Doctor of Nursing Practice

The online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) prepares Family Nurse Practitioners (FNPs) to be leaders in the provision of primary care in our region and beyond.

What You’ll Learn

Our 30-credit post-master’s program involves five didactic courses including content relating to health care systems leadership, evaluating clinical outcomes, translating research into evidence based practice, quality improvement, and professional writing. In addition, all students will complete and disseminate a clinically-based project.

Coursework combines the flexibility of online learning with opportunities to interact remotely or in-person with supportive campus-based faculty mentors. Our program faculty remain active in clinical practice and professional leadership roles. The program is self-paced and can be completed one course at a time, allowing Family Nurse Practitioners to maintain employment while completing their DNP.
