Graduate studies at the doctoral level place primary emphasis upon advanced professional nursing practice, theory, research, and  leadership roles in advancing health care delivery systems and application of research into practice. The Doctor of Nursing Practice  (DNP) represents the highest degree in nursing practice. Students build on knowledge acquired in their advanced nursing practice  master’s degree program. 

The post-masters to DNP option is available for those who currently hold an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) licensure  as a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMH-NP) or Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and who wish to expand their  knowledge and skills to be able to better interpret research, apply best practices and incorporate clinical knowledge to influence  health care policy. Contact a DNP advisor for more details.
