About the Program

You want to take your nursing skills further—and lead the way in population health and health system changes. In our DNP program, we can train you for a career in industry or academia and teach you how to improve health for the underserved.

We've identified three important skills you'll need, and we've made them the three components of our program. They are advanced clinical practice, leadership, and practice inquiry. As you go through our program, you'll learn to advocate for better health regulations, address health disparities, and assume clinical faculty positions so you can address the critical nursing-faculty shortage. You'll also complete a scholarly project, which will serve as your capstone experience. And finally, while all our courses are offered in a distance learning format, we will need you to come on campus between your first and second year for a two to three day intensive experience.
