The Nursing Department is thrilled to announce its new Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program that will be available to students starting in the fall semester. The DNP program is designed for master’s-prepared nurses who are seeking a doctoral degree.

The program, which is approved by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WASC Senior), is a practice-based doctoral program that prepares expert clinicians to develop, implement, and evaluate nursing practice using research knowledge and methods to improve patient and population-based care. Students will learn from faculty reflecting an interdisciplinary approach and team focus of health care delivery. The curricula is aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Essential of Doctor in Nursing Practice Education (2011).
