Which Program Is Right for Me?

    nurse scientists who contribute to the
    development of scientific knowledge.
  • The DNP program prepares nurses for the practice
    degree in nursing.

Which Program is Right for Me?
  • The dual DNP/PhD program provides highly
    motivated and qualified students with an
    integrated advanced clinical and research program
    of study. Students focus on a clinical research
    area in the PhD program and a clinical specialty
    area in the DNP program.

  • reduces the time normally required to complete
    both degrees
