Our post-master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice degree is a comprehensive online program that allows master’s-prepared nurses from all program specialties to enhance their clinical and leadership experience. Students can complete their DNP project at their own site of employment, and, in doing so, have an impact on their own institution.
Being at the forefront of advancing science, delivering solutions, and shaping health policy and practice, the goal of the DNP program is developing leaders in practice innovation. The DNP program prepares professionals by providing education in the translation of research, implementation of evidence-based practice, project management, and leadership development.
At completion of the DNP program, a student will advance high quality, equitable
and accessible healthcare by:
- Developing ways to improve health and healthcare outcomes through translating research, evaluating evidence-based practice, and implementing innovative ideas.
- Applying project management acumen and data analytics to improve outcomes for patient/family, systems, or community-based care.
- Disseminating practice knowledge that contributes to nursing or interprofessional scholarship.
