Become a Leader in Practice

Are you ready to take that next step in your career? Our flexible online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is designed for working advanced practice nursing professionals looking to make a greater impact on the world of healthcare. The low-residency, online DNP program is a post-master's, practice-focused program that prepares leaders in practice.  The low residency involves two required visits to campus; one for a 2-3 day intensive residency early in the program and a second to present and defend the DNP Project in the final semester.  All courses are offered fully online.  The online program admits students into two cohorts per year, in January and August.
