Prepare to lead.

You're already an experienced nurse. Now you want to be a recognized partner in patient care. You want a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP).

Unlike a Ph.D. designed for academia, the DNP prepares you to excel in the clinical setting and provide extraordinary patient care.

Make a bigger difference.

Youll gain the skills and authority to assess, diagnose, create and implement a plan, both for individual patients and for vulnerable populations. Youll become a respected partner in working to improve patient outcomes, the quality of care, systems of care and the safety of the treatment environment.
Raise your profile.

The DNP gives you the business and research skills to work effectively with health care administrators, public health professionals and researchers.

Choose your specialty.
