The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) was developed to meet the demand for nurse leaders in an increasingly complex health care industry.
The UC College of Nursing will be embarking upon a new doctoral pathway in January 2016. The launch of the BSN to DNP program offers a unique opportunity to bachelor’s prepared nurses to obtain both a master’s level and doctor of nursing practice education in an abbreviated time span.
As a result, some of the MSN tracks will be discontinued including the MSN in nurse anesthesia and the MSN in nursing administration. The last MSN cohort for nurse anesthesia will begin Fall 2015.
