The DNP Celebration Contest


FNU is pleased to announce our first ever DNP Celebration Contest!  We are celebrating 10 years of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program in 2018.  All DNP students and graduates are welcome to participate in this contest showcasing FNU’s DNP program. Those attending a Bound session in 2018 are encouraged to participate during their on-campus session. As Frontier nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners, you bring a unique perspective to the healthcare community.  With this contest, you can show or tell us the importance of obtaining the DNP and how the DNP impacts practice for NPs and CNMs.



1st Prize   $100 Gift Card to the FNU Gift Shop

2nd Prize  $75 Gift Card to the FNU Gift Shop

3rd Prize   $50 Gift Card to the FNU Gift Shop

Winners will be selected by a panel of faculty and staff from the DNP program and Marketing Department.


How to Participate/Rules

CREATIVITY IS KEY.  You can use photos, drawings, music, video, etc to relay your message.

There are 2 ways to participate in this contest. Choose either a poster or video project that you will submit during your first night of DNP Bound.  If you are not attending Bound on campus, you will submit a photo of your poster or upload your video via Google Drive and send to Stephanie.Boyd@frontier.edu


Create a poster or video* (90 seconds or less) that illustrates one or more of the following:

  • What is the most useful thing you’ve learned from obtaining your DNP degree?

  • Why did you choose to obtain your DNP and why was Frontier the best fit?

  • Why do you feel it is important for other NPs and CNMs to pursue the DNP?

  • What is the most important takeaway from your time in the DNP program?



  • Always follow HIPAA compliance and consider patient privacy.

  • If using photos or video footage of adults not affiliated with FNU, please obtain a FNU Video & Photo Release Form.  No photos or videos of children will be used without a parent/legal guardian’s submission of a minor photo consent form.

  • Submissions may be used by FNU Marketing on the website, blog, or social media channels at any time.

  • Ensure that the submission directly answers at least one of the questions posed in the ‘How to Participate’ Section above. There are no wrong answers, but there are certainly key ways to get your points across in a manner that will not be forgotten.  Be creative.


*Video Suggestions:


Use natural lighting when possible; make sure your background is free from distractions and noise.

If you are filming in an area with background noise, a headset/wired microphone is highly recommended for best sound quality.

Wear neutral colors; avoid busy prints or neon colors when possible.

If using an iphone or ipad, record with the device horizontal, not vertical (using a tripod is highly recommended as well).
