The Doctor of Nursing Practice with an Emphasis in Educational Leadership program at Grand Canyon University prepares nurses who wish to progress to the pinnacle of their profession.
Students gain advanced knowledge and sharpen clinical skills as they examine best practices in nursing education and education program implementation. As a private Christian university, GCU encourages students to apply the Christian worldview and its concept of servant leadership. Nurse leaders benefit from examining values-based worldviews and their influence on patient care across different cultures.
Graduates with a doctorate in nursing education possess the advanced knowledge and clinical skills necessary to successfully lead nursing teams, inspire positive change in health care organizations and improve patient outcomes.
A DNP with an Emphasis in Educational Leadership may prepare graduates to become nurse education leaders who design and implement programs for workforce development, centers for nursing excellence and nursing education partnerships.
Some graduates with a DNP in nursing education may transition to academic settings. Graduates may work directly with the next generation of nurse leaders or inspire excellence from a nursing education administration position.
