Coming This Fall: Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree

The University will offer a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree through an innovative “executive format” beginning in the fall. The degree is the University’s second doctoral degree. The DNP prepares students to excel in the increasingly demanding field of nursing. 

The program requires DNP students to complete an evidence-based scholarly project that has the potential to positively change health care delivery and improve outcomes for vulnerable patients, families, communities or populations. In addition, each student will complete clinical hours related to the project. 

The program will position graduates well for the changes and opportunities that are expected to arise for health care practice in the future, including advancement in independent practice, leadership positions in a variety of practice settings, executives in health care organizations, directors of clinical programs, faculty positions responsible for clinical program delivery and teaching in the clinical setting.
