DNP over MSN?

  1. I'm graduating with my BSN in a few days and my teachers are talking to us about continuing our education eventually. One of the instructors said that there is a shift away from MSN and more schools and students are wanting to get their DNP instead. My college is actually ending their current MSN program and starting a DNP program next year. I was just wondering what everyone has heard about DNP programs and if those will be the new 'changes' in nursing. I know nursing is always changing. So is DNP the new MSN?
