DNP graduates

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program integrates nursing science with biophysical, psychosocial, analytical and organizational sciences, which graduates use to understand the nature of health and health care delivery and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.

The DNP is a practice-focused doctoral degree earned by advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). The DNP serves as a clinical leader in transforming care of the individual, the community, and the healthcare system. Full and part-time degree completion options are available and can be completed in five to 14 semesters.
