The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree provides a foundation for leadership development and refinement of clinical management skills for currently practicing Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs). DNP students will identify a vulnerable population of interest during their coursework. Each course will allow exploration of the population from differing perspectives and build on their empirical knowledge base. The population of interest also will serve as the focus for clinical skill development. The degree program will be offered primarily in an asynchronous online format augmented by synchronous online teaching.
The 33 credit hour curriculum consists of 8 courses (480 clinical practicum/residency hours) building on the preparation of certified APRNs.
