Augusta University established Georgia's first Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in 2005.

The DNP includes seven degree tracks for post-BSN and post-MSN study.

Our doctoral-level education provides nurses the clinical and management expertise to improve health care outcomes, making them expert collaborators in solving health care problems in systems.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Augusta University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

Attend a virtual information to session to learn more about the DNP programs.

*If you are interested in the DNP/AGACNP, FNP, PMHNP, PNP, or Post-Graduate Certificate programs, be aware that you must reside in either Georgia or South Carolina to attend the program due to the clinical requirements and need for instructors to visit you, your preceptor, and clinical site.
