Nursing Practice - Doctor of Nursing Practice (Online)
The DNP is a doctoral degree for nurses at the highest level of nursing practice. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has proposed that the DNP degree will be the level of entry for all advanced practice nurses by 2020. Practice-focused doctoral nursing programs prepare leaders for the highest level of practice and is the terminal practice degree. The post-MSN to DNP track is for advanced practice registered nurses (APRN's) who wish to earn the terminal clinical degree in nursing.
For application information, visit the School of Nursing website or contact the Nursing Graduate Advisor for more information about application and admission requirements at (575) 646-7770.
