Designed to help BSN-prepared RNs achieve the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree seamlessly and expeditiously, the DNP program is the right choice for RNs seeking professional advancement and growth. Now offering the post-baccalaureate (BSN-DNP) entry point to the DNP program, the School of Nursing is setting the pace for cutting-edge doctoral education. Program graduates are awarded a Doctor Nursing Practice degree, which is the appropriate degree for individuals seeking careers as nurse practitioners, midwives, anesthetists, administrators or staff development professionals, to name a few.
Additionally, the post-baccalaureate DNP entry offers both part-time and full-time plans of study, as well as small class sizes, low tuition costs and face-to-face interactions with expert faculty and colleagues. BSN-DNP students also have the option of choosing from three tracks. Population-focused nurse practitioner certifications are available for both the Family Nurse Practitioner and Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner tracks, and post-baccalaureate DNP students also have the option of choosing an emphasis in Nursing and Health Care Administration.
