The DNP Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) program prepares advanced practice nurses to improve healthcare within diverse patient populations and systems across the globe. Curriculum is based on the DNP Essentials (AACN, 2006) and includes coursework to elevate APRNs to a new stage of leadership, advocacy, and clinical scholarship within their chosen specialty.
BS-DNP — Choose this pathway if you have a BS in nursing and want to earn both the master’s and the doctor of nursing practice degrees in a continuous program.
DNP (post-master’s) — If you already have an MS in nursing with a certification as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), or Nurse Practitioner (NP), this is the pathway for you.
MS DNP admits in fall and spring.
