Applications for the DNP program are currently not being accepted. We hope to re-open the application process in the near future.

As the highest clinical degree in nursing, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program provides additional knowledge and skills in many aspects related to patient care, such as informatics, technology, and health care policy.

With the knowledge explosion in healthcare, advanced education in nursing is essential to meet the health care needs of the consumer. The DNP credential affords advanced practice nurses the opportunity to gain knowledge regarding necessary elements needed to deliver innovative, evidence based practice. The DNP program can be completed in a post-Bachelor’s or post-Master’s plan of study.
