Penn Nursing has been a leader in the science and practice of nursing since 1886, and continues to be at the forefront of advancing science, delivering solutions, and shaping health policy and practice to engender a healthier future.
The Post-Master’s DNP focuses on developing skills in translating research in practice, evaluating evidence, applying research in decision-making, and implementing viable clinical innovations to change practice and improve care delivery. Our hybrid online and in-person curriculum is designed to prepare professionals to become leaders in practice innovation by providing education in the translation of evidenced-based practice, project management, and leadership development.
In addition to our world-renowned faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, more than half of the required course curriculum will be offered online by fall 2019, with the goal of offering 100% of the course offerings online by 2020. This flexibility will allow nursing leaders the convenience of earning their PM-DNP while balancing their full-time career.
The Post-Master’s DNP requires 10 course units which can be completed in two years.
