New Online Program Available at NDSU Department of Nursing for Doctor Of Nursing Practice MS-DNP/FNP
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program emphasizes evidenced-based approaches to healthcare using strategic problem-solving skills. The changing demands of the Nation’s complex health environment will require the highest level of scientific knowledge and practice expertise to assure high quality patient outcomes.
The NDSU DNP is a terminal degree that prepares the family nurse practitioner graduate to provide the most advanced level of nursing care for individuals, families, and communities. The DNP program educates the nurse practitioner graduate for expert practice in leadership and clinical roles.
The aim of the Department of Nursing’s Post-MS to DNP FNP program is to prepare DNP family nurse practitioners to provide health care services for underserved and/or rural populations. This distance delivered graduate program will enable masters prepared registered nurses to pursue a DNP with eligibility to sit for Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Certification.
