This program prepares graduates to lead at the highest executive and clinical positions.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares nurse administrators and nurse clinicians to become leaders in healthcare through two specialized tracks: administration and advanced practice. Our innovative curriculum includes specialty courses related to your chosen track, and core courses in evidence-based practice, healthcare policy, leadership, theory and nursing informatics.
Our part-time, blended-course format allows you to work while earning a degree. Students enroll in two, 10-week courses simultaneously each semester. During the semester, each course meets twice on campus, with the remainder of classes delivered online. The DNP program begins in the fall, and is offered over 6 semesters, with summers off.
The DNP program incorporates a practicum experience and a capstone project that allows you to apply information learned in your coursework by collaborating with experts in healthcare organizations. View the admission requirements for this program.
