Doctor of Nursing Practice
Nursing Education

The doctorate in nursing practice (DNP) with a concentration in Nursing Education is designed to address the nursing faculty shortage throughout the United States. The Regis DNP is scheduled so that those in the program can continue full-time employment. Classes are offered evenings, on weekends, on-line, or intensive. Candidates for the program are those nurses who are advanced nursing practice leaders, nurse practitioners, educators or clinical specialists. The DNP curriculum is comprised of 27 core curriculum credits and 9 elective credits in Education. A maximum of 6 graduate credits may be accepted for transfer. The length of the program varies from three to seven years based on how many courses a student takes per semester. For up-to-date tuition information, please view Regis Graduate Programs' Tuition and Fees.

It is important that you meet with the director of the DNP program or the Dean of the School of Nursing to develop your personal curriculum plan as the sequencing of courses can impact the time it takes you to complete the program.
