The Nursing Practice program of the Northern Arizona University is a clinical doctorate with emphasis on enhancing leadership expertise in rural and underserved populations.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is designed to allow nurses holding a master’s degree (MS) in nursing to obtain a terminal degree in nursing. The DNP builds on master’s education and includes content related to healthcare leadership, policy, and population health. Students will develop in-depth knowledge of interprofessional collaboration, information systems and healthcare technology, and the analysis, synthesis, translation, and dissemination of scientific and evidence-based professional literature.
Learning experiences provided in this program include design and implementation of quality improvement and practice change projects, systematic and comprehensive investigation of topics related to population health, healthcare systems, and advanced nursing practice.
DNP graduates will have the knowledge to inform and lead practice innovation, policy development, and improve delivery of health care in our complex and evolving healthcare system. DNP-prepared nurses may hold positions in academia, clinical practice and healthcare administration in hospitals, government agencies, private industry, and clinical practice settings. The DNP at Northern Arizona University is a clinical doctorate with emphasis on enhancing leadership expertise in rural and underserved populations.
