National studies, professional organizations and accrediting bodies have emphasized the need for advanced practice nurses to be doctorally prepared and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is recognized as the terminal degree for advanced practice nurses. Advanced practice nursing is the provision of expert nursing care that influences healthcare outcomes for individuals or populations.This expert nursing care includes the provision of direct care management and indirect care such as nursing administration, executive leadership, systems organization, informatics and population health.
AUM’s DNP program builds on the Master of Science in Nursing, allowing nurses to integrate specialized knowledge, theories, and research from nursing science and related disciplines into the practice of nursing. Graduates are prepared to contribute to healthcare systems and academic centers as advanced practice registered nurses, nurse leaders, and nurse educators.
The DNP is a six-semester online program. Practicum experiences and projects will be tailored to the student’s individual area of interest such as advanced practice, nursing leadership or nursing education.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice plan of study includes 38-42 credit hours and 510 clinical hours. For more information and admission requirements, please review the 2019 DNP Handbook or contact the Academic Advisor and Recruiting Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
