Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree is designed for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice and offers an alternative to research-focused doctoral programs. DNP curricula build on traditional master's programs by providing education in evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and systems leadership, among other key areas. The DNP forum is a place to discuss the DNP degree and your career as a DNP-prepared nurse. What barriers to practice have you encountered? Has your scope of practice changed? Let's talk about the impact it has on nursing.
