Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
The DNP curriculum consists of a nursing major and a minor (in a complementary field). DNP students who have not completed a graduate statistics course within the past 5 years will be required to enroll in a graduate statistics course the first fall semester of the program. All students are expected to come to campus for a robust 5-day Resident Intensive Summer Experience (RISE) each year for the first three years of doctoral study. RISE attendance for part-time students may vary.
With a DNP you will be prepared to:
-generate and disseminate nursing practice knowledge to stimulate research and improve clinical outcomes;
-improve health outcomes through scientifically-based advanced practice within your chosen specialty;
-engage in and lead collaborative practice teams; and
-influence clinical practice transformation and policy initiatives.
