About the Program

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The DNP degree is a practice doctorate degree for registered nurses who desire to become an advance practice registered nurse in the specialty area of acute care, family, pediatric, psych-mental health or nurse anesthesia. The DNP degree is also available for nurse executives who impact healthcare outcomes through leadership at an executive’s system level.

Registered nurses with a BSN or MSN can enter one of the four DNP-Nurse Practitioner (NP) programs or Nurse Anesthesia and upon graduation can take the certification exam for that specialty. Certified advanced practice nurses with a MSN can enter the “traditional” post-masters DNP program to obtain the additional coursework required for the DNP degree.

There are two entry points to the DNP program: 

(1) Registered nurses with a BSN or MSN can enter one of the four DNP-Nurse Practitioner (NP) programs or Nurse Anesthesia and upon graduation can take the certification exam for that specialty.

(2) Certified advanced practice nurses with a MSN can enter the “traditional” post-masters DNP program to obtain the additional coursework required for the DNP degree.
