Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
acksonville University’s first doctoral degree, a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) begins in fall of 2011. Applications are now being accepted for the first group.
The DNP degree is a practice-focused doctorate that prepares Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) to further develop leadership and management skills, translate research into method and expand clinical knowledge and skills. The JU DNP is a postmaster’s program designed to accommodate the working schedules of APRNs.
The practice-focused program will begin on a part-time basis, but will mature and expand to full-time. Courses are offered in a hybrid format with some evening classes and the remaining course content delivered online. JU created the DNP to be attractive to advanced practice nurses who are working and designed it to accommodate their schedules and allow for customization to individual interests.
A post-master’s program, the DNP is aimed at further developing the clinical expertise needed in today’s complex healthcare environment. The JU DNP program has many unique features, including a clinical focus and a format designed with flexibility in mind to prepare expert advanced practice nurses to deliver high quality, cost-effective care.
According to data released by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) in March, enrollment in doctoral nursing programs has been rapidly increasing during the last five years, with a surge of as much as 35% last year.
