Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
Are you ready to become a key player in today’s complex health care environment? Does a scholarly role that translates evidence-based knowledge into clinical practice and care delivery interest you?

With a Vanderbilt DNP degree, you will be prepared to critique nursing and other clinical scientific findings to design programs of care delivery that are locally acceptable, economically feasible and have significant impact on health care outcomes.
The Vanderbilt School of Nursing DNP experience offers:
-Entry with a BSN degree earning the MSN with a seamless transition into the DNP program (new for Fall 2011)
-Entry with an MSN for a 4-semesters full time (6 semesters part time), 74-credit hour program of study of which 39 hours may be transferred from your MSN degree.
-Learning built upon Vanderbilt’s 100-year history of leadership and excellence in nursing teaching, practice and research.
-Clinical integration tailored to each student’s scholarly interests, with clinical partners in health care agencies/organizations who support and facilitate the application of knowledge and skills from coursework to their clinical settings.
-Actively practicing faculty who will mentor you in an environment rich with evidence-based knowledge creation.

-A combination of on-campus study and online/distance learning methodologies for both real-time and virtual scholarly interaction and faculty mentoring – so that DNP students do not have to relocate or give up employment.
