In addition, seamless progression into the DNP program is available for qualified undergraduate students.
Our faculty are recognized experts in their fields who challenge and motivate students to surpass their career goals. Students in our clinical doctorate explore evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and systems leadership –among many other vital areas– as they build upon advanced competencies for complex nursing practice and research. Our scholars create capstone projects that investigate a wide range of topics –poverty and vulnerable communities; health promotion, prevention, and literacy; access to care; community-based research; and social determinants of health, to name a few– and translate evidence into findings that advance the forefront of practice improvement.

Nurse Practitioners in demand
Doctorally-prepared nurse practitioners are in demand and enjoy a wide range of career options thanks in part to the expansion of Scope of Practice for nurse practitioners, changes to health care reform, and the aging baby boom generation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by 2024, the nurse practitioner field will grow by 35 percent; five times the national average for all occupations. NPs were the second highest ranked profession in the U.S. News & World Report’s 'The 100 Best Jobs List' of 2017 and the demand for DNP-prepared nurse practitioners will continue to expand.
