For nurse practitioners who want to provide person-centered care to acutely ill adolescents through adults
We offer three post-bachelor’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program options that allow you to continue your education while taking on an expanded role in clinical practice, policy or leadership.
You will return to campus for two to three days between your first and second years for lectures designed to prepare you for your clinical research project.
Primary Care Seminar
All nurse practitioner students must attend a five-day course, NURS 223: Primary Care Seminar. During the seminar, your clinical skills will be evaluated through hands-on clinical experiences and instruction. You will work with faculty to apply what you learned in NURS 220: Advanced Pathophysiology; NURS 234: Pharmacology; and NURS 222: Advanced Health Assessment.
Final Skills Assessment
All nurse practitioner students are required to complete a final skills assessment, which is two days before graduation, so you can participate in graduation ceremonies on the same trip. This skills assessment includes testing with standardized patients, a comprehensive exam and sessions on special clinical skills.
At the end of your third year (prior to graduation) you will present your work in an open forum to the faculty and your peers.
