The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares graduates to perform at the highest level of advanced nursing practice. The foundation for practice expertise with a population health focus will enable the graduate to plan and lead evidenced-based interventions, quality improvement strategies and health policy changes that address patient safety, promote patient-centered care, and reduce health disparities among diverse groups.
NOTE: The School of Nursing has suspended admissions to four master’s degree programs, Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) Nursing of Children, CNS Adult/Gerontology, Health Services Administration (HSAD), and Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) and their corresponding post-master’s certificate programs. The MSN NP programs are no longer accepting applicants as of July 1, 2016. The final cohort of MSN NP’s (Psychiatric Mental Health, Family Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Nurse practitioner) and post-master’s certificate applicants will begin classes in the fall of 2016.
The School of Nursing is fully committed to students recently admitted and/or currently attending graduate programs and will ensure that they are able to complete their program.
