’s philosophy is influenced
by external and internal forces. Leadership philosophies change as you grow to understand
yourself within the context of leading, innovation and scholarship. Creating or finding your
leadership philosophy means that you must explore and reflect upon your personal and
professional values, assumptions, and beliefs about doctoral level leadership.

After reviewing your text and required readings to date, the AACN (2006) DNP Essentials II and
VIII, the Bondas (2006) article, Drinion (2014) article and leadership development criteria and
Suntiva’s (2015) Ten Questions to Identify Your Leadership Philosophy, write your philosophy
of DNP innovation and scholarly leadership that will guide your future (and current) advanced
nursing practice. Using APA (2009) *formatting, the paper is limited to 5-6 pages (excluding
title page and references) and should include a/n:

  1. Short and concise nursing leadership philosophy title
  2. Description of your leadership philosophy including:
    a. the foundational leadership theory
    b. characteristics of your philosophy
    c. qualities and skills attributed to your philosophy
    d. most important influences
  3. Application to advanced nursing practice
  4. Application to the DNP Essentials II and VIII

*Minimal APA style and formatting includes:

  1. Running head
  2. Title page
  3. Introduction (an abstract is not required)
  4. Body of paper with appropriate levels of headings
  5. Conclusion
  6. Matching in-text citations to References list
