Whats the difference b/w DNP and Ph.D?Register Today!
- by want to do good 86 Dec 28, '08Just a question, i was wondering what the difference is between DNP and an rn with a Ph.D. I know its a little silly, but it's confussing. I'm guessing that DNP is a nurse practitioner with a doctoral degree, so what kind of a nurse has a Ph.D?

I've also put a simple grid on my own website with the differences between the PHD and DNP programs at the University of Virginia (focus, courses, expectations, job outlooks, etc).
