Post-Masters Doctor of Nursing Practice


The purpose of the post-masters Doctor of Nursing Practice curriculum is to provide certified registered nurse anesthetist, certified nurse practitioner, and certified clinical nurse specialist, nursing administration, and advanced public/community health nursing with education beyond that required for entry into practice to meet the need for safe, quality patient care in an increasingly complex health care environment. The program emphasizes critical thinking, careful assessment of current practices, and decision-making based on evaluation of the best available research. Additionally, the proposed offering will serve to meet the growing need for insightful, visionary leaders and educators in the specialty.
