Nursing Practice : Online


Why study Nursing Practice : Online?

UC's Post-Master's Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) online program is meant for nurses with a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) who want to continue their education and become leaders in the increasingly complex health care field.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Post-Master's DNP online program must have a master's in nursing from a program that leads to certification as a nurse practitioner (NP) or clinical nurse specialist (CNS), in community/public/occupational health, nursing administration, nurse anesthesia, or nurse midwifery. For more information, visit the DNP Admissions page.

The DNP is considered the terminal nursing practice degree and offers an alternative to research-focused PhD. DNP-prepared nurses are equipped to implement into practice settings the science developed by nurse researchers.
