Become a Nurse Leader
Distinguish yourself as a DNP nurse leader. Influence change at an executive level, inform decision-making, and transform models of care.
The DNP degree furthers the student's focus on the leadership role. Particular emphasis is placed on translational methods in evidence-based practice that drive innovation in health care organizations and systems. The Post MS-DNP is designed for Masters prepared nurses to obtain the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in one of two pathways:
- Direct Care for advanced practice registered nurses (APRN)
- Organizational Leadership (non-APRNs, i.e., for nurse administrators, and APRNs)
As a doctoral student in the Post-MS to DNP track you will:
- Develop skills to influence public policy through participation in professional organizations and health policy activities at the local, national, and global level.
- Take courses in evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and systems leadership.
- Complete the program in as few as five semesters.
- Have options for full-time and part-time programs of study.
- Experience courses in online and in an executive format.
