How does the DNP for Advanced Practice Nurses online program differ from the other DNP pathways?
There are three pathways to earning the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree: the hybrid RN to DNP, the online DNP for Advanced Practice Nurses, and the online DNP for Nurse Executives. The DNP for Advanced Practice Nurses is designed for advanced practitioner RNs who already hold both a bachelor’s and master’s degree and who wish to become clinical scholars.
What is the curriculum plan, and can I pursue this degree either full-time or part-time?
The 34-credit program is taught online, allowing you to study either part-time or full-time on your own time and balance a busy work/life schedule. The program’s dedicated faculty support you every step of the way, ensuring a personalized and interactive approach to nursing.
