Program Overview

Healthcare is always evolving, and there is a real need for talented people like you to drive that change. The Doctor of Nursing Practice Program prepares students at the highest level of practice to analyze current evidence and integrate systems thinking as a foundation for organizational change management and quality improvement initiatives to improve practice, education, and patient care in various settings.

To accommodate the schedules of working professionals, our DNP degree is centered on an inclusive and supportive cohort class strategy. The program can be completed in two years. Courses integrate elements to meet the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice. Students complete residency hours in areas of their choice to develop and hone leadership and practice skills.
