The School of Nursing welcomed the inaugural class for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at a reception in late August. The five members of the new class were joined by program faculty members, Provost Thomas Burns, College of Health Sciences Dean Cathy Taylor and Director of Graduate Nursing Programs Leslie Higgins.
The new program is designed for nurse practitioners who hold an MSN degree. As the nursing profession evolves, so too will the DNP program with plans to provide a post-baccalaureate DNP to provide clinical training for future nurse practitioners as soon as 2015.
