Doctorate of Nursing Practice

Walsh University's Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) online format allows students to complete the requirements for a DNP with relative ease and on their own schedule. Each student is challenged to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to meet client needs in a variety of health care settings, all  while maintaining a grounding in Judeo-Christian values. Faculty and support staff are available to help students through the program.

The Online Nursing Doctorate Degree is designed for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice and offers an alternative to research-focused doctoral programs. DNP-prepared nurses are well-equipped to fully implement the science developed by nurse researchers prepared in PhD, DNSc, and other research-focused nursing doctorates.

In many institutions, advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), including Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Certified Nurse Mid-Wives, and Certified Nurse Anesthetists, are prepared in master's-degree programs that often carry a credit load equivalent to doctoral degrees in the other health professions. AACN's position statement calls for educating APRNs and nurses seeking top systems/organizational roles in DNP programs.
